My husband and I enjoyed the tour on our first evening in New Orleans. Our guide, who is a local, had many great stories you might not find in the books as well as historical information. We are not big bar hoppers, but it was fun to try the different cocktails and listen to the scandalous tales at each location.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour! We had an intimate group of 3. Our guide, Leonce, was an energitic 77 year old who loves his city and knows a lot about it. He told us such interesting things and pointed out great beautiful and famous houses. He was able to answer all the questions and had a great sense of humor.... More

We had the BEST time on this tour! Our guide Ernie was so fun and very informative. I really don’t think we would have enjoyed it as much with another guide! He had us laughing like crazy the entire time. I would actually take this tour again. Wear comfy shoes and take an umbrella even if it’s not supposes to... More

I did the French Quarter tour with Leonce & he was ace. He was professional & so knowledgable. Wish I had have done this on my first day, then I would have had a better insight into the quarter.

I did the Haunted Tour with Frank on my first night in New Orleans - what a fantastic way to be introduced to the intrigue of the French Quarter! I chose this tour because Frommer's assured me this company's guides were well-educated and focused on the history as opposed to sensationalism. It was the perfect mix of history and fun.... More

This was the first thing we did on our visit to New Orleans, and it was a superb introduction to the French Quarter. We went to some great places off-the-beaten-path. Our tour guide Ina was awesome, she was a great story-teller, and made the whole tour fun and informative. We got to try some new cocktails we had never tried... More

We checked around and this haunted tour was ranked the best and most genuine. Our guide Frank has always lived in New Orleans so he was very knowledgeable about the French Quarter and it's hauntings. Frank stuck to recorded stories rather than rumors which made the stories more chilling.

Had a great tour guide that gave us a lot of interesting info. Growing up in La, I thought I knew a lot but learned quite a bit that I was not aware of. A little expensive but worth it.

The Cocktail Hour Tour was a lot of fun. We got to try signature New Orleans drinks at locations important to the history of the French Quarter, and it put us in contact with all sorts of places that we'd never have thought to go on our own.
