New Orleans Hop-On, Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour
- Valid: 1 day
I cannot recommend this tour enough! A great START and first impression for our trip to NOLA. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and frequently gave tips on what to do and see during the rest of our trip. We stopped in St. Louis cemetery no.3, and in city park. There was a quick restroom break mid tour and a stop for coffee/snack at cafe du monde. One of the best city tours we’ve been on in any US city.
We were very impressed with the tour. The tour guide, Charlotte, had a wonderful personality and was very knowledgeable about New Orleans history. We learned first hand that there is more to NOLA than the French Quarter. I would suggest this tour on the first day of your stay because you will be introduced to the various neighborhoods which will give you ideas of where you want to go and see.
Be sure to purchase tickets online for early in morning to allow plenty of time. 3-D movie was fantastic! See that first if you can reserve. It fills up fast. We stayed 7 hours and felt rushed toward the end because we so enjoyed everything. I think you can an extra day cheaply. If we had time we would have done that. The personal stories are so fascinating!
We were a little late for the movie but with the help of a lovely usher we were able to make it to seats. The movement of the seats and the special effects made it very entertaining and informative.
Sean Bird was an excellent tour guide and his driver was very knowledgeable as well. He made learning about the various areas of New Orleans interesting! Thank you Sean Bird
