We enjoyed our tour with Denise Augustine, who showed us some very interesting places and shared amazing (and a few spooky) stories of the French Quarter. Our tour was on 10-10-2014, and we left this experience feeling like we had a better understanding of the peoples, cultures, religions and history that makes up this vibrant city. Thank you Denise!

We took the Garden District walking tour this weekend and it was OUTSTANDING. Our guide, Dave Thomas, was terrific; knowledgeable and entertaining. I highly recommend it. It's a nice break from the usual NOLA tourist "thing" and fun to see the real Garden District, not just what you get when you take the street car.

The tour of cemetery St. Louis #1 was a very nice tour, our guide (David) was excellent, very good info. He told us everything we wanted to know and some more, very enthusiastic. He was very knowledgeable, he answered all our questions (and we had quite some). We did it in October so no problems with the temps, but for... More

We took a haunted tour on 10/10/14. The tour was very enjoyable although our feet were a little sore afterwards (it was worth it though). The tour guide (Denise) was exciting and knowledgeable. Not did she do a great job combining the history with her own family traditions but also explained everything in context of what was going on at... More

We took two tours through this company. The St. Louis #1 and the haunted tour. Loved both of them. Historically accurate information without the hype. Our guides were Gwen and Ina. Both were very knowledgable and seemed to have true love for this great city. Ina even helped us find a place for a late diner.

Took the Gray Line Super City Tour today (10/10/14). It's a great way to see the City's highlights for first time visitors (although we did wander the French Quarter before and after the tour. Our driver/guide Ken was excellent and very knowledgeable, as well as quite humorous. He gave us a lot of information and facts that we would have... More

Had a blast! Great tour and learned a lot about local history. Not really about Voodoo per se but fun none the less.

We were interested in learning some of the more juicy history of New Orleans, so we booked the "Scandalous Cocktail Hour" Tour. Our tour guide was sweet, but the content of the tour was basically info we could have learned anywhere else. She talked a great deal about Hurricane Katrina (including the gov'ts poor response and the only bar that... More

The tour of the Garden District and Cemetery was enjoyable. The guide was friendly, very knowledgeable and filled us in on the history of the area as well as the evolution of the architecture. The tour is advertised as two hours long but ours was only about an hour and a half. I would have appreciated an extra 30 minuted... More
