More than 10 years ago I took the Le Monde Creole tour. It was wonderful. I so enjoyed the stories of the Laura Locoul family and how it was woven into various venues that we walked to in the French Quarter. I took the tour again in January 2015 and was so disappointed. It was much more akin to local... More

Please be aware that there are two guides at Le Monde Creole tours named "Bill". There is myself; Bill C. the owner, and Bill K. As the owner, I take these reviews seriously and after these two recent reviews, Bill K has been temporarily removed from tour-guiding and is being retrained. It is our mission to give the best quality... More

We were on a group tour and our group coordinators picked this tour for us and we couldn't have been happier. We were on the French Quarter tour and Rosemary was very up to date and knew all the ins and outs of New Orleans. She was born and raised NOLA, so that was a plus. Even had the N'awlins... More

Amazing and informative tour. This is for people that are interested in history by an informed local. Really great worth the money. Highly recommended. Bill is an animated teacher and a great guide. Highly recommended.

This is a tour for people who want to savor history in its intimate, human details. If you're hoping to get a quick overall view of everything New Orleans has to offer, this may not work for you. The tour focuses on one New Orleans family who spans the whole history of the city. You learn through understanding the context... More

We made our first trip to New Orleans and wanted to do some tours of the city. Based upon the reviews, we chose this tour for our first morning in New Orleans. We went to the gift shop and met our tour guide Bill. Bill was very friendly and courteous and we started the tour. We walked for 10 minutes... More

In 2010 when the Mr. & visited New Orleans we stopped by Laura Plantation on our way home. It was a great tour and it was there we learned about the 'companion tour' in New Orleans. I knew if we ever made it back to NOLA, we would be taking that tour. I'm so glad we did. While it might... More

My family enjoyed the Le Monde Creole tour this morning (that would be my husband and I, and our sons of 19 and 22 who are both history buffs**). Our tour guide was very engaging and informative. I thought it was a great introduction to the French Quarter overall, and includes private courtyards not open to regular tourists and a... More

Wonderful guide, I learned so much about the history of this unique city. There are many surprising facts. I also saw the architecture in a new way. Definitely worth it.

We went to this tour and I have to say, if there is one tour you need to do in new orleans its this one! Bill is by far the best tour guide I've ever met, and is such a great story teller. He will make you travel back in time. Worth every penny, Don't miss it!!!

I visited New Orleans for the first time a few months ago for my friends 40th birthday celebration. We signed up for this tour when we first arrived and in retrospect, it made a huge difference in my whole New Orleans experience. We were so lucky to get Ina as our tour guide. She is so knowledgeable about the city,... More
