Once we had established which Tour we were on (suggested by Concierge) as there are several with similar names & routes, this way of discovering a bit of History was very enjoyable. I've unfortunately forgotten our guides name as she more than deserves a mention, but if I describe her as petite with a German accent, I'm sure that anyone... More

The tour that begins in the Garden District Book Shop at The Rink. Dave was the tour guide and he did a good job of taking us around. I was not impressed with the whole thing for 2 reasons: 1. The places and descriptions covered in the tour were right out of Fodor’s tour book and I could have walked... More

Our guide was a local who is very educated in New Orleans history. Tour starts at Café Beignet next to police station. You start with learning the history of New Orleans creation, culture and architecture. From here you move on to a church tour and cemetery tour. It was hot the day we went. I recommend lots of water and... More

I was planning on being on the tour with several other people. However, no one else showed! So, Frank Curry, the tour guide, gave me the option to wait until the next day to be with a group. I'm glad I decided to go then and there. I felt like a V.I.P. on an exclusive tour. Frank was a delightful... More

We took a 3 hour tour of New Orleans on a van with John as our guide. It was very comprehensive and instructional. John is a native and knew so much history and had architectural information about the various styles of houses. We even toured the Meterie cemetery which was a highlight of the tour. The only complaint is the... More

We did the cemetery tour at 1 p.m. on the hottest day of the year! I'm not recommending that time of day but, Milton our tour guide was Amazing. He gave us a great tour of the cemetery and lots of information about the history of New Orleans. Highly recommend this tour company!

You cannot visit St Louis Cemetery number 1 without a tour guide. Greg was our tour guide and, for us, this was the largest tour group that we have been a part of during our holiday. There were 30 people on our tour and at points, despite his best efforts, it was difficult to hear him due to background noise... More

We bought this tour through Groupon and decided to do the night ghost tour as our option. After meeting our guide Ina, who did an awesome and informative job, in Pirate's Alley the stories began. This company gives you factual things that have happened and not the scary made up some tours use. The real facts they give are scary... More
