A good intro to NOLA
Since we haven’t been to New Orleans, this was a great tour to take as an introduction to the sights of New Orleans. Oz, a NOLA native, was knowledgeable and pleasant. There were only 6 of us in the van so it was fun and we weren’t cramped. We were even allowed to bring our Yorkie in his carrier since he was traveling with us. We would recommend this reasonably priced tour.

This tour was fabulous! Teddy was very friendly and so knowledgeable about the city’s history and current items of interest. He picked us up and dropped us off at our Airbnb, and it was really nice to be part of a smaller group. This was a highlight of our trip! Highly recommended!

Everything you wanted to know about New Orleans!
Jun 2021 • Couples
Thank You Teddy!! We very much enjoyed our time with you as you showed us around New Orleans. We toured Bourbon Street, Jackson square,Treme, The garden district, a cemetary, citypark and even stopped at Cafe du monde for beignets!!!. All from the comfort of an airconditioned van accompanied by a fact filled narrative of the city from a history buff and local who knows the city well!!. Thanks so much for the dinner recommendations!!! Definetly a great tour if you want to know the history of New Orleans, the behind the scenes information of Hurricaine Katrina and the famous characters of New Orleans that made the city what it is.

Hidden History of New Orleans
Great tour of City and Lake Pontchartrain. Terry, our guide, is extremely knowledgeable of the history of New Orleans dating back to the Civil War. Very impressed with his knowledge of different architecture, colors, and immigrant influence on churches, schools, and music. Highly recommend Celebration Tours and Terry.
