    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.

    Great way to get around New Orleans

    Wish there were a few more stops -- closer to some events, museums, etc. One of the buses had steamed up windows and you could not see anything. Good value and a great way to get some history, restaurant suggestions, and general information about the city. If you are going to be in NOLA for at least 3 days, the Hop On/Off bus is for you.

    A great Hop on Hop Off Bus tour

    A very good vehicle, great announcers, comfortable and good sights from where you sit. A couple of good stops, included 2 really good free tours. Would use again. Makes stops at good locations. Our sixth trip to New Orleans and saw things we had not seen before.

    Great value

    We used the hop on hop off all three days. It was definitely worth it. All bus drivers and tour guides were so helpful, even when they were off duty. Booking through tripshock also saved us money.

    Awesome tour guide!

    We had a great time Thursday afternoon. I can't remember the tour guide's name, but do remember he had a ponytail. He was great! I've been on many tours, but this guy was by far the most spectacular guide ever! Also, kudos to the driver. Maneuvering that bus around the streets of New Orleans cannot be easy.

    Could use improvement

    The tour was entertaining, but the guide made a lot of snide remarks about politics. Most of the stop numbers were not announced, and many were skipped, so I had to get off at a different one than I planned
