They pick you up at your hotel. Traffic was bad so they were running a little late which was no big deal. Lots of interesting information. Stop at city park for coffee, beignets. We also stopped at one of the cemeteries to view the tombs....More

I gave a 4-star because the driver provided a lot of good info. However, very misleading that the operator advertises an air conditioned bus when no cool air reaches the back 2/3rds of the bus. If I were to do it again, I would book...More

We don't worry much about time on vacation. So although we had been picked up late - we somewhat expected it as we are in New Orleans - where I believe 'Hawaiian Time' was first invented. But once everyone was collected - the tour was...More

Horrible customer service. We only booked through Southern Style Tours because they offered air conditioned buses. We were picked up and immediately noticed that the heat on the bus was unbearable. The windows did not open and there wasn't any air circulating. It was 98...More

Cons: 1. Every seat was occupied, which made it a very full bus. 2. The air conditioner did not cool the entire bus. The last four rows were extremely uncomfortable. 3. The driver was rude when asked if he would be able to accommodate the...More

Good tour of the area. After all of the hotel stops for riders, the tour began at Jackson Square with a story about the Mississippi River. The tour guide then received a phone call from the office telling him he missed some riders, after picking...More

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

We didn't stay in the city either. When you contact them, they will give you the locations that they pick up at and you can meet them at any of those locations. The driver is great. If you are not on that bus, when you are... More
