There were four in our party and all of us really enjoyed a fun two hours with Jonathan. He was very knowledgeable and ask for our requests re: places that we wanted to see and movies that were set in New Orleans. He was very accommodating. Not only was this a great movie tour but also allowed us to see... More

If you enjoy movies and want to learn how New Orleans has played a significant role in shooting locations for many movies and television programs, this tour would be an excellent choice. Jonathan was amazing at multi-tasking as he navigated his way through the city, describing the scenes, and asking trivia questions throughout the tour. The 10-passenger van is perfect... More

Really interesting to see the actual places movies and TV shows were filmed/taped. Jonathan has a great sense of humor and a wealth of movie knowledge. Highly recommend. You also see quite a bit of the city which makes it a 2 for 1! Now if only we found Scott Bakula it would have been perfection! :)

This was a great tour. A chance to ride around and see different parts of New Orleans instead of walking, which you do alot of in that city. John made it so much fun and made sure we got to see what we were interested in. Highly recommend this for anyone as a different and fun way to see the... More

We arrived early and Jonathon was already there, it turned out that we where his only customers for the morning tour, we have been to New Orleans a number of times and were really surprised at all the places we have walked by and not known about its film history until Jonathon told us, he is a very knowledgeable person,...

Jonathon was super fun, integrated actual movie clips to watch right where they were filmed and even included his own special effects like making the van shake and pick up speed during a high speed chase. We felt bad that he got a flat tire with only a half hour left. Next time we are in town we will be... More

Jonathan was superb and managed to understand our Scottish accents, even the banter! We had an amazing tour and it was great that he took the time to understand what everyone liked and tailored the tour to suit. The tour suits all ages as we looked at old movies as well as more recent ones. Another thing is that you... More

Very relaxing tour after days of hitting the pavement. Interesting and casual. Jonathan was kinda campy but fun all the same.

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.
