Dynamic Duo
Oct 2021
We rode with Linda as the guide and Roxie driving the bus. Both did an excellent job. Roxie navigated the route expertly and very smoothly. Linda has a very good knowledge of NOLA and shared it with us with flair. No dull moments. Recommend this duo to everyone. The hop on/hop off feature is nice. We used it and just happened to be with the duo a couple of times. Jack & Dorothy Oct. 2021

Great way to see NOLA, plus a hidden gem tour guide
Jul 2021 • Couples
We bought a two-day pass and loved being able to get on and off the bus whenever we wanted. We would recommend taking a full loop, maybe two, around the whole bus tour to see the different areas of New Orleans before deciding where to walk around for a bit. The last bus starts to make its round at 4pm, so you have to plan accordingly to be at a stop sometime close to that if you plan on riding the bus back closer to where you're staying.
Our two-day pass came with the guided tour in the Garden District, which we made use of. We took the last tour for the day and it was just my wife and I, plus our awesome guide, Buddy. Buddy was energetic and full of information about the different stops along the tour. We would definitely recommend the walking tour, especially if he his your tour guide. But I can't stop there at how amazing Buddy was. When our tour ended, he made sure a bus was still coming to pick us up and take us back to the stop we wanted. We boarded the bus and it shortly began raining. Then on our ride, it was announced we would have to exit the bus at a stop coming up and walk to another stop to get on another bus to get to where we wanted, all while it was raining out. As my wife and I were walking to the next stop, a car started honking at us and it was Buddy. He told us to get in so he could personally drive us back to our hotel. He said he heard over the radio about us having to change busses and didn't want us to deal with that. Needless to say, we were very appreciative of him to find us amongst the New Orleans crowd and personally drive us back to our hotel. Not only did it save us from being out in the rain, but it also saved us about 45 minutes of waiting for the next bus and making stops along its route.
Buddy, if you read this, thank you again so much for your generosity! We hope you and everyone else are doing well.

CHRIS IS A ROCKSTAR!!!
Aug 2021
Chris and George were amazing! CHRIS made our trip amazing! He was knowledgeable and gave great suggestions on things to do in and around New Orleans. He made our experience on the bus great by giving us all the stories of New Orleans in the most passionate and funny way! He took time to not only tell the stories but his relatable experiences as well as great recommendations! He is the only reason we came back for day two! Thank you Chris!!!! You ROCK!

Great experience on City Sightseeing New Orleans Hop-On Hop-Off double-decker bus tour. We had 3 tour guides. This would have been 5 stars if we had gotten Christopher as our tour guide every time! He was the best! We had him twice and he made the City Sightseeing New Orleans Hop-On Hop-Off double-decker bus tour worth it! Thanks Chris!

Excellent Experience
Awesome experience! I learned so much on the tour and it was made even better by our fantastic guide, Chris! He was hysterical and added tidbits from his perspective as a local that were the perfect additions to the information. Ellroy, our driver, deserves a shoutout, too! They were a great duo.

Great tour!
This tour should definitely be on your “to-do” list, whilst visiting NOLA! Our tour guide, Linda, was awesome! She was so knowledgeable and personable! This was the most laid-back tour, ever! So much so, we stayed on for two full rides. There’s quite a few stops, plenty of enjoyable history lessons and nice views! Just like the name says, you hop on and hop off. Don’t think about booking this tour, do it! You won’t regret it!
