I was excited about the beautiful destinations of New Orleans and I planned this memorable trip along with my husband. Picking up this tour was a good experience for me and my husband. I was having a problem with my seat as I did not find it comfortable. I must say that our tour guide was so supportive and he helped me in changing my seat. Thanks a lot John for your sweet gesture, you are a gentleman. My husband's seat was also adjusted to me; so, for this double thanks to my tour guide. I enjoyed visits to the Mississippi Riverside and Harrah's experience was also fun. I also enjoyed the shopping experience of Riverside Outlets. Good accommodation services were appreciated by my husband. We simply enjoyed it as a very good trip and had fun.

I titled this trip in my travel diaries as #life changing. The reason is very simple, “excellent management”. I admire good destination and good guidance because guidance really helps you in knowing many new places and their facts. The same happened on this trip where guidance has been just incredible. The New Orleans City Tour was a fun and I enjoyed visiting the French Quarter, St. Louis Cathedral and Oak Alley Plantation a lot. I was timely picked and dropped from all destinations of this tour. My friend who was with me on this trip also appreciated good guidance. Love from him and 5 stars from me. We have planned for some more destinations with this bus tour.

  I enjoyed this trip. I found it a good way to know about not only destinations, but also about other people from all over the world. The guide was a nice lady of good nature. Guiding and smiling added energy to the trip. I never felt for a second that I am new here because surrounding was so friendly and supportive and this I enjoyed the most. New Orleans is entirely a fun. Visit to WWII museum and Oak Alley Plantation was the most inspiring experience for me. Special thanks to my tour guide. Remaining services were also good as I enjoyed many new food items in group meals. Highly recommended.

  I enjoyed this bus tour, but found the music really boring, that’s why I switched to my headphones. Thanks God, I did not forget my headphones. Yes! I appreciate good driving as the driver of the bus took good care of all passengers and drove smoothly and very responsibly. My son was there with me. He enjoyed destinations and all activities and the guidance was very informative and he noted much information in his diary which was new and interesting for him. Swamp tour and World War II Museum were such incredible places that nature and history goes side by side on this trip. I must recommend this tour to others.
