This was the best tour that we did in New Orleans. It was so informative and we learned so much about Katrina and New Orleans that we didn't know. Our Guide gave us first hand stories about Katrina, as he was part of it. He was informative, unbiased and so knowledgeable . If i was to go to New Orleans again I would do this tour a second time.

Our guide was very knowledgeable, having been a reporter that covered Katrina. Guide was personable, answered questions, and painted vivid images as we went through the tour. The tour was excellent, worth the money, and I highly recommend it. Darren the bus driver was great as well!!

What an eye opener this tour was! Mr. Bill was the perfect guide a former newsman who actually worked on TV during this whole catastrophe. He gave us insights, feelings, behind-the-scenes tidbits that we found fascinating. I would do this tour again it was so good and I can't imagine a more informed, compassionate guide than Mr. Bill!
