“Fun Times!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

This tour is a great way to get some interesting history about the city of New Orleans. Our tour guide Jeffrey has some great stories and is very knowledgeable about the city. If you are looking for a unique experience, definitely take this tour. You won't regret it.

“If there is one thing you do in N'awlins...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

It's this tour. My soon to be wife and I arrived off our plane from Philadelphia and made our way into the city this last Thursday. Rather than check into our hotel, we opted to take this tour that she booked the night before. Unfamiliar with the city and a bit apprehensive, we made our way to the meeting point anxiously awaiting the arrival of our guide. Now, enter Jeffery, politely informing us that we were the only ones booked for that time and giving us a welcoming smile with a "Welcome to the City I love." What occurred over the next hour and a half made these travel weary tourists feel like long time residents of the big easy. From the history of the city, to stories about Tennessee Williams (which made my lady swoon), to learning the true meaning of Zepplin's Royal Orleans, I was thoroughly impressed. He was engaging, articulate, and had one hell of a sense of humor. It was worth every penny, and now with a free evening, we look forward to their ghost tour this evening. Thank you for making this a trip to remember.

“A most wonderful time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013 via mobile

Great guide, great tour, one of the best we have ever been on. Jeffrey is a font of New Orleans history - and knows the facts behind the legends. He is a lovely guy, and has done his research. We weren't looking for some tourist trap outfit, where you magically appear at vendors who are connected with the guides. We wanted a view of the real New Orleans, and Jeffrey opened our eyes to the color, the characters (and some conspiracy!) that make this place so special. Highly highly recommended.
