Very moving

about 1 year ago
This tour is extremely interesting and quite moving, especially if you remember the hurricane and its aftermath when it was happening. One of the best parts is that it allows a tourist to see parts of the city they probably would not otherwise. Our tour guide was Bruce Nolan, a former reporter for the Times-Picayune. He covered the hurricane and does an incredible job on this tour. He's a font of all kinds of information about the city and has many individual stories to relate about the hurricane. We did a lot of things during the five days we were in New Orleans, and this tour was by far the best.

Good tour

Would help if maps were shown so we would know where we were - passed many sites and along levees and different areas of the city. It was great to have a guide who was passionate about the story being told.

Our tour guide, Bruce, was excellent, who was a journalist at the time of Katrina for a New Orleans newspaper. This trip is well worth the price for over 3 hours of in depth history, compared to other tours in NOLA. Highly recommended.
