Great information in an entertaining way. A stop for beignets and a chance to walk around one of the graveyards. S great start to our trip
This was an enjoyable tour with lots of fun facts about NOLA. Our guide, Ken, was great and very knowledgeable. And, in case you were wondering, there is a restroom break.
The tour was exciting. The bus driver Jude knew the city and its history which made for good storytelling.
The various stops along the tour Jackson square, cemetery, city park, shotgun houses, Katrina damaged houses, etc. were great but made more interesting by Jude's detailed and in-depth historical contexts.
This tour was very entertaining. Our bus driver/tour guide I believe his name was Glenn gave nonstop information about the city infused with history, jokes, and pop culture tidbits. We stopped at St. Louis No 3 Cemetary and the City Park/Sculpture Garden. This tour is a great way to see the city, including the outskirts of the French Quarter.
Very informative and enjoyable tour. This tour was absolutely terrific due to the driver/guide Gerald. He gave non-stop information, while injecting humor and using a professional delivery. not monotone, like some other tours we have been on. Also he even re-capped at the end of the tour! Also gave restaurant recommendations.
With the typical southern hospitality flair we were guided around the city with very useful information and experiences.
My 3 sisters and I took the New Orleans City Bus Tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Our driver was so gracious and so informative. Really told the history of New Orleans. Could not have learned the history on our own. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Very knowledgeable tour guide! Enjoyed the sights as well as the stories!
It was the best way I could have spent my time and money while I was in the city. My wife, daughter and I were fascinated and had a great time. Guide was knowledgable and personable. I highly recommend this tour!!
A great overview of the city and surrounds plenty of history and facts and Easy to hear and understand the driver
Tour leader had an incredible amount of information for us...we loved it.
Great informative guide. Funny. He stayed behind afterwards to answer additional questions from people.
Driver and guide are standouts, made the tour for sure, don't remember the names, but both did a sensational job. Especially the guide her knowledge of your great city and its people was just great, will remember this for sure.
AWESOME!!!!! HUMOUROUS!!!!! DELIGHTFUL!!!!! HISTORY-FILLED!!!! are all words that describe this tour. OUR guide KENDRAIL, not sure if I spelled it correctly, incorporated humor, history and plenty of secrets of New Orleans in this BEAUTIFULLY guided tour through the STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL Crescent City. Kendrail pointed out little known facts the entire time. I almost never wanted the tour to end. Kendrail is a WONDERFUL tour guide. I even booked another tour that he ONLY drove for, wished that he had that tour but having him on the bus was just as nice. I HIGHLY recommend this tour to one and to all. EXPERIENCE NEW ORLEANS the BESY way on the Motor coaches, roomy and air-conditioned. Kendrail is the BEST tour guide.
Gerald really knew his stuff. We really enjoyed the bus tour of the highlights of New Orleans. We could not have learned all the facts without it. We only had a short time in New Orleans and the tour fit in perfectly!
