Frank Currie led us on an exciting and historically fascinating tour of the French Quarter. Well other guides around us fought to keep their groups' attention with seemingly over-dramatized reditions, Frank kept it honest, which made the tour much more spooky and genuine. I would recommend this tour to friends, without a doubt.

We were lucky enough to have Gwen as our tour guide, and she was a stellar storyteller! She really brought the city to life, and helped us understand amazing background about the city. It was so much more than a cemetery tour! We learned the juicy history of what makes the Creole culture here tick, and a fascinating view of... More

I booked the Treme' tour for my BF because he is a huge fan of the show. Our tour guide, Milton, was amazing and had so much information to share with us that I never had any knowledge of and I consider myself a history buff. We had a wonderful, wonderful time and if you have been on their other... More

It is clear that an exploration of the history and culture of Louisiana / New Orleans would take a lot longer than two hours. However, Tony did an excellent job of giving us a tantalizing taste of a much deeper topic. His wry commentary did much to dispel some common myths. His involvement in Save Our Cemeteries provided a unique... More

The starting address is a quaint little place disguised by the NOPD station right next door. Great place to get some food, drink and a seat prior to starting out on this Awesome walking tour and don't forget to say Hi to the NOPD Cat that lives there too. The guides kept the groups to a reasonable number so we... More

When in a city for the first time, especially New Orleans which has such a rich history, we find walking tours most enjoyable. This tour was one of the best! Jane, our guide was very knowledgeable, animated and engaging. After 2 1/2 hours, we parted with a much clearer understanding of Louisiana & New Orleans culture as well as a... More

Robert was our guide. He had lots of stories to share with us about the history of the homes and their owners. The houses were unique and the walk easy. The roads and sidewalks are ALL uneven so wear good shoes and pay attention to your step!

Our family did a private tour of the Garden District while visiting New Orleans. The tour was so interesting and our guide, Frank Currie, was fantastic. Frank has a tremendous knowledge of the area. His family, as well as his wife's family, goes back several generations. He is interesting, knowledgeable and personable. We learned a lot about the Garden District... More

This company rocks. I have been on every tour. I go on the cocktail and garden tour every year. The tour guides are very knowledgeable, the booking/check in process is very easily and the tours are affordable. I HIGHLY recommend this company!
