These free walking tours are a great way to see the city, and for a reasonable price too. This walking tour was so informative that we didn't mind paying for our guide's services. We really got to learn so much about this amazing city, and I'm glad that we did this tour.

Excellent tour by Kat. Very knowledgable, saw beautiful homes with history and culture behind them. I am So happy I stepped out of the French Quarter to take this tour. Obviously you need to tip well, but there was NO pressure to tip. At the end she said said it was over and would stick around for questions. She didn't... More

we took this tour on a beautiful Monday morning, and throughly enjoyed it. It was about 2 hours, and very educational. Denver was our guide, and he was very knowledgable, and kept our attention with his humor. About half the tour time was spent in and around the cometary, and the rest was spent walking the surrounding blocks to view... More

Went on a ghost tour with Sean as our tour guide our last night in NOLA and was so upset that we didn't do the tour our first night! Not only did Sean fill us in on all of the hauntings throughout the French Quarter but also gave us a good deal of history of New Orleans. He was extra... More

To have a knowledgeable guide who likes what she does is a delight. Natalie paced the tour well, kept an eye on stragglers, and gave us lots of information in only two hours. Her talk was entertaining, not canned, and it seemed she was telling us real history, nothing made up on the spot. My husband and I will do... More

I did three of these in one day, which was perhaps one too many, but what a great concept. First up, I did the Louis Cemetery No 1 and the guide was so great. She was full of enthusiasm and passion for her job and New Orleans in general. Secondly I did the Garden District one with Kat as a... More

Elizabeth Broussard was our tour guide on November 22nd. She gave us a tour about the history of the French quarter. Overall, I found her to be quite knowledgeable, and being a local she shared the historical tit-bits with great flavor. The best part of the tour is that it's free, and one isn't under a compulsion to pay for... More

We were in new Orleans for 1 week and we went on 3 tours....the cocktail tour, the city tour and the cemetery/Voodoo tour. Every tour was great...the guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and professional. It gave us a very good introduction to the different facets of the city. We missed the Ghost tour, which is supposed to be awesome.

My husband attended a conference in NOLA. While he was at his meetings, I went on 4 tours and they were fantastic! I went on the Ghost tour, the culinary tour, Voodoo tour, and the city tour. The tour guides were great! The guides all had a deep appreciation of the history of the city. They were very helpful in... More
