    Excellent

    The Hip on Hop off tours are good but when I first started purchasing these tours they have you more background on the area. Now it is more about the narrator then the city.

    The tour guide was good, but waited a long time for bus, longer than 30 minutes and 530 is way too early to shut down. Would not reccomend as the cost was high for the return value.

  • Sonya USA about 1 year ago

    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!

    Decent

    I had a fractured foot in recovery and this helped getting around. Normally I wouldn't do it though. But it did give me a pretty general overview of the downtown area and it's near neighborhoods. If you just want to get around use the street cars. If yo want to learn about the neighborhoods take a walking tour or buy a book or tour guide.

    Pros and Cons

    Pros - great way to see the city, tour guides friendly, free walking tours included in the price & discounted tickets for other attractions on the route Cons - long waits at the stops, buses rarely on the 1/2 hour schedule, buses get very crowded, one bus driver was rude/curt when some people tried to enter the bus, could not get on or off stop #1, some stops seemed obsolete Overall, a nice way to see the city and explore areas.

    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

    Pretty good...IF you can be flexible!

    Got the 3 day pass and used it daily. I did enjoy learning new things from the different tour guides each day. The first time, I sat on top of the bus, never got off and took all my pictures during the entire 2 hour tour. After that, I really appreciated sitting in the lower bus with air conditioning as it was incredibly humid during my visit. A few things to pass on... ... read more
