Went during the day and had a blast. Food was okay and the kids liked it. Served buffet style and then you could sit wherever and enjoy the ride. A little pricey, but every big city is. I wouldn't take it at night( couldn't see anything) but I would go again during the day.

locals will tell you what to expect on any tour before you book it. As for as the food on the john james. if you would have asked a local they would have told you it is not a sit down dinner, you are going to the zoo by water rather than by land

Staying in Central Business District

Neighbourhood Profile
Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
