“Blown Away”

“I was blown away at how many interesting things were out there that I may have otherwise just walked by without noticing had it not been for our amazing tour guide, Paula. I highly recommend this tour to tourists and locals alike. I’ve taken tours with a few other guides, and New Orleans Top Tours was by far the best. It wasn’t even close.”

“My 12, 10 and 7-year-old kids all asked if we could do it again next weekend. This would be the perfect tour for my out-of-town family. I also spoke with the tour guide about setting up a ghost tour for my next corporate meeting in New Orleans. Can’t say enough about New Orleans top tours!”
