We really had a great time with movie info. John was knowledgeable in movies and New Orleans history. We even saw Russell Brand near the set of a movie he was filming! Then we saw Brooke Shields. John was informative and personable, highly recommend tour!

How great was it to have Russell Brand stop by the van?! And we drove by and saw Brooke Shields. You ladies got real lucky on that tour! Thank you so much for joining me and writing a review.

What a great way to finish my visit of New Orleans. I own a production company in Canada and I was impressed with Jonathan's knowledge of not only New Orleans and Hollywood South but of his film history as well. He was courteous, professional and provided great popcorn snacks along the way. We were safely driven through the streets of the French Quarter and the American Quarter. We saw celebrity houses and learned inside secrets of the stars. Then, as we finished up we caught a glimpse of Tim Robbins with his son walking down the street.

What fun seeing Tim Robbins on the tour! Sometimes I feel like there are more celebrities in town then non-celebrities. So happy that we created some great memories for you. Thank you so much for the amazing review. You made my day!

Jonathan and Michelle Ray have put their hearts and minds into this wonderful tour. Perfect timing (you see clips of the movies as you pass the film sites); you ride the streets along the same path as the cars depicted in the films. You get popcorn. You get a pit stop. You get all kinds of great trivia. And answers to even the most arcane questions. And good gossip, too. And you see almost everything there is to see in NOLA. Who cold ask for anything more?

Went on the tour just hoping for a different way to see parts of New Orleans and rest our tired feet. Have seen some of the movies on the tour ( we look for movies with New Orleans settings just because we love New Orleans). Jonathan was so knowledgeable, friendly and fun, and his radio voice was an extra bonus. Was very cool that we ran into so many people he knew. Met Clarke Peters in the Marigny while on the tour. Jackpot bonus. Tour is low key and interesting, tourist yes, but not in a tacky way - a very nice way to spend a couple hours. Would recommend it highly

Thank you for that amazing compliment. Anytime I can exceed someones expectations, it makes my day. And thank you for taking time out of your day to write a review. It is because of great people like you that I can continue to do what I love. And what a great treat to have Clarke Peters (Big Chief from Treme) stop by the van and chat with us. With all the actors around town filming you never know who we are going to run into!
Thank you so much!!!

We had a blast with Jonathan, our tour guide (and owner). We learned so much that we never would have known without this tour. Many, many movies are made in NOLA because of tax breaks and Jonathan knows about ALL of them. He also showed us the homes of the rich and famous. We loved it and highly recommend the experience.
