Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It was an experience. Would I do it again, no. Food was good, staff was friendly and hustled. Just not worth the money to me.

    This tour from beginning to end was amazing. We got picked up from our hotel promptly. It was nice not arranging travel as it was included in our ticket. Captain Jason was ther best! He was funny and knowledgeable about the ecosystem of the swamp, marshes, and Bayou and had fun interesting facts to share. We also saw lots of gators and he also had a cool surprise. My teenager thorougly enjoyed this tour. If yours trying to decide which tour. Book this one!

    Our family was immediately impressed by our driver Tyrone and guide, Linda. From our first to last interactions with both of them we felt like we were catching a ride with friends. Linda’s advice and insight along the tour was very helpful and one of my kids wants to find Linda to continue the bus tour after we eat at a place recommended by Linda.:)

    James was amazing. I was very appreciative that he did not cancel the tour since I was the only one there. It really felt like a tour just made for me. He is so knowledgeable about the history and architecture of the Garden District. Answered all questions, AND introduced me to John Goodman. Can't really get better than that.

    Had a great time with Craig our tour guide. We tried great cocktails and yummy food. My favorite stop was Cane & Table. So much fun and learned some great information about the French Quarter along the way. Go DK Krewe.

    Great way to see the city but was often crowded. A few times we had to wait for the next bus due to the lack of seating available.

    Assume adventure. Tour guide was excellent. We took the covered boat ride so the tour guide was able to talk with us about the history of the area and answer our questions.
