Funny enough I was the only one on this tour at 10am. I was surprised and excited. I was picked up from my brothers apartment on Bourbon Street, that was great! I could sleep in and not worry about rushing across the Quarter. My tour guide was exceptional, and knew his stuff. It was exactly the kind of tour I wanted, and helped me truly understand what was happening during Katrina in 2005.

Excellent Tour

As a former resident of New Orleans, I was pleasantly surprised to see and hear about so many things I had never seen before. Our guide was really knowledgable and quite enjoyable. This tour was a really great bargain. On top of everything else, I fouled up my scheduling and missed our scheduled morning tour time. But getyourguide was very cooperative and moved us to the afternoon trip. Thank you!

couldn't have asked for a better experience

In a city so with so much personality it would be a shame to end up on a cookie cutter tour. That's why you should definitely book your tour with Celebration. Thank so much to Ozzy Jr for providing such an enjoyable and info-packed morning drive around so many parts of the city that we've never seen on 3 previous trips to New Orleans. The level of service was exceptional. The tour started right on time with pick up at our hotel. Ozzy Jr has an extensive knowledge of recent and past history of New Orleans and clearly loves the city. We will definitely contact Celebration Tours on our next visit.
