All good, very easy to use. Clean. Air conditioner not working in one of the buses. Interesting to listen to tour guides but hard to hear/understand them. Speaking very fast.

Best way to see New Orleans
We bought the 2 day pass and very glad we did. The stops are clearly labled on the street so there is no confusion as to where to stand, there is also an app that you can download and see what time the next bus is coming to a specific spot. The first day we got The French Quarter tour with Allan who was great and very patient with my family (ranged in ages from 6 to 65 so not the quickest to keep up). He explained tons of the French Quarter in that hour. We did hop off and on at different spots that were highlighted on the route. The second day it was pouring rain and it was great to be able to ride the bus again as walking wasn't really the best option. Even though we had done the whole tour the day prior, because it was a different tour guide we learned different things. I wasn't able to do the walking tour of the Garden district because of the rain. Overall we enjoyed the tour very much, the only thing I would bring up would be that on Stop 4 it shows The Tomb of the Unknown Slave and St. Augustine's Church but when we walked there we found out that it had been closed to the public after Hurricane Ida and was not the safest area to be walking around lost. From there we walked to stop 5 which was past Armstrong Park which was beautiful but left very quickly when we several inappropriate situations began to rise next to us. It would have been very helpful to be told by the tour guide that we would not be able to go into the church and there was nothing much to see in that area but by all means it's not the guides fault of all the things we witnessed. Overall I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to see New Orleans beyond The French Quarter.

The HoHo bus did not disappoint us! We love to learn the local history and enjoy the convenience of not driving ourselves.

Hop on hop off New Orleans
I love taking these bus tours because I can learn about the city and many sites from the tour guides. One criticism I had was the directions from stop #12 to the Garden district walking tour. The bus guide said that guests should go one to two blocks down to meet the tour guide which is what I did. I walked blindly about three blocks and didn’t see anyone and walked back and called the 800# and they didn’t know what I was talking about. I made it back to stop#12 and there was a red tent that someone from Hop off was there with other tourists. I told them that the bus driver told me to go down two blocks, and he said he never heard that before. And Dave who was my tour guide didn’t want to hear anything else that I had learned on my previous days bus tour. He was very knowledgeable about the city but didn’t want to hear about my tourist problems. I was by myself and didn’t feel like getting lost in a strange and hot city. I just think there could have been mention of the red tent waiting area from the bus tour guide, making it convenient for new tourists. Thank you for your service.

I've been on many Hop on Hop off tours and find they give a good overview. This had too narrow an area. The whole loop was barely out of walking distance from our hotel. I know because I walked almost everywhere they went. A few stops listed only shopping as the attractions. They would have more interesting stops if they went a little further. The City Park with its sculpture garden, botanic garden, and art museum was only about 3 miles away, but it was not a stop. In addition, the guides didn't talk about attractions at each stop, which was unusual. We passed right by museums without a mention. We also passed one of the few Banksy murals in situ without a mention.

Best for ever!
My wife and I travel a lot and we always take the roundabout city tours to get the last of the land before deciding where we want to visit. Our New Orleans tour was the best one we've ever been on. Joel,our guide, was excellent. He was very knowledgeable and gave great insight to the history and interesting tidbits about the New Orleans. We highly will recommend to anyone that they should take this tour. -Michael Kidd

We waited at stops for 45 minutes at least,at one point we just gave up and walked employees were not that friendly but in general we did not find New Orleans that friendly unless we were waving money at them to sum it up we found the city dirty smelly and uninviting won't be coming back

Very nice Hop on Hop Off bus tour
We rode the bus three times. Each time the tour guide was different. In general they were entertaining, though one focused more on history while other on architecture, and third one on entertaining. Bus covers good ground. It was also convenient that they issued paper ticket ગ્રીન my online voucher in the bus itself, no need to go to the main office. Upstairs was partly covered with roof that helped against the hot sun, but downstairs the a/c could not keep up. Overall it was very enjoyable.

Sightseeing bus experience
We had such a hard time getting on the bus initially. They kept coming by full and made us wait 1.5 hrs outside until finally one picked us up. I was with both my kids (2 and 5) waiting in the heat with no water. Very bad experience.

Convenient way to discover NOLA
We were so happy to have this access so that we can ride around, then listen to the tour guide and then we can get off and explore but also back on to our hotel. Everyone will benefit from some part of it. The weather was cold but the staff rolls with the changes and has things in place for weather issues, we had the best time. When we go back for us or family, this will be a must.
