A great tour around French Quarter. The guide is really nice and knows a lot about the history of the city. She was very kind and always tried to see if everyone were enjoying, needing some help or wanting to ask something about the tour.

We were hesitant to use this service since it is free but our experience could not have been any better. We went on the ghost tour with Teri. She was a very upbeat and a knowledgeable guide. She was very happy to answer any questions, share personal experiences and was not afraid to make us laugh. We also went on... More

We did the Voodoo walking tour with our guide Robi-- it was fantastic! It was a scorching hot morning, and Robi was always helping us find some shade or a seat to cool down a bit along the tour. Robi was super fun and informative-- would highly recommend!

Our guide, Sean, gave us a great walking tour in the French Quarter, managing successfully a large group under very intence heat in the middle of the day... Sean is very knowledgable about the city's history and his tour includes known and less-known aspects of the local and American history. Sean also has great tips for bars/restos/shops in the area.

I did the french quarter tour with Joanne and we met in front of the statue in Jackson Square for 10 Am. This tour has numerous times but if you are going in the summer take the first available time in the morning it gets warm fast. That being said I did wear comfortable shoes and had a small backpack... More

She was thoughtful in findings shade along the way. Great way to familiarize yourself with the area and Get a history lesson. Make sure You tip these... More

Natalie was very knowledgable and enthusiastic about NOLA. Kept me engaged and I learned something new. Definitely worth more then the price of"free". Recommend take the morning tour to avoid the heat especially if your visiting in the summer.

Difficult to give a fair review because I was SO MISERABLE in the heat, with a blister. Learned a few interesting historical facts/tidbits, and got to see some areas I had not ventured into. Guide was not an "over actor", sometimes a little boring. I like that you pay what you want in the end, instead of being charged prior.
