We really enjoyed our walking tour of the Garden District. Our tour guide, Dave, was a New Orleans native and full of interesting information about the city's history. He was very accommodating, even detouring for a bathroom and water break when a number of the tour asked for it. Come prepared for the humidity with your hats, sunscreen, and lots... More

My friend and I visited New Orleans for a short weekend trip and this was by far the best part of the vacation. We booked the Haunted Tour and our guide (whose name I've forgotten) is a history professor at a local college. This made the tour even better because he weaved history in with the haunted. There was nothing... More

I loved my white royal carriage ride. Susan and her mule Mac were really fun! I waited 41 years for a carriage ride, and it was beautiful, especially at night. Susan gave us so much history of NOLA. Well worth the $18 per person.Of course the walk across the street to Cafe DuMond for beignetts sweetened up the night!!

We took the Cemetery Voodoo tour with Gwen the morning after we arrived in New Orleans, with Gwen as our guide. She was knowledgeable and witty, and her obvious love for history and New Orleans culture set the tone for our short visit to the city. In spite of the rainy weather, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time and I... More

We took the French Quarter walking tour with Anita, and it was great. She was funny and informative, and we got an interesting and helpful overview/review of New Orleans history. My kids (13, 13, and 10) were a little bored, but they tolerated it well. Next time I visit New Orleans, I will definitely take one of their other tours... More

We had "Nita" for a tour of the Garden District and cemetery. She was really knowledgeable and funny too. Our only disappointment was that we booked in advance (before even flying to New Orleans) and on the day we arrived, poor Nita was on the phone trying to figure out if they could get a second guide there because too...

The Garden District tour started in the cemetery where we heard a brief history of New Orleans, it's people groups and how they came to settle in the various parts of the city. The guide shared interesting facts about the cemetery, burial routines and the types of people buried in them. Then we toured several blocks of the district noting... More

I did two tours with this company during my stay in New Orleans. The first was a Cemetery Voodoo tour guided by Gwen which took us into the StLouis Cemetery. I also did a Ghost tour with Ina taking us around the haunted areas in the French Quarter. Both guides were really friendly and enthusiastic. The are true to their... More

Frank, our tour guide was a gracious host. He led the tour during a heavy rain. He shared lots of great facts about the history and current status of the Garden District. The homes were absolutely beautiful. Put this tour on your list of things to do!
