The Best 3 Hours You'll Spend
Sep 2021
The entire process from making a reservation, being picked up, and getting on the tour was seamless. Our guide Andy was fantastic - this was my 7th trip to Nola, but I was with others who had never been. I saw things and learned stuff that I hadn't in the previous 6 trips! The only thing I could say is for Andy to take a breath - there's a lot to get through so he was talking super quick, but I appreciate his eagerness to pack it all in. The 3 hour tour flew by!

The tour was wonderful and Gary is an amazing tour guide. His knowledge of the area, even seemingly small details, made our time well worth what we paid. He was able to answer every question asked by everyone on the tour. I highly recommend it!

Aug 2021
It was SCORCHING hot & humid outside & we were unable to do our planned self guided walking tours, so we booked this last minute based on other Trip Advisor reviews. Our tour guide, Gary, was the best. He was knowledgeable and took us to so many places I never even knew about. I ,love that it wasn't a scripted tour or route. We went to all of the major spots, but Gary also took us through neighborhoods recovering from Katrina. His stories were heartfelt & interesting. I definitely recommend the Cafe du Monde in the park that we stropped at for a break over the one in Jackson Square. The hotel pick up & drop off was a nice touch.

Excellent driver/rude customers

An excellent tour. Our guide and driver did a fantastic job. He put up with a group of people who were more concerned about getting flights to escape the hurricane than respecting the others who were on the tour and the guide/driver.

Gary, the best tour guide for Southern Shuttles
Aug 2021 • Business
Gary, Gary, Gary what can I say!!!! Gary was funny, knowledgeable and a great guide. This was a great tour to see all key points of interest and some hidden gems of NOLA. I would highly recommend, and even see if you can get Gary as your guide. The tour took you through all the districts and wards. Gary saved this review because my initial phone conversation into the company wasn't so great, not even good. The girl that answered the phone, I had to explain the "problem" to twice and then she placed me on a brief hold, came back and still - no help. Then a guy got on the phone, a true jerk and very very unprofessional and customer service, down the toilet....but Gary more than made up for the customer service professionalism or lack thereof. Because of Gary, I'm giving them a 4 rating.....Gary's rating is a "10", company's phone customer service rating "-3".......
Gary, thank you so very much for a great tour!!!!

Great, educational.
Aug 2021 • Friends
Fantastic. Tour guide (Gary) was amazing. Clearly knowledgeable about the city and was thorough and fun with his recollection of facts and stories about the city. It was wonderful to have such an in-depth tour of the city and the wards outside the city as well. Bus was comfortable and stoped at a few keys spots (bar, cemetery rest stop). Worth every cent.

An emmersive experience.
Aug 2021
Sadly we booked this tour on our last full day in New Orleans. I wish we had booked this tour first day, as we learned so much about the city and some of the cool things it has to offer. Our guide was Gary and he was wonderful. The first half of the tour focused mostly around New Orleans, it's history, its geography, it's major attractions. Gary made frequent stops for bathroom breaks and refreshments. The second half of the tour focused on Katrina, how it happened and the impact on the different areas in NO. So powerful to hear the story from a native of NO who lived here at the time, his personal experience, and what things were like during and after Katrina.

Just an over all great experience. Gary is a wonderful Tour guide and Southern style tours was money well spent. Highly recommend.
