Tour Operator Services

Let us help you plan seamless transportation solutions that will leave you wondering why you haven’t worked with us before.


Our passengers’ safety is our number one priority day-in and day-out. We work hard to ensure that no matter what is on the mind of our customers, it won’t ever be about whether they’re safe when they set foot on a Hotard coach. We are proud of our DOT/FMCSA safety rating.  That top rating is our standard.


We continue to invest in a fleet of coaches that you can be proud of. From a high-quality maintenance program to our impeccable cleaning schedule, our team is here to ensure that our coaches add to the experience instead of taking away from it.


“Highly trained.” “Professionally Dressed.” “Friendly.” These are just some of the phrases used to describe our drivers. We work hard to provide tour operators with drivers that combine driving experience with great local knowledge so that we can keep your groups happy.

Local Knowledge

No one knows our area better than we do. From your very first call, we know we’ll surprise you with our local knowledge, and we’d love to help customize your tour to meet the specific interests of your group.


Every tour operator that uses motorcoaches dreads getting a call from group leaders to say that a coach is late, broken down, or that they are left stranded on the side of the road. At Hotard Coaches, our entire team is committed to doing everything we can to ensure these things don’t happen.  In the very unlikely event that something goes wrong, we’re on call 24/7 to get your group going again as quickly as possible.

Customer Service

In far too many cases, tour operators get treated like second-class citizens when it comes to booking coaches. We know how hard you work, how much each group means to you, and we will do everything we can to help you deliver on the promises you make, day-in and day-out. We want you to feel respected when you work with us.

We are here to help take your tour group the places you want to go.

Green Transportation

At Hotard, our commitment to the environment runs deep. Our company is grounded in the belief that what we leave behind for our children is every bit as important as what we accomplish today. Every day we take hundreds of cars off Louisiana roads and deliver the highest passenger miles per gallon of any means of group transportation. We are consistently leading the transportation industry toward a greener tomorrow.

Professional Drivers

Our driver pool is one of the things we are most proud of at Hotard. We have some of the south’s most accomplished and highly-trained drivers on the roads today. We know that your driver matters, whether you’re being picked up at the airport and taken to a local hotel, or if you are going on a 6-day road trip. We are proud that our drivers are the face of our organization and know that no matter who you ride with, you’re in good hands!

24-Hour Travel Support

No matter how much we want everything to go perfectly, no matter how well we prepare, there are those moments where you simply need help and you need it now! And no matter how much we wish they didn’t, it seems like more often than not, these things happen in the middle of the night. Our team understands that you need help when you need it, not in the morning when someone gets in to the office. Our team of dedicated customer service representatives will always have someone there to take your call, answer your question, and get you the help you need to ensure your travels with us are as perfect as we can make them.

We are here to help take your tour group the places you want to go.

  • We were absolutely delighted with our driver, Denise, and Hotard's punctual service, willingness to improvise, spotless equipment and more.  Our Garden District guide, Mary Eshenour, was delightful, informative and very knowledgeable.  Everything worked to perfection, and I would not hesitate to recommend Hotard to any group visiting New Orleans. And it was a pleasure working with our sales person as well!

  • The service you all provided this weekend was EXCELLENT and one of the best I have ever worked with. Hotard was very thorough and prompt with the booking and scheduling process and our three drivers, Darrell, John and Leonard were timely, friendly and very adaptable.   It is people like you that make our trips so successful. Thank you for this! I look forward to working with you all again when we travel to Louisiana again soon.

  • What a fabulous bus!  Your company has now spoiled us.  The bus was great.  We can't wait until our next trip.  Thelma Alexander was an excellent driver.  Her patience and professionalism with a group of "young" ladies is superb.

  • Thanks for helping make our daughter's event wonderful!  The bus was wonderful and Brandon was awesome! I will definitely recommend your company.
