We had plenty of time between getting off of the ship and our flight home, so we decided to book the Past, Present, & Perfect tour that takes you on a bus ride around the city. Our luggage was stored safely under the bus, so we did not have to worry about it while on the tour and any of the stops we made. It was a great way to waste some time instead of sitting at an airport for a late flight. I wish it could have lasted longer, but 3 hours was still a really good amount of time. Read Less

We did this on the final day, since it was cost-effective to take the tour rather than arrange a van to the airport. Guide (Wolf) was fun and shared lots of anecdotes about the city as well as the effects of Hurricane Katrina and the adaptations the city made to ward against future storms. Bus was comfortable, tour was 3.5 hours and the driver/guide are able to manage the time perfectly to maximize the sights but still get you to the airport on time, regardless of traffic conditions Read Less

We chose this tour as a supplement to the three days we spent in NOLA prior to the cruise since it included airport drop off that fit our flight schedule. Our tour guide Wolf was phenomenal! What a wealth of information and so easy to listen to! We enjoyed the stop at City Park where we got some last minute souvenirs and the walking tour of the cemetery. I also loved seeing the Garden District and gaining a small understanding of the ongoing efforts to recover from Katrina. Drop off at the airport was right on time and easy. Read Less

Hop-on Hop-off Bus: We did the three day package even though we only used 2 days of it for $10 more. You get a free walking tour of the Garden District and part of the French Quarter with the three day package. It is definitely with the extra $10. We used the Hop-on Hop-off Bus to get around the city the second day to visit different site, instead of a taxi. Saved us money. Read Less

Tour guide was a New Orleans native with lots of information to provide and personal stories to tell. Mostly on a bus, but also included a stop at City Park for beignets and a short walk though St Louis 3 cemetery. Ended at the airport.

There was a big race in town that day, and the tour director didn't seem to have a Plan B for where to go. We basically ran the tour "backwards", though we had to skip several stops. Then the bus started to have problems. The engine was overheating and kept dying. The driver could not get any assistance from his headquarters, so he had to limp to our final destination, running about two blocks at a time. Not much fun. Read Less
