Haunted French Quarter Walk-Our tour guide, Denise, was the best we could've asked for. Extremely informative and wonderful at presenting the information. You can tell she knows her history of the area. Definitely recommend this tour. Cemetery/Voodoo History Tour- Milton was our tour guide. Again, very informative and knew his history. Wonderful with answering any questions we had. Highly recommend... More

"Anna" (I believe this was her middle name) was a great guide with a hint of a Cajun accent from her local upbringing. We took the St. Charles streetcar to the starting point of the tour. I didn't realize it also included a substantial stop at one of the nearby cemeteries so that was a bonus - we'd already seen... More

Took the voodoo and cemetary tour in November. Gwen was our tour guide and we just loved her. She was a wealth of information and a hoot. What a fabulous tour guide. She is just a wealth of information. We took a few tours during this trip and she was the best by far. We hope to take more of... More

The instructions on how to get to the Garden Tour were excellent. If you have the time to go by Streetcar, please do so. The charm begins with that streetcar ride. Our tour guide was excellent. He knew the City of New Orleans to a tee. He loves the town and it shows with his stories and facts surrounding this... More

New Orleans is definitely a city where you want to walk around on your own somewhat because you never know what's around the next corner. But the city's history is so complex that you really maximize your time if you have a good professional tour guide. I took two excellent tours from Historic New Orleans Tours (the French Quarter and... More

More or less a search for notible drinks in the French Quarter. Local drink lore interjected as you walk and sample drinks from various establishments gives this tour a special twist to your typical "history tour". Our guide made our evening special as he kept the tour personable. I highly suggest taking this tour early in your stay especially if... More

Recently took this tour with Leonce. We were the only two booked so enjoyed a casual stroll through the French Quarter, visiting a total of seven establishments. This is NOT a drinking tour although we did enjoy our first Hurricane at an out of the way spot called May Brady's Bar. Guide was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot... More

Our group decided to sign up for a Garden District walking tour. The first fun part was riding the Trolley from our hotel down St. Charles Avenue to the Garden District. We then met Ina our tour guide at the book store aka the Skating Rink for the 1884 World's Fair. First of – Ina was awesome. A colorful lady... More

This tour is fun and informative, and tasty, too. You don't have to drink to enjoy the historical aspect if this tour. Our guide, Rebecca, gave us a great understanding of New Orleans history, wrapped around the various New Orleans cocktails. She was friendly, fun, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour to everyone, drinkers and mom-drinkers alike!
