What to Expect

If you plan it right, you can get by with a one day tour. I recommend staying on the bus as long as possible for an overview of NOLA districts. As a word of caution, there are some periods where there is not much to see or be said. There is not much to see in the business

I've always found the hop-on-hop-off tours of any city to be worthwhile, but New Orleans is the first place I've ever seen that offered a 3-day unlimited ticket. What a treasure! We decided the first day to ride most of the complete loop and figure out where we wanted to go
