Wish I had chosen a different tour

The Driver Oz was rude and sarcastic to several of the tour attendees. The tour was okay. If you want more in-depth Katrina recovery details, this is not your tour. The van was a rough ride.
A great way to start your New Orleans vacation.

Our driver was absolutely terrific. It was a rainy day and we ended up being the only two on the tour. He took his time and explained everything about the City thoroughly. He took the time for us to take pictures of the Lake and showed us the canals that broke during Katrina. He explained the history of the City. Made the tour so interesting. I highly recommend this tour.
Great overview of New Orleans

A good overview of the city, French Quarter and beyond. We saw a lot in one day, learned a lot, and it really helped us get an idea of what we wanted to visit on our own during the rest of the week. Just wish there had been more than one stop.

Tour was terrific. It was so interesting to hear about the changes brought about by Katrina. And to hear and see key areas on NOLA and the history.
Great tour.

We had a wonderful tour of New Orleans and the surrounding area. Our guide, Wanda, was excellent and extremely knowledgeable about the past and present history of the area.

Excellent way to learn about New Orleans and get a feel for its history and architecture as well as insights into the causes of the flooding and impact of Hurricane Katrina. Teddy was very personable and professional. He is incredibly knowledgeable about his home town and took pride in relaying its history. He is a treasure for the city of New Orleans. We really enjoyed this tour and would highly recommend it.
Would definitely do again!!

Whether you've visited New Orleans before but never ventured far from the French Quarter, or this is your first time there, this tour is for you. While I usually like a walking tour, this van tour was excellent. We covered a lot of ground which you can't walking, and got into places that you can't in a big bus. We got to see the how different neighborhoods are are recovering differently from Katrina, and where they are shoring up the canals and levees. Also got a nice view of Lake Pontchartrain, drove through City Park and a cemetery. Our guide Oz was very knowledgeable on all things NOLA, and was happy to answer any questions we had. One couple we were with had visited New Orleans many times, but still learned some new things on this tour. Highly recommend.
Outstanding Tour
