The bus tour was pretty good except for Steven...he was awesome! Made everything fun, more interesting, and more understandable than some of the other guides. Did the week tour which included 2 guided tours and was thrilled to get Steven for the Garden District tour. Had Holly for the French Quarter tour and although she was loaded with valuable information, she could have been a little more pleasant. One problem we encountered was around the third day, we couldn't take the heat anymore and chose to sit in the lower a/c section but could not hear the guide talking over the speakers. We were told the speakers were not working, and then the next day, was the same...not happy about that. It still was a great way to get around the city to many of the main sites and pick up some info along the way.

The hop on -hop off tour was very informative, but a little pricey, got a chance to see some scenery that i would not have seen, had i been driving myself, but i think still a little pricey

I initially booked the tour on a Friday, when I meant to book it for a Saturday, however, it was taken care of right away for me which I really appreciated. Rode the Hop On Hop Off tour with the tour guide Randy who was great! He gave us little tidbits of knowledge at each location and throughout the city that we share with people we tell our trip about. Convenient for people who are new to the city and want to know where everything is right away. Didn't have issues with waiting over 25 minutes for a bus to come. Rode it all day on a Saturday and took our time with the stops we wanted to get off at. Overall, definitely feel like I got my money's worth and would recommend others to try if they are new to the city as well!

We use the city tour as a way to familiarize ourselves with the city and learn the history. We went to a different attraction each day instead of trying to do everything in one day. Buses came every 30 minutes. Each guide gave information about the city. If you are going to ride on top and stay on the bus for awhile you may want to use sunscreen. The complete tour last about 2 hours if you do not hop off at any stop.

Nice tour guide. It was a shame they shut down at 5:30pm. Enjoyed learning about New Orleans and the various historic facts. It was a nice way to spend a few hours
