Great way to get a feel for the city and learn some history along the way. Big shout out to bus guides/drivers Linda & Courtney and Zelda & her driver (sorry, I can't remember her name!). They are top notch...very personable and lots of fun! We also went on the walking tours. Alan, our guide for the Garden District tour was very knowledgeable and answered all the questions from our group and showed us some beautiful historic buildings. Mary was our guide for the walking tour of the French Quarter, and as it ended up just being our group of 4, she was able to stop and let us hang in the shade and give us a very thorough history of the area and some of its buildings, politics, and people. What a fountain of knowledge!

Enjoyed our site seeing tour repeatedly. Each guide offered a few different tidbits about the areas we passed. The guides and drivers were all very friendly and helpful.

It was awesome! The staff was polite and informative as possible. I definitely recommend
