This was amazing. My boyfriend and I (both 21 years old) took this trip on our first day in New Orleans. It was incredible to hear the history and to get to see the city before we spent much time in it. Our tour guide/historian was Charles, who was absolutely amazing! Do yourself a favor and spend the money on it, we loved it.

The boat and tour were excellent. The only drawback was that our disabled daughter had some problems accessing the boat. Once the staff was aware of the situation they were very helpful. Overall it was very enjoyable.
