    Poor

    The first bus was full at4:00 and the second bus had room for 5 leaving people behind. We stopped at every stop as angry customers could not board and the driver argued with them. We still stopped again and again full the bus group had major issues I feel for those left behind.

    Hi Richard, thank you for Hopping-On. We are sorry that your experience on the Top-Deck was marred with this disappointing experience. The incident described was a difficult circumstance for all - not at all typical of the service we provide – but one we are working hard to prevent from reoccurring in the future. Above all, we hope you enjoyed your time in New Orleans.

    Pretty good, but consider costs and timing

    The hop-on hop-off bus tour is a great idea and was very useful for us in getting around so we didn’t have to walk everywhere. However, the tour guides are mixed as far as how much they tell you about the area. The fact that the buses stop at 5:30 makes it difficult. We also happened to buy this on a day where there was tragically a fire on St. Charles, and it did limit our tour. Our bus driver was pretty awesome though.
