We arrived Friday and stumbled around Bourbon st ourselves. Saturday morning we were excited to have a real tour lined up. We grabbed beignets from Cafe de Monde and walked the short distance past Jackson Sq to our meeting location. We were a group of around 6 people which is a perfect size for a walking tour. Our guide David... More

David gave hands down the best tour I've been on of any city. His history background allows him to dive into the interrsting facts while keeping the tour interesting. Keep it up David!

David was an excellent guide, thorough and knowledgeable. Don't waste your time with "free" tours, Dave is worth every penny.

We booked Dave for a tour of the Garden District over the week of Christmas. We liked that he was very local and had a lot of personality. In fact, there were a few reviews that seemed critical of him in his appearance, demeanor and that is when we actually knew this is the guy we wanted. Someone very honest,... More

This was our second trip to New Orleans and our second tour with David. I enjoy walking tours and he is one of the best guides I've seen. We went on his French Quarter tour the first time we were in New Orleans, and on our return trip we joined him for a tour of the Garden District. Both are... More

We do a lot of walking tours of the cities we go to. One of the issues in NOLA is sifting through the number of tours available! Go no further! Dave did a great informal, small and extremely knowledgeable walking tour of the French quarter and cemetery. He is obviously passionate about the history of this place and he explained... More

Dave did an awesome job providing historical information about the French Quarter, and Cemetery. He allowed time for questions and photos. His love for the area really shows. I really enjoyed the tour and learning the history, culture, and architecture of the French Quarter. I definitely recommend taking this tour at the start of your stay. He points out places... More

I was on a small tour with David. We're not really into being part of a tour group, but we understand the value of being with someone knowledgable. So, I texted David in the morning and asked if the group would be large. When he assured us it wouldn't be (there were just 4 members), we decided to give it... More
