We just finished our French Quarter tour with guide Kathy Harrell and we highly recommend the tour and especially Kathy, who was born and raised in NOLA and is therefore able to add personal experience and viewpoint to the wealth of knowledge she imparts of the history of the Quarter. If you are planning to spend any time in the... More

Don't hesitate. This was a fascinating tour! Our guide, Denver, shared his deep knowledge of New Orleans history, beginning at Lafayette 1 cemetery, where he recounted exactly why below ground burials failed and the challenges of using above-ground tombs. We then toured the Garden District, learning about various types of architecture. For those of you interested in the famous people... More

You decide what you want to pay at the end of the tour based upon your budget and experience. You do not have to pay anything if you can't afford it. The guides willingly answered all... More

We rode the St Charles street car to the washington stop and walked about 2 blocks to the starting point. $3.00 a day to ride the streetcar is a screaming deal. We arrived early so stopped at a coffee shop accross from... More
