    Very entertaining

    It’s a good tour if you want to see many things in a short amount of time, but 4 of the stops were closed due to construction. Our guide was very good, very entertaining. I would recommend running more often because there aren’t many seats on the bus.

    The ride wasw exactly what I expected but with one major problem

    I took part of the excursion during my stay in New Orleans last week. The hop on/off bus tour as very informative. The only complaint I have is that people tend to get very loud with their talking and it is difficult if not impossible to hear the tour guide. She asked people to respect the others and keep the noise level down at least 3 times. However, it only worked for about a minute each time. Consequently, I missed out on a lot of historical information

    Hi Don, I'm sorry to hear that others made your experience less than pleasant. I know that the guides do their best, but there are those few who can ruin it for others. We have notified the vendor of your feedback so they can address this further with their guides. Thanks for booking with us and taking the time to comment on your experience. Hope to see you again next time! TripShock Guest Service Manager

    Could be better

    It was a very busy time for the buses as a lot of people found they couldn't get on, also it was a shame they are not allowed to do stops 12,13 and 14 so you miss the garden district and then if you want to do the self walking tour of the cemetery it is a lot further to walk. In all it was a good experience.

    C

    The tour guide was good, but waited a long time for bus, longer than 30 minutes and 530 is way too early to shut down. Would not reccomend as the cost was high for the return value.

    Tour in New Orleans

    I found this tour to be very interesting. I should have done this on the first day rather than last day of visiting. I need to come back and visit some areas that I didn’t get to see this first time around.

    Great way to see the city

    We took it on day 2 so we could see the city and then decide on things to do and it helped out a lot. We got a good scope of the city and saw things we decided to go back to. The tour guide was great and funny and had great tips.
