    Easy On, Easy Off

    One on the bus, the drivers & the guides were great. A constant stream of information with a sense of NOLA humor.

    New Orleans Hop On Hop Off

    This was a great Hop On Hop Off experience. The commentators were entertaining and the Garden Tour was GREAT. Charles (the guide) was very knowledgeable and had a presentation that kept you chuckling while learning a lot about the mansions. I think Hop On Hop Off Tours are the ONLY way to see the cities.

    Tour guide talked more about the bus driver than city.

    We got very few historical or architectural details that I've heard on other city tours. Minimally talked about Katrina. Not much else. Disappointing. The saving grace was we also took the cemetery tour. That guide was fantastic!

    Issue with "double" debit resolved by excellent customer serv

    Great deal(with extra walking tours as we purchased the 3-day ticket). Due to issues at "our" end, debit taken twice but quickly resolved following email to Tripshock Customer Services.

    In most cities, I use hop on hop off to learn about the city. The 3 day option allowed us to ride the full tour and then hop on and hop off at various stops! It was amazing and we enjoyed. Whileive visited New Orleans before... this tour definitely answered lot of questions. I highly recommend!
