I would agree with most of the comments of Lisa W. David's presentation starts very shaky and improves over the course of the tour. At the beginning it almost appears as if he is making it up or its the first time he did the tour (which is not the case). I did like that this gave a feeling of... More

I attended this tour after reading the excellent reviews that it received on Trip Advisor. The fact that it was advertised as free was also appealing. David personally introduced himself at the start of the tour, which I thought was a thoughtful touch, and I also liked that he told us a bit about himself and how he came to... More

I might be out on a limb here, given the other excellent reviews by the majority of patrons, but I don't rate this tour at all. Maybe the guide was having a bad day. Firstly, it's not really free given the guide suggests for between $10-$20 gratuity per person. The tour guide was a bit rambling for the first hour.... More

The beat tour I have ever been on! Educational, funny and engaging. I highly recommend this tour. I have visited this city over 40 times but learned more on this tour than all my other trips combined.

Dave has done the research and gives the true historical info to really help you understand the history of New Orleans. He's knowledgeable and can actually answer historical questions, unlike some other guides in the city. With another year of experience I can see this tour being excellent - until then, be warned that he talks a bit quietly and... More

My family and I took the Nola Tour Guy tour on Friday 10/9. I try to find the tour that is not overly commercial and touristy, the one where the tour guide genuinely loves the subject and enjoys what he is doing. This is certainly the case with Dave. We toured around the French Quarter and St. Louis Cemetery for... More

We took the tour on Sat. 9/26. Very informative and interesting facts about New Orleans and the French Quarter. Our group was 6 (my family) a couple from Nigeria, 2 ladies from Norway and another couple from (up north) . David took the time to answer any questions and made everyone a part of the discussion :) Would definitely recommend... More

This guy knows his stuff. It was fulled with interesting and historical information. I have a greater appreciation for this town and its people. He should spend a little time to get to know the people onthe tour and encourage partciants to know one another for a day with interesting strangers. Better for us guests and your business. Great tour!

We booked this tour very last minute and Dave was very accommodative in adding us to the group on short notice. The tour led us through some of the key locations in the city and Dave's rich knowledge of the history gave a wonderful backdrop as to how NOLA became the way it is today. As a last stop, Dave...
