    Slightly Disappointed

    Unfortunately it rained during our tour which made it especially difficult to enjoy the sights. We could have looked past that if the tour guide did not ramble about "fake news" and the price of hotel rooms in the city instead of actually giving us information on the history of the city.

    Great concept but...

    I've enjoyed many tours similar to this one however, the "rules" weren't real clear for this one. At the end of the day we were taken to stop 5 & told that was the last stop of the day. We were told differently on the phone. They did make it right by taking us where we needed to go. Also, we felt that some of the stops shouldn't even be listed as stops. Stops 6 & 7 could be combined. Not the best deal for your money!

    New Orleans District Tours

    It was a good experience if you want to stop at multiple places. Don't expect to see everything in 1 day. Plan your stops and walking tours. It can take a long time to get from the quarter to the Mardi Gras Museum. We could have done better planning.
