My wife pressed me to do this tour but I resisted in part because it was to last for 3+ hours and I felt badly about gawking at the city's tragic sights. How glad I am that she prevailed because the tour guide, Daniel, was...More

What a great reveiw! You brought out the very reason we started the tour and why it continues. It is not just "what was destroyed" but what led up to it, the reasons or rejections for evacuating, the aftermath and the rebirth of our city.
Jo Anne, our guide, was so knowledgeable and interesting to listen to. We loved the fact that she had lived in New Orleans her whole life and was able to give us the inside scoop on life before and after the hurricane. This tour is...More
This was a devastating time in New Orleans, It was a tour I really wanted to do and thought I was lucky getting room on the tour. This tour should be stopped now it's $50 each and to be honest it is a huge amount...More

Maria, it is amazing to us that people are still interested in not only the devastation but the rebuilding as well. The narrative explaining the impact before, during and after such a disaster can be eye-opening, We place in our brochures the details and stops...More
Depending on the Guide this tour can be excellent or dull. I read reviews pre & post tour and in hindsight I wish I would have specifically requested Bruce Nolan. Our guide was Liz and our group was small. She passed around outdated binders and...More
This tour was not like our last at all. We got to spend more time at Lake Pontchartrain which I really enjoyed as we got to up to the top of the light house. We toured more of New Orleans and really did not see...More
My husband and I took the Grey Line tour and Bruce Nolan was our guide. Bruce is a retired newspaper reported who covered the hurricane back in 2005 and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. This tour went WAY BEYOND our expectations and...More

We will be glad to let Bruce know the great review you shared on his tour. Bruce knows it and he "feels" it. Thank You!
Our tour guide was Bruce and he was awesome. It's one thing to just have a tour guide its another thing to have a tour guide that actually lived it because it brings a very real perceptive on Katrina. The tour was very informative I...More

When a guest enjoys the tour and appreciates the tour guide's personal information it makes for a wonderful experience for both.
Thank you !
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
