My husband and I (visitors from Canada) took Jonathan's tour on Wed., Dec. 7. We were his only customers that day so he very kindly gave us a hybrid tour, combining both of his regular tours. His great sense of humour, vast knowledge of movie lore, and entertaining personal anecdotes made this one of the best tours we've been on.... More

We had a great time on our tour with Johnathan. it was a rainy morning, but it didn't stop our guide from showing us around several film sights. He had a lot of knowledge regarding the many movies filmed in New Orleans, enjoyable tour!

This was an unexpected highlight of our trip to NO. We spotted the back of Nicole Kidder's head on the set. Loved the spot on movie clips and astute commentary. Thank so much.

Jonathan's tour was a lot of fun! His energy, enthusiasm and knowledge of the movie industry in New Orleans is terrific. The movie clips help bring the locations visited to life. We learned how to spot filming locations and he took us on the hunt for several active efforts in town. It paid off with a celebrity sighting, but even... More

Jonathan is so knowledgeable and asks the right questions to find out what you really want to see. He is personable, flexible and made this tour the best part of the trip. next time I am in nova, I will book the same trip and I know I will get different but memorable results.

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
