I was very impressed with this tour. Communications with David were good. Met a few minutes early and got to chat. Very knowledgable, entertaining and personable. He texted the night before to remind me to bring water and an umbrella since there is no shade in the cemetery. Turned out it rained, so I'm glad I brought my umbrella! Might... More

My friend and I took the 2 hour french quarter and cemetary tour. We were there during the slow season, so it was actually just us on the tour which was nice. Dave was very informative; the whole tour was filled with interesting stories and fun facts about the history of the city. I would definitely recommend his tour.

We really enjoyed our tour of the Garden District and Lafeyette Cemetary. David was very knowledgeable and interesting. We had a small group of 6 which was really nice for being able to hear and stay as a group. Some of the tour groups we saw were much bigger. The tour lasted 2 hours. Be sure to bring a water... More

Contacted Nola Tour Guy in regards to booking a tour in July when I had a group of friends visiting. Never heard anything back, even though I sent it to the email address listed directly on the website. When a month had passed, I sent a follow up email explaining that I had inquired about a tour and hadn't heard... More

I am truly sorry for the mix up and I am sorry I came off as unfriendly on email. People email me months in advance then forget. I was just trying to avoid this by suggesting that you book the tour closer to the day. More

David really is the "Tour Guy of New Orleans". He shared his wonderful knowledge of architecture, history and lore of the French Quarter. The tour was at a casual pace so we could all stick together and hear all he had to say. We ended up in the St. Louis Cemetery. He has two other tours and we can't wait... More

It was a very thorough rundown of the French Quarter. He answered questions to things I didn't even think you ask. The highlight is absolutely the cemetery. It touches upon an important SCOTUS case and even 19th century art history.

I'm originally from New Orleans...I will never look at the streets of the French Quarter in the same way.

Nola Tour Guy is a single guy who ventured out on his own to do 'free' tours. You pay what you think the tour is worth. It was very good and he really knows the city and the French Quarter in particular. I would recommend NOLA Tour Guy to anyone.

Did the walking tour of the French quarter with Dave - it was great! He is an awesome tour guide, very personable, funny, and knowledgeable. The tour lasted about 2 hours with lots of stops and explanations of architecture, historical events, and other facts about the city. You end the tour at the French Market, which has plenty of food,... More

We loved David's tour of the French Quarter - his love for the city and its history is obvious, and I'd sign up for another of his tours anytime. Well, the next time I'm in New Orleans, which I hope will be soon.
