Had a brilliant city tour our driver/guide Ken was excellent so knowledgeable would recommend the tour, went on the Natchez steam boat down the Mississippi but found it quite slow and boring
Best city tour I have been on since you saw a little bit of everything!
Really great tour combination. Tour guide on the bus was full of information, she was a history teacher. Answered questions about the city and sights and this was really enjoyable. Traveled and saw many sights of the city that we may not have been able to see by foot or trolley. The boat was nice, we had great weather, it was a narrated tour going one way, and a sit back relaxing ride back. Recommend to all.
This was an awesome tour! First, we did the bus tour with one of the best tour guides ever, Mike Marino. He was very knowledgeable and funny. Then we went back to the dock go aboard the steamboat Natchez. There was a buffet which I didn't partake of and great jazz music. It was a very relaxing experience
The city tour was amazing,very interesting ,and the tour guide who was born in New Orleans ,made the tour extra good .He explained every thing possible about the place as well as being funny .Unfortunately our trip on the steamboat was cancelled due to being serviced and cleaned .so cant comment.
Our bus tour and trip with the Natchez Steamboat was totally awesome. Our guide Jude was great, very informative. The food, on board, was delicious! Our experience in New Orleans was memorable. Oh the beignets were to die for!
Our guide, Gene, with Tours by Isabelle was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the history of NOLA, and gave us some great restaurant recommendations. We booked the smaller group tour and arranged for pickup at our hotel in a small van. Worth the extra .
Had an enjoyable day learning the history about New Orleans. Our guide and driver Kindrell with Greyline tours was an excellent guide and provided top service to my group.
Great tour. Only issue was the city tour was late due to train blocking entrance to harbour area. The actual tours were very enjoyable
Our bus tour guide Kendall was awesome..very knowledgable, funny, definately kept our interest. We had a beautiful day for a boat ride. It was a great interesting and informative ride also.
Great tour. Our city tour guide was very informative and friendly. The Natchez staff could use a little lesson in customer service.
Gerald, our bus driver/guide was very entertaining and informative during the morning tour of the city. In fact we used his commentary and suggestions to plan our personal tour the following day. The Natchez harbour cruise was a very pleasant way to grab a snack, sit back and relax in the breeze on a very hot and humid day. The commentary was informative and the jazz band provided excellent musical entertainment. All in all, a great way to get our first introduction to the Big Easy.

This was a great tour. Our driver and tour guide was knowledgeable and funny. He kept the tour going in a timely manner but wasn't pushy. I would highly recommend this tour. The steamboat part of the tour was also interesting. Can't really comment on the food as we chose to just relax and find a place out on the deck to watch and listen. They did a great job narrating what we were passing.
The tour was everything I hoped it would be. Our tour guide was amazing and very informative. We were able to get a real 'lay of the land' during the city tour and a nice lunch with live jazz music during the boat tour. Afterwards, I was right next tot he French quarter to walk around Jackson Square and buy a couple of gifts for the folks back hope. I would highly recommend this trip as an introduction to the area!
excellent way to see the highlights of the city in a short period of time. bus tour was non stressful, lots of information. Helpful to have a city map if you want to track your trek.
Had a great day touring, learning and enjoying our day in New Orleans. Thanks to Viator for organizing and making this a memorable experience. Our bus tour guide Ken was fantastic, informative, solid grasp of historical contributions to the city and our country. Ask for Ken for your tour, you'll be glad you did. This river scenic tour / cruse was wonderful and we had a great meal as well. So much to see and process, need to go down river slower so we can take it all in.
Thumbs UP day.
