The tour guide was informative and spoke the entire time, but the speaker wasn’t the most clear. In addition road construction caused an alteration to the tour

Bus stopped at visitors center for 15-20+ mins leaving us on top in the blazing Sun causing us to become ill so we had to get off at the next stop to take a Uber back to our Hotel. Would like a Partial Refund since we paid extra for the 3 day tour but only use it for 30 mins before exiting off and not going on either of the other walking tours due to illness from the Heat and Sun.

5/5 Oct 24, 2018

From the driver to each tour guide, our three days in New Orleans was superb. We learned so much . This tour is a must. The walking tours were also terrific. Thank you sparkle.
