Even though I'm a native of New Orleans, I always say that there's always something I haven't done before. This movie tour is one of them. Our tour guide was very informative. He gave us a great introduction to the short video clip of each location stop. We also passed by many celebrity homes that we had only heard about. All said, we enjoyed our tour and would recommend it to those who want to see where in New Orleans a movie scene was filmed. By the way....the popcorn and cold water was a nice treat.

The tour guide/ owner Jonathan was great. It is just a terrific concept and idea for this area. It's just plain different from all of the other attractions. I'm not even that big of a movie buff and I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. We were even running a bit late and Jonathan called my cell to ask about me. Since you have to pre pay for the tickets he could have easily just left and kept my money. Make it a point to go to this. He makes the tour PG so it's appropriate for all audiences. Just book it!

Jonathan made this tour special. We are from Southern California and thought we knew everything about movies. He was able to make us feel like we were part of the movies that were filmed in New Orleans, and there are many.

He made it fun with his movie clips and narrations. There are so many movies filmed there he couldn't do them all so when we come back, we will defintely take this tour again. Clearly he is a film lover and even if you are lukewarm about movies, he will change you into a film lover with his enthusiam and clips.

As an added bonus, he takes you all through New Orleans from the French Quarter to the Garden District so you get a good feel for the local area of New Orleans.

First of all, Jonathan is fantastic. Not only does he have a passion for the movie industry but he has put together a great, informative tour that gives you a sense of the importance of New Orleans as a film making capital as well as detailed information on many of the films that have been filmed and are currently being filmed in New Orleans. In and out of traffic you wind, and then suddenly stop and the movie screen in front of your seat comes on and you're right where the movie was filmed actually experiencing the whole scene.
It's fantastic and you have a front row seat. We also actually saw a movie scene being shot.
Mid --way through the tour there is a rest stop and then it's back on the bus with popcorn and water provided.
