My husband and I certainly enjoyed our city tour giving a very good overview of the city, sights and as we were travelling around learning a lot about the impact and history of Hurricane Katrina which impacted on this city irrevocably. It was interesting to visit one of the many cemeteries and learn about the local practices of the funeral, the mausoleums, and history. The houses in the Garden District were a visual feast and we learned about the various Mardi Gras celebrations with many strings of beads still hanging on the lines. We had the opportunity to taste the famous beignets with a coffee from the Cafe du Monde in the beautiful botanical gardens also. Our guide was very knowledgeable, had a great sense of humour, and helped make our tour a very worthwhile value for money experience. Thank you!

Darren was great! He was very knowledgeable & cracked us up most of the time along the way. It was great that they picked you up at your hotel & took you to the larger bus to start your tour. Would've liked to walk around the cemetery longer than 10 minutes since it had finally stopped raining though! Would definitely recommend you take this tour!

So enjoyed the tour. Tour Guide David was Excellent. His knowledge and explanations of the city, the neighborhoods, the impact of Katrina, and the recovery effort was superb. We saw and learned so much in a short period of time. A small group on a minibus is the way to go. Thank you to David and the supporting staff and drivers. All went so smoothly. A first class operation.
