What to expect
Your New Orleans tour starts with a pickup from your hotel around 15 minutes before your tour time. Get acquainted with your guide, and then set off for your city exploration. Since this tour is by van, it’s easier for you to access areas of the French Quarter, the 9th Ward, and the Garden District that you wouldn’t be able to on a large tour bus. Pass by Frenchmen Street, Musician’s Village, Esplanade Avenue, Bayou Saint John, 17th Street Canal, Carrollton Avenue, Tulane and Loyola Universities, and the National WWII Museum. See beautiful architecture, city landmarks, and even spooky cemeteries with local legends attached. Your guide tells you stories about the history and culture of each area, and discusses the city’s experience of and recovery from Hurricane Katrina. At the end of your tour, get dropped off at your hotel or in the French Quarter to explore more on your own.

NOLA is so much more than the French Quarter
Apr 2021
Our tour guide Oz (Oswald L.) was great. As a New Orleans native he has a vast amount of knowledge about and history of New Orleans. The tour took us all over the city and really gives you a more complete picture of this beautiful city. I highly recommend it.

Wonderful Private Tour
Dec 2020
We were a group of four and we had Oz all to ourselves. Great experience. The audio system in the van provided perfect communication. View from windows as he traveled at low speeds or stopped at all the best sites made the experience even better. Lots of information and history. We totally enjoyed it. We all wore our masks for this whole trip due to COVID 19 except when I took the picture of Oz.

Oz was fabulous
We had a wonderful tour with Oz. His knowledge of the city was impressive. He gave us a much better. Derogatory ding of the culture and history (including Katrina). The time just flew buy and we saw so much of New Orleans. We wish we had done this the first day we were in New Orleans. But, we will be back. Be sure to do this tour on the first day

Great tour, Excellent service and value
I traveled alone to New Orleans and wanted to see the sights without trying to navigate through town with Google maps. This tour came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Oz, our driver was witty, knowledgeable and courteous. The minivan was comfortable with only 2 other people in the tour. In this era of covid, it was very nice to SAFELY get out and see the sights that only New Orleans has to offer. I absolutley highly recommend this tour!

Great guides, super convenient, small groups
Although most of the city was shut down, the tour was awesome!! Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining. They pick you up right at your hotel and drop you off there making it super convenient. The tour was also super interactive. We learned a lot about the city of New Orleans in a small group which was great.

New Orleans City Tour
Feb 2020
We did a city tour on our first day to New Orleans. Celebration tours offered a clean and comfortable vehicle in which to orient us to this great city. Our tour guide was personable and skilled enough to take questions during each of his speeches. We thought talking about Katrina was a no-no but the guide spent a good portion of the tour showing us Katrina-related sights and clearing up misconceptions about the disaster.

Perfect Intro to the City
Feb 2020
This tour provided a really good overview of New Orleans. Because its a van tour, you are able to cover a lot of ground and see different sights and neighborhoods, while getting interesting background historical information. The tour is not designed to go fully in depth to the areas that you visit, but does provide a thorough understanding of what you are seeing. I recommend doing this tour to start on your first day and to go back to explore more via walking tour the areas that interest you. Wanda was a great driver and guide. Wanda, being a New Orleans native, was fun to talk to and she had reliable taste in pointing out good spots and places to visit. She gave us very helpful suggestions and tips which we utilized for the rest of our trip.
