I had such a wonderful time hopping on and off the tour bus. The tour guides were very informative and pleasant. I experience an awesome time with the gentlemen that did the walking tour in the Garden District. I thought I did a review, but I do not see it. So I wanted to make sure this is complete. I traveled to New Orleans December 2-7. My walking tour in the Garden District was on Friday, December 6, 2020. Please let the gentlemen know that did that walking tour, He is the BEST!!!! Thank you

Nice tour and helpful info about the city. The bus has brochures which contain extra discounts to a few attractions in the city. I enjoyed the tour guides although different information is given by different guides. The stop at Basin street has a nice mini museum with info of attractions in the city.(pic) With 3 day pass comes 2 walking tours free which I enjoyed. Tip suggested for guide/driver of bus and walking guides. The only thing I didn't enjoy was the price and time frame the buses run. Hard to get around with the busses stopping before 5:30pm.

This was an amazing find, which I highly recommend. You get to travel around New Orleans on an open-topped double decker bus and see all the sights of this wonderful city, accompanied by a tour guide who fills you in on all the history. It was a great way to get your bearings when you first arrive.

I had time to take both walking tours available, the french quarter and the garden district Sparkles was my guide for the french quarter, we covered Jackson Square in detail and she really provided a launching point for further exploration, I recommend doing this soon after arrival in the city! Paige was my guide for the Garden District, she was so informative and helped us all get to our next destinatons withe great patience! AND her tour of celebrity homes was fun.
