Mike was so passionate about NOLA culture, and had so much information for us! Easily the most knowledgeable tour guide I met in New Orleans. The tour was timed out exceptionally well, giving us time to stretch our legs and refresh ourselves here and there. Our driver was very safe and the ride was smooth. I will surely be booking with Tour Orleans again on my next visit!!!
Andrew was knowledgeable and amazing in the detail of the tour. Packed a lot into 2.5 hours. Definitely a quick way to get an overview of the city.
Very good tour. Andrew was on top of his game. Would recommend it to a friend.
Andrew was an outstanding tour guide with a cornucopia of facts and NOLA TALES
Very informative, Andrew was a great guide.
This is my 2nd time taking the 150 minute City Tour. I was expecting to get repeat information and was pleasantly surprised that we received a totally fresh experience with new history highlights. Sean Patrick And Keisha did an amazing job of educating us and covered a lot of area! Thank you for sharing your beautiful city with us. Look forward to taking this tour every time I visit!

Great tours, guides were awesome very informative.
Excellent service. Our guide, D.J., was very knowledgeable and provided great deal on information during the tour.
No suggestions. You guys patiently waited for customers, provided an overall history and present concerns regarding Nola.
Trish was awesome!!!!!!! She should be im charge of ALL THE TOURS. It was such a fun and enlightening experience thanks tonher. Wr went on another tour the next day to get some New Orleans culture and the tour guide was nowhere near as informative as her. I would definitely book this tour again if I can always have Trish as our guide! I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and has recommended this to all of my friends with upcoming trups to Nawlins. Thanks! I cant say enough good things!
Everyone should go on the City Tour. It’s just the right amount of information and the right length of time.I wish i could give them more stars. Our Guides were Roni and Keisha. Keisha is a born and raised New Orleaner who really loves to drive and takes pride in a smooth and pleasant experience. It started to rain and she offered up her own umbrella. Roni is a walking encyclopedia. He is also very knowledgeable about the area and history overall. They worked together quite well and had a back up plan for the rain. I will look to do another tour with them again the next time I’m in town. The service was fantastic.
My daughters and I really enjoyed this tour. We learned soooo much about New Orleans in such a short about of time. Tyler our tour guide was Amazing!! So nice and very knowledgeable about every inch of the city!
We thoroughly enjoyed our city tour. Our guide Andrew was very knowledgeable and professional at all times.
Sent my mother and daughter on the City Tour Bus and they loved it. A lot of information with a great tour guide!!
The city tour was great! It was very informative & fun. We had Sean Byrd & Kisha, both were AWESOME! Would highly recommend this city tour.
Great guide. Very informative.
Not only did we see soooo much more than we had hoped for, our tour guide Sean Bird and driver Corey were the best we have ever met. The tour was fun and informative. They were AWESOME and we will do this tour again on our next trip.

Stopped by a tourist office for brochures and scheduled a 7:00pm tour. Paid the $60.00 deposit which has to be paid cash only. Rest was due upon receipt which was 75.00 more. This was for three people. Met at 6:30 in the french quarters. The representatives stand on the sidewalk and ask who is there for a tour, it would be helpful if they wore t shirt advertising their company so you would know. You can pay the balance due with a credit card. There are two cemetary stops along the way, a bar stop or you can walk to corner for soft drinks at a gas station and a stop along a bridge. This tour is about 2 hours, they started late. The bus will not pull out until it is full so you may have to wait on people who cant tell time to get there. Same thing on the stops, you have to sit and wait for the other people to load back up even though you are told what time to be back on bus. Alcoholic beverages are allowed on bus, plastic only. Jared was our driver and it was good. We would have liked more ghost type or details about the serial killers in NOLA but that was probably on another tour. We heard alot of the same details we heard on a morning tour of the city. Jared is funny and enjoyable.
excellent staff (tour guide and van driver)…..well worth the time and money spent. Will take this tour 3xs/year when visiting....so much information.....and especially with different guide each time.....appreciate.
Tyler has a cellular sense of New Orleans that makes you feel you have the insider view of this exotic and fleshy city. I’ve come home a believer in the mystical pull of NOLA.
We had John, an incredibly knowledgeable tour guide. We learned so much about New Orleans in a presentation that was dynamic and informed by personal experiences and research. Get this tour, preferably early in your visit.
Justin was great at mixing history with fun facts!
Our driver and guide were both great! I also like that it wasn't a big bus size the smaller vans were really nice as well. Looking forward to doing it again next time I come back there!
Guide was excellent. Thank you.
This tour was amazing!!! It teaches alot about the city in every aspect.
Our tour guide Sean Byrd was fantastic! He is very engaging and knowledgeable and the tour was a great start to our trip to NOLA.
Sean Bird was very knowledgeable about the history of the city and shared interesting facts and tidbits. He was very engaging. We also liked all that we were able to see on this tour including different neighborhoods outside of the French Quarter, the Garden District, and the City Park, Cemetery. Perfect amount of time.
Your was great and educational
DJ was a great guide. Knowledgeable and very personable.
Had fun on our tour, unfortunately it was raining cats and dogs and it made for a wet and cold tour. Just wanted to go and get warm.
Very knowledgeable and helpful guide - well worth the money!
Excellent trip, superb guide and driver, the trip was so informative,it gave a great insight into New Orleans.Small audience and just the right duration.
The trip was great very good history of New Orleans!! They were very nice even with us running late. I will definitely take more tours..
Great tourguide!! Funny and entertaining
What a great (and fun!) tour! From being picked up at our hotel (convenient), to the comfortable bus, to our funny (and fast talking) and very knowledgeable guide DJ...our group of six thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We learned so much about the fascinating history of New Orleans. One tip: take this tour on your first day in this wonderful city...then you’ll have time to explore all the places you’ll see on this terrific tour. Thank you, DJ, for a great afternoon in NOLA!
Andrew was an amazing tour guy and goes above and beyond . Highly recommend!!!
This tour was everything we wanted. They picked us up at our hotel. They covered the listed topics with energy and humor. We learned much more than we did in our previous tours, particularly facts and details regarding Katrina. The value was more than fair. We highly recommend this tour.
The bus and the guide were great
If you are looking for a quick 2-3 hour tour of the city, this was a great tour. We hit all of the spots of the city and learned about the history of the city while riding around in a comfortable tour van/bus. We even stopped For beignets! My tour guide and the driver were awesome!
Guide and driver were nice
My daughter and I had a wonderful time on the New Orleans city tour with Roni (our tour guide) and Eddie (our driver). They were both passionate about New Orleans and made us feel very welcome to their special city. They were both very patient as we hammered them for two hours with tons of questions, but we got solid answers to everything we asked! We especially enjoyed the stop at the New Orleans Museum of the Arts’ Sculpture Garden and the visit to the Catholic cemetery. Both were great photo opportunities. We learned a lot about why people from New Orleans may choose to inter their loved ones above ground, and all the ins and outs of that. It was really fascinating and eye opening. We also appreciated all the information on Katrina; Mardi Gras; the street art of New Orleans; famous athletes, musicians, and painters from the city; as well as all the tips on great museums and restaurants to check out. We are already planning our return trip to NOLA! Thank you, Roni and Eddie!
We learned a lot about the city. Our tour guide, John, was very knowledgeable and also entertaining.
