    Good tour but

    The ladies in the main office on Decatur street were not customer friendly. The lady tour guide and the bus driver were excellent. There were many drunk folks on the ride so the tour guide could not get them to shut up so we could hear. I took the tour early hoping to avoid jerks but they were out early.

    Fun tour

    The Hop On, Hop Off Tour was fun! We did have a little bit of difficulty finding the correct locations of the stops as viewing the map on my phone was difficult. We hopped on the bus at 4:00 so we didn't get to do the full tour. We learned a little bit about the city and went to places we wouldn't have picked or known about on our own. I would suggest doing this on the front end of your trip so you know what more you might want to discover while you are in NOLA.

    Learning about New Orleans

    I've been to New Orleans a few times but I had never taken a tour of the city. I would highly recommend this city tour as the guides gave complete and comprehensive overviews of the city. Thanks for a great experience!
