    Great way to see it all!

    Each guide was good at telling a little bit of history or tails of the area. The convenience of getting to see more than the French Quarter was great. We highly recommend purchasing the three day pass as that way you can take your time and not be overwhelmed with taking it all in in one day - especially with the heat & humidity! The two bonus walking tours are also very good!

    Tour guide very knowledgeable, and courteous.

    Great trip thru the city sites! Next time I would pay for two day trip, and do the trip earlier in the day, so I would be able to get off bus at various stops.
