    It had its positive aspects.

    It was what it promised to be. It offered a relatively convenient form of transportation around the city. The buses ran on time pretty much. The caliber of the commentators on the busses were varied. As was to be expected, some were better than others. It was nice that 2 tours were included with the 3 day pass. The French Quarter tour made me feel like I was back in History class, but the Garden Tour was better. The tour guide was more charismatic and interesting. All in all it was a pretty good service. By the way, 3 of the stops were out of commission, but we didn't find this out until we had paid in full and redeemed our vouchers.

    Hi Pauline, Thanks for booking with us and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the experience overall! The 3 day pass is definitely the best option and a great way to get around the city. The tours are a really nice addition, so I'm glad you were able to experience them. We actually do have the route closures on the listing in bold so that our customers are aware before booking online. I'm sorry that you missed that part but I hope it wasn't too much of an inconvenience. Thank you again for booking with us and we hope to see you again! TripShock! Guest Service Manager

    Wonderful Experience

    Absolutely loved the double decker bus! It did rain the day we went but the roof top has a cover I’ve over so it wasn’t bad.

  • Sheri USA about 1 month ago

    Great, we used the 3 days pass.

    I would recommend the three day pass. For $10 more you get 2 more days and 3 tours - which are not included in the one day. In the heat of the day we stopped at the Mardi Gra float expo and the next day the fabulous WWII Museum. (Hop on Hop off had discount coupons for both on the bus and stops at both places.) . Great walking guide in the French Quarter (Charles). The ease of the Hop on Hop off really made our trip enjoyable and easy.

  • Jordan Charboneau USA about 1 month ago

    Fine...

    I was a ding dong and got the three day pass, it’s fine for one day to kind of figure out the history and where you want to go, but the loop is 2 hours so it will take you all day to get back to where you started and you waste valuable trip time (at least for me) so I used Lyft the rest of the time.
