On this tour we were provided with lots of facts about Hurricane Katrina. We saw houses that had been abandoned and never fixed up, houses that had been rebuilt and empty lots where houses used to be. Mary our tour guide lived through the hurricane so she was able to provide us with first hand information about the experience.
Our tour guide was Carol and our bus driver was Donald. Both gave us a sobering and informative tour of the area that Katrina devastated in August of 2005. Most of us remember seeing it on the news for days but this tour will bring home the realities of what people faced during that time and even today. There are... 更多
We were glued to our TV's in 2005 watching Hurricane Katrina descend upon New Orleans and then watching with horror and disbelief as the city flooded, people were stranded and the city was almost destroyed.

This tour was awesome! Very informative! Definitely go on the tour with tour guide Bruce Nolan! He is extremely good at what he does! The sites and things you see along with Bruce's commentary for sure put everything in regards to the events of Katrina in to perspective and tug at your heart and soul.
To be honest, we weren't sure whether the 50$-tour would be worth the money, but it absolutely was. It makes you understand New Orleans so much better. Our tour guide Bruce Nolan had experienced the flood himself. He covered it as a reporter and knew a lot of details and stories that really touched us. We absolutely recommend taking the... 更多

Obviously you don't see any of the actual devastation apart from photos mainly as most of its cleaned up. But you see the breaches of the walls and plots where houses used to stand. The... 更多
The Tour with a large bus was done by the guide Mary. She is an old lady with a terrible voice, who did not add any value to the tour. We regret we did not have other guides, for whom we have read enthusiastic reviews. So our advice; ask first who your guide will be and if it is Mary,... 更多
My friend and I did this tour to learn more about Katrina and also see more of New Orleans. The tour was very informative and gave a real picture of what it was like when the storm hit. There were a lot of good stops including a coffee shop. The tour itself is a little expensive but some of the... 更多
