Hurricanes Katrina may have been over 10 years ago but the historical significance of the event is still relevant. Grey Line tours does an excellent job of providing an overview of the event, the city's levees and canals and the impact on the residents. The three hour tour takes you into areas of the city that the average tourist would... More

Took this tour with Gray Line Tours. It was very informative and gave you a whole new perspective for what these people went though. Our tour director John was very passionate about the plight of the people trying to recover and knew so much about what had gone on and why.

I truly appreciated the tour and the guide it just wasn't what I signed up for. The ad I read stated we would... More

New Orleans isn't the easiest place to drive around....or park...especially in the French Quarter. If you're visiting for a few days then return the car to the Airport Rental Area, catch an Airport Shuttle Bus back into town and take this terrific Bus tour to see all the best and most interesting parts of this great city....particularly the poignant 9th...

After going on the city tour, we felt this attraction was a necessity to understand the city. The tour took us to every site that was affected. The narrator was very informative and answered any and all questions concerning this city's tragic event. The tour swings by the new homes that Brad Pitt has help build. There is a rest... More
