“Top of to-do list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

The walking tour of the Garden District we went on with Sarah as our guide was one of (if not THE) best things we did in New Orleans. She was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a new appreciation for the city, which we started to understand from a local's point of view. She was patient with our many many questions and was full of funny and interesting anecdotes to temper the wealth of historical facts. It was more than we could have hoped for, and we HIGHLY recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning more about the city rather than experiencing it just superficially. There's no obligation to pay a set amount, but you'll be so grateful for this amazing tour you'll want to give everything you have.

“Great tour with Melissa!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Melissa did a great tour with the ghost tour. She was very knowledgeable about the city and added some of her own personal experiences with ghosts. Very fun and I would definitely go on another tour again.

“3 Tours - Every one different and enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Went on three tours with this company and enjoyed every one. My first tour was a ghost tour with Joanne. I felt bad as it was freezing and only three of us showed up. She didn't cancel and gave us a great tour, you can tell she really loves what she does. Also had a tour with Kate and Sarah, it is great to see the city with people who truly love it.

“Enthusiastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We did he French Quarter, The Ghost tour and the Garden District and Cemetary tour. All of the tours were excellent. The booking service and directions were also very good. Unfortunately, I would not recommend these tours for wheelchairs or strollers. The sidewalks are in bad condition. I was touring with two teenage girls who were not at all bored, they really enjoyed the tours as much as I did.
