Jonathan was knowledgable, passionate and we had a great couple of hours. He tweaked the tour to meet our age group and interests. Of note the day before when there was some filming he texted us (it didn't come on our phone until later so we missed it). This personal touch however is in my view what makes this very... More

Great fun seeing where all the different movies were filmed. The tours combines visiting the sites where filming took place and then watching the movie scenes on video. Very entertaining and you get to see a good part of the city too.

My fiancé and I only had a short time in NOLA and I really wanted to do a tour. This tour was great as it started late morning and the start point was easy to find. This tour was unique: the tour guide, Jonathan has some experience in the TV/Movie industry; he shows clips from the movies that correspond with... More

We had a great time with Jonathon and the other members of our tour. Gave a unique and fun perspective not only on movie and television productions but also on seeing more of the city than just the typical tourist sites. Would do it again just to see if we could actually track down a working production on a different... More

Thank you for the great review and joining me! Next time you are in town just call me and I will send you somewhere to watch a production in action. It is a crap shoot essentially finding them. But next time I will help you out!! More

Jonathan, the owner and tour guide for the business, is an incredible human being. His knowledge of the movie industry is absolutely incredible. He has an interesting van setup where you get to see the movie playing at the same time that you pass by the set that it was filmed by. Coming in I didn't really understand that New... More

This tour was booked as the last day of our vacation in New Orleans. We were tired, hungover, and simply discouraged that this would be anything to put us in the 'wow zone.' Boy were we wrong! Not only was the tour jam-packed with interesting movie facts/trivia, our tour guide Jonathon was absolutley outstanding. Jonathon was accomodating to all of... More

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!

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.
