Hop On and Hop Off Bus Tour in New Orleans.

Hop on and hop off sightseeing bus was very informative. Bus stops were convenient for us . Tour guides were very knowledgeable and answered our questions. We rode downstairs, not on top in the outdoors, because it was cool outside. The two provided walking tours available with the three day pass were excellent.

Totally recommend this tour. We so enjoyed all the tours that we were give. Paige was not only so informative - but kept us so entertained with her stories when we walked through the garden section. Sparkles was way to cute in the French Quarters. She did an amazing job! I believe it was Hope? in the Cemetery tour - She was so well informed with the tour - and it was wonderful. Each tour guide that we had on the buses were amazing - had their own twist and knowledge of the city.............. The stops were easy to find, and everything went so smooth.

Disappointing

I am all about seeing city sights and Hop on Hop off tours normally fit the bill. This time I was disappointed in the NOLA Hop on Hop off. The buses are plentiful and you don’t wait long for one to come along. This hit all the important city neighborhoods and sights. The one single thing that fell short...our docent to start was wonderful and informative for the 1st 5 stops and then she went off her shift and another came on for the next 14 stops. This woman was very friendly but her narrative left much to be desired, stopping in the middle of sentences and losing her train of thought. This probably doesn’t happen on all of the tours but certainly impacted our experience.

The bus was an amazing way to see a lot of new orleans and the tour guides on all the buses we were on were knowledgable about the city and history behind it! We learned so much that we would have never known if we hadnt done this bus tour! the extra added guided tours when you purchase the three day pass were a nice and much appreciated bonus :)

Great bus ride! We were able to see parts of the city we wouldn’t have, and learned lots of history we didn’t know. Easy to get off and explore and then get back on at whatever stop you want. Highly recommend!
