Mary LaCoste and George were our tour guides. Mary brought excitement to this very humbling experience in explaining the devastation of Katrina.

I found there wasn't much to see, which is actually a good thing, since much has been restored. I found it a little too long, with two hours on the bus before a bathroom break. The ninth ward was the most interesting, since you can...More
Great tour, very informative. Our guide Daniel is very knowledgeable and passionate about this tragedy and how it changed people's lives impacted the city and its residents. Daniel added a lot of historical facts and personal anecdotes as well. Highly recommended!
