This was a very enjoyable and fascinating tour of New Orleans and the Mississippi Delta. I learned about how New Orleans was formed, the effects of Hurricane Katrina and how the city has recovered and what it’s doing to protect itself from future storm surge events. The visit to Bayou Sauvage National Wildlife Refuge was particularly special, a very peaceful and beautiful place and a haven for birds. Barbara was a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. I’d highly recommend thus tour.
Peter was terrific! It is obvious that he loves what he does. The conversation was lively. The commentary was well researched. The delivery was animated. Great job! Thank you.
The van was comfortable, the guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic. The experience gave us a wonderful sense off New Orleans and it's environs! If you are into birding we highly recommend that tour as well.
The tour was very interesting and well organized. Points made were clearly explained. Van was nice. I highly recommend it.
Barbara is so knowledgeable about the area, and accommodated our personal interests. This experience really enhanced our visit to New Orleans. Highly recommend!
The tour truly provided the full Delta experience. For any visitor interested in seeing the Mississippi River- past, present, and future- this is the tour to go on. Plus, the bird sightings were also fun to name thanks to a true naturalist tour guide.
I thought the tour was very well presented. Extreamly informative about about the beginning of the Delta as well as all of the wild life here in the marsh and delta area
Great experience taking the Great Delta Tour last Saturday with friends. Enjoyed seeing parts of the New Orleans area I've never visited before, learned interesting Katrina facts from specific points in the city, and viewed beautiful birds in natural, wild habitats around the area. Overall, very enjoyable and informative.
What a fun outing!! We thoroughly enjoyed it! Our driver and guide were so warm and friendly! And shared so much fun, interesting information! I would recommend this to any visitor to the city! Thanks for an outstanding experience!!
Tour guides are extremely well informed and the van is comfortable and impeccably clean!
