A private car with an educated driver escorted us around NOLA neighborhoods showing us the cites and giving us quite a bit of history. We were fortunate to come upon a former church that happened to be open so we were able to enter. Same with a beautiful home in the Garden District. The driver was flexible and wanted to... More

Both of these tours are great - loved Laura Plantation and the air boat guides were local and informed and very responsive to questions and requests. That said, I have some reservations about the tour company. The bus driver picked us up from our hotel and seemed disorganized. She was multi-tasking with a phone and clipboard and zipping around the... More

Due to a very tight schedule, i booked a city tour followed by a swamp tour on the same day. Hotel pick-up was as scheduled and transfer from the city tour to the swamp tour was done flawlessly. On the return, we asked the driver to drop us off near the French Quarter instead of the hotel which was in... More

Although we booked this tour more than 3 weeks in advance on-line, the bus did not pick us up at the hotel by 9am as scheduled. After calling this company and waiting 15 minutes, they had the bus turn around and return to pick us up. When we finally entered the bus, the driver was obviously irritated and everyone glared...

A great city tour with extremely knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. Really enjoys his city and it's history. Chris made the tour very educational and informative. Have taken the city tour with other companies by far this was the best.

This was the best part of our trip...Captain Earnie was informative and very funny...we saw several Aligators and a baby that we were able to hold. I left feeling less afraid of these creatures and more in Aww. I can't say enough about this company and tour. The boats are comfortable and you wear protective gear on your ears and... More

The tour was really nice. The van that we took have big windows so the line of sight was very good. The gentleman that did the tour did a fabulous job and you could tell had inside knowledge about New Orleans. We considered the on and off to her, and had we been there for 3 days we may have...

We did the combo Laura Plantation and Barataria Swamp tour. It was a long day but WORTH it and a great bargain for the entire day of activity. Laura Plantation was amazing with history and a beautiful setting and scenery and the swamp tour was better than we imagined! Informative, beautiful, lots of wildlife and our boat captain was VERY...

Neighbourhood Profile
That sound? That flavor? That certain je ne sais quoi that lets you known you’re in “Nawlins” and nowhere else? It’s all good and in broad abundance on the streets of Tremé, where so much of what’s considered to be the very best of New Orleans culture and tradition is, put simply, just how people go about their daily lives in this historic part of town. As one of America’s oldest African-American neighborhoods and among the nation’s first established residential areas for free people of color, Tremé’s significant heritage and contribution cannot be understated. This is especially the case when considering some of Tremé’s most famous residents, most notably jazz great Louis Armstrong. For full flavored food, funky and jazzed up music, and vibrant street life presented with homegrown pride, you can’t beat a visit to Tremé.
