Was disappointed. Did not sign up to hear about Hurricane Katrina and the damage it caused. While I sympathize with it's victims, I did not enjoy hearing about it or seeing the results of it especially when we were very close to seeing the new destruction by Hurricane Ida. We made 2 stops, for 10 mins only, at a cemetery and a beignet place. At the cemetery we were told not to go too far away as we would be leaving and he didn't want to forget anyone. Rushed at the beignet place also. Did not see the areas well that we were told we would see. I would not recommend this tour as it was more like a bus ride than a tour. As a matter of fact, we saw more on a bus ride that we did on this actual tour.

The VIP TOUR with Christopher as our guide was awesome!! He explained the cities history in a fun and informative way. The cemetery walk through was cool and he was such a pleasant person. Your food was indescribable it was so good!! I was only here a weekend but definitely want to come back to visit your wonderful city🥰 the only down side was our accommodation 😔 we were scammed and stayed at the rue parc Fontaine apartments that was advertised as a condo with amenities that didn’t exist. The person waited to tell us days before our departure that the pool couldn’t be used due to construction but when looking at the green algae saturated water and the over grown grass through the pool cement and poor conditions it was clearly unattended for quite some time. Also we weren’t able to enjoy the night life because we were fearful about staying out after dark and returning to the apartment complex. There were many abandoned apartments not secured, the complex was completely dark and not well lit as was the open hallways that was littered with garbage and smelled of urine. So our accommodations were very misleading and made our stay not optimal. Next time when I visit this beautiful city with it’s beautiful friendly people we will stay at one of your gorgeous hotels on Canal St
Love the culture!

The driver was informative and entertaining. Jarrett (driver) was a native NOLA who shared his love for the city with his passengers. This was an enjoyable experience.

Justin is an amazing tour guide. He makes the adventure worth going on. We loved it and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Great overview of the city
, May 2021
It was pouring rain the day of our tour so we weren’t sure about it. Luckily we were picked up at our hotel by Justin and there were only 10 people on our bus. It was easy to space out, and the views from the windows were unobstructed. Justin was knowledgeable and funny. We enjoyed learning about the history of New Orleans and visiting all the sites. The catholic cemetery was super interesting and it stopped raining long enough for us to get out and walk around. Ditto for city park, a beautiful place we we like to go back to. Thanks for a great experience!

My wife and 2 teenage children really enjoyed the tour, and our tour guide Justin was amazing. He obviously loved his city, and had deep knowledge. We learned a great deal about the history of New Orleans. Justin was also incredibly funny, so that was an huge added bonus. Would highly recommend this tour, it’s absolutely worth the value. Thank you again Justin for giving my family such an amazing experience.
