Our family group trip started with a private tour of the French Quarter and St. Louis #1 cemetery. Our guide was authentic, enthusiastic, and let us see a perspective we would not have picked up on own. He tailored the tour to our interests and schedule. We appreciated his candid dry humor. This tour company came through for us. Thanks!... More

My friends and I booked the Haunted Historical Tour, and we were not disappointed. Although we didn't see any ghosts or catch any orbs on our cameras, we thoroughly enjoyed the storytelling of our guide, Frank. Even if ghosts aren't your thing, this tour is seeped in fact, and you'll learn a ton about New Orleans' history and what it... More

We booked a Monday night cocktail/scandal tour. We were told to book ahead and called the number on the brochure to pay via credit card. After the third attempt to pay ( twice we were on hold and asked to call back later) we were told that the computers were down and I would get a call back. We were... More

I found a good deal on Groupon for this tour but I would have gladly paid the full price because it was well worth it. Our tour guide was Mr. Frank Currie, a local and a retired professor. He was obviously very knowledgeable and entertaining as well. My partner and I were with my 2 boys ages 13 and 14.... More

We took part in the evening walking tour of the French Tour with David. He has a real connection to the city and in addition to helping us learn to appreciate the art, architecture, and history that make New Orleans so special, he gave us tons of great recommendations for food, drinks, and attractions to make our visit even more...

Great, great tour. Do yourself a favour, skip over the other ones and just pick this one. I had Gwen, who was such a great guide, absolute firecracker! Tour was factual, informative, with a spice of humour. Couldn't recommend it more. Tip: go early on in your stay so if you see somewhere along the trail you'd like to go... More

Leonce, our guide, was fantastic. He knew the history and shared it in a fun and interesting way. He was knowlegeable and entertaining.

We highly recommend this tour of the Garden District. A self-guided tour would be ok, but having all the fun facts and information fed to you under the sweltering sun, instead of you looking it up yourself, is way better. Our guide Frank, is very knowledgeable, upbeat and very thoughtful - making sure all our stops would be for us... More

We took the 5pm historic tour. It seems most people want to take a haunted tour in the evening (we saw large groups of people wandering around) but, lucky for us, our tour was just my son and I. The tour guide kept his route, but adjusted the information to suit the 2 of us. He knew his history, the... More
