It was a great overview of the city on a very comfortable bus. Our driver was knowledgeable and shared great information about the history of the city as well as the significant impact of Katrina. There were only two stops - one for a quick drink and snack and then for the cemetery. That part is fairly short but again with a good overview of history and the reason for the above ground burials.

Would've liked looking at the cemeteries a little bit longer maybe a walking tour. Love looking at all the architecture in the city and hearing about everything that was going on.
