Exactly as described. Hop on and hop off barrated bus tour of New Oreleans. It was informative. It was a child day so the upper deck was chilly but it was warm in the lower deck.

Today we took the Garden District Walking tour with Clarence. He was a great guide with a lot of information. We enjoyed him pointing out the different types of architecture & styles as well as the stories and history that came along with the tour. It made our visit to New Orleans that much more enjoyable!

First tour guide was great. Second was okay. At one point we had to wait for almost 30 minutes for next bus to come around. Driver was very safe. Unfortunately, it was too cold to enjoy upper desk of bus and there were limited seats below. Lucky, we were always able to get seats below where others were not.

I take the Red Bus in every city bc it hells me get my bearings. I get to see the highlights so I can decide where I want to spend my limited time. I have used RB in many many cities and the value is usually worth the expense. Not in NOLA. This is overpriced for what there is to see. That said the trip was good. Our narrator was awesome.

We truly enjoyed this double-decker bus tour of New Orleans!!! There were a number of stops, allowing us to see many different sites and to easily get on/off the bus and around the City. We were lucky to have Zelda as our Tour Guide and I want to tell you ... she was AWESOME! Zelda had a lot of GREAT information, history and tidbits about New Orleans and was VERY amusing in her presentation to the group ......
Our driver, Israel, took care of us, navigating the traffic expertly and getting us back to our drop-off spot safely. Buy tickets for this tour, you won't regret it. If you get Zelda as your guide, it'll just be an even better experience for you and yours!

This is a good trip to take when you first arrive - allows you to familiarize yourself with the city and see what you want to do during your visit.
The driver was really friendly when we boarded.
The guide (Jonathan I think) was great - loads of information and well delivered, very humerous. Its nice to have a live guide, lots of tours such as this give you poor earphones and you listen to a pre - recorded spiel so this was nicely delivered.

We decided not to get off the bus at all as at most stops, there was quite a queue and not enough seats for everyone. I believe the folks had to wait 20 minutes for the next bus to come along and we didn't fancy this as it was a hot day.

There were quite a lot of empty water bottles rolling around the floor but this is the fault of passengers, not the bus company.

Just one crticism, it is not clear where to get the bus. We did quite a bit of wandering up and down Canal before we saw the sign.

I was lucky to have this experience on possibly one of NOLA's craziest days - New Years Eve 2021, the route was shortened a bit because of a parade and, our host Linda and driver Elroy were top-rack professional, kind, and present for all of us.
I especially appreciated Linda's humor and attention to each guest as if they were each a VIP. I loved hearing stories about this great city and I'm so glad I opted for this excursion during my short stay in town. I especially loved the dining tips and I loved having a great breakfast at Ruby Slipper in the Garden District, off the beaten path!
Since the last real tour stop was close to my hotel, I hopped off and was walking "home" as Elroy pulled up at a stoplight and asked me if I was sure I didn't want a ride?! I opted out but was very touched that he was that kind and generous.
Thank you for this great experience. I love New Orleans and this gave me a great opportunity to be part of some of its highlights. Happy New Year to everyone at this Tour!!
