A remarkable and remarkable tour. My husband booked this tour two months ago and we were very excited for this. The tour was great and well managed. We started our day in the morning and buses were always on time. Credit goes to our tour guide who was very knowledgeable and showed the different place in the best way. He was explaining the history in a very interesting way. At the end of the tour, we learned so much about New Orleans. Book hotels were simple but decent. Still missing the time spent at the Mississippi River.

My cousin and I enjoyed this trip together. We loved the accommodation and food. Amazing experience of group meal. Different tastes and good hygiene along with lovely people added beauty to the amazing destinations. I was happy with all things of this trip and I found it really comfortable on as well. All age groups can have an amazing time during this trip so I must say don’t miss the chance. I enjoyed World War II Museum and steamboat ride on the Mississippi River side. Go and grab the beauty of this and enjoy good companies and destinations. Thanks a lot.

I enjoyed destinations, but missed my food. Vegan food was not available. I believe it must be mentioned that what variety of food would be available during this trip so that travelers can manage their preferences. The rest of the trip was a good and accommodating experience for me and my brother. He is also a vegetarian and was a bit worried in not finding its option. I found it a good way of experiencing, many people of different cultures. Copartners in the bus were so friendly and good interaction appeared amongst all travelers of the bus. City tour of New Orleans was a fun. 4 stars to improve food variety of this trip. Thanks
