This hop-on hop-off tour includes all of New Orleans’ most important highlights and landmarks.

What to Expect
Choose a 1- or 3-day ticket and head to any one of the 18 stops to board the open-top, double-decker bus.

Listen to guide commentary as you pass New Orleans’ most important sights. Hop off to explore stops that interest you, spending as much time as you like at each place. Alternatively, stay on the bus for the entire loop.

Learn about New Orleans’ rich history, its architectural diversity, and the vibrancy of its present-day ‘cultural gumbo.’ Explore the museums and shops along Canal Street, check out Jackson Square, or stroll through the French Market.

A guided walking tour of the French Quarter and the Garden District are both included and leave at regularly scheduled intervals (no reservations required). You can also take a self-guided tour of Lafayette Cemetery.
