This was our first time visiting NOLA and we're are so happy that we took the Garden District walking tour. Randy is a local and is extremely knowledgeable. He was very honest throughout the tour and I absolutely loved how he busted some myths surrounding NOLA. If you're a movie buff, you'll see where they filmed the movie "Benjamin Butler"... More

Randy did an amazing job! He was our favorite part of the trip! We went on the ghost tour and he made it informational and fun! Would definitely do another one if ever get a chance to go back to NOLA!

We were lucky to get Randy as our guide in the garden district. He is very personable and provides a great tour at a reasonable pace. It's easy enough to wander around the area on your own, but with a tour you'll learn a lot.

My friend booked this tour and I wasn't all about the "Ghost Tour" because I am a huge chicken. Well, Randy was VERY knowledgeable and made the tour fun. We saw a lot of neat buildings, learned about the history, and some spooky things! Randy is the man!! He made the tour fun and the highlight of the trip! THANK... More

Well, you could go on one of those tours led by actors spinning phantasmagorical tales about New Orleans, or you can go with Randy, who is painstaking in his accuracy (he is a volunteer for the New Orleans City Archives), while being engaging, a great story teller, and having a great sense of humor. We took a two hour cemetery... More

My friends and I decided to take the cemetery tour, which we had done before and had an awesome experience. The tour guide makes all the difference. Randy was completely rude from the moment we walked up to the meeting spot. We asked if he was going to talk about the structures along the way, to which he replied yes.... More

Randy was a terrific guide. He was knowledgeable, able to answer all questions, provide a historical perspective and keep the attention of a relatively large group. In addition, I really enjoyed his sense of humor. This was my first time in New Orleans and he provided lots of information about the city, the residents and history of the city and... More

Our recent visit to New Orleans - our first - included two Magic Tours itineraries: French Quarter and Garden District. Both were excellent. Both tours started off a bit late since we were waiting for some late arrivals or those without cash, or both, but both tours ultimately included the "full program". Nancy did the French Quarter tour, and she... More

Randy is fun, personable, knowledgeable, and the person (aside from my traveling companions) that I want to spend the most time with in New Orleans. His tours were the highlight of our trip -- and his contribution to my New Orleans family history has been invaluable! Thank you, Randy! You are the BEST!!!! (Also went with other guides, no one...
