Driver was very knowledgeable. Safe driver. Very accommodating. Told us all about the cemetery rules.
Was a little late- but will call you if you leave your cell number.
We went to varied and interesting parts of New Orleans. Lee was our guide and was very knowledgable about the city and its history. Highly recommend this tour for anyone wanting an excellent overview of the city.
Tour guide was a gifted speaker with a abundance of information that he was able to share continuously while driving around the city. It was amazing how he kept pace with the flow of the attractions and the descriptions. Only drawback, of mine, not his, was that I had difficulty keeping up with his rhythm. This was an awesome tour and tour guide for what all you see and learn.
We had a great time on the cemetery and city tour on Friday morning September 28th. I can't remember our tour guide's name, but he did an excellent job!!
Very informative. Our tour guide was great. We loved stopping at the park and eating a beignet. The cemetery tour was fascinating.
Tour was great BUT annoyed I paid Viatow 45usd hotels selling at 8/10usd
Covered all the areas of the city. Would of likes more time to spend at the park to walk around and less time on the expressway.
I thought this tour was great. I didn't have a lot of time to explore New Orleansin a class for most of my time there, so this tour enabled me to see the highlights of the city, enabling me to select a few places to revisit. Loved the cemetery and seeing the old houses with their beautiful architecture as well as the history that was shared. I could have done without the refreshment stop, but then again some folks may have needed it. Also, I have arthiritis which limits my comfort with walking, so this was perfect for me!
great way to see the city. lots of information was given to us also.
This was an excellent tour. The leader was delightful. We thought about skippig the Katrina part but were happy we learned know about this sad event.
We really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very informative and entertaining. We hit some traffic, but he even made that an opportunity to tell us about some of the area that was not really on the tour.
We had a great experience on this tour and would absolutely take it again.
The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The bus was comfortable. I may have misread the tour description as I don't believe the tour matched what was advertised, but I would definitely recommend them!
This tour was a great way to see a lot of the city in a few short hours. The guide was very knowledgeable. Best o all it's run by a local family.
We all enjoyed the tour. Our driver/guide was well informed and very articulate. The van was very comfortable.
A little too much emphasis on property values and the ease or not of gaining admittance to the local universities - not of too much interest to overseas visitors. Otherwise a very knowledgeable and good tour guide.
Tour was great,driver very informative. We learned and saw a lot of New Orleans.
