“Walking Encyclopedia of New Orleans Knowledge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Did both the French Quarter and Garden District tours on the same day. Joanne and Sarah were exceptional guides -- spunky, smart and full of great stories. The FQ tour was 1.5 hours and the GD was 2+ hours.

Be sure to tip them well -- I am sure you will agree they earned it. They do have to share the tips with the business owners.

“Made the French Quarter educational and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

The French Quarter is so much more than bars and a party scene, and our tour guide, Joe, did a great job showing us that. He was able to share the history of the area and point out details we never would have noticed without him. Fun and interesting tour. It is a free tour, but obviously they work for tips.

I've been on more expencive tours around New Orleans before, but our guide was so much better (and I feel bad that I forgot his name!!) Very informative and worth money (that you get to pick!)

“FQ Tour January 31st”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We loved this tour. Saw quite a bit in the 2 hours. Never would have been able to do it on our own. Joanne was fabulous. Very knowledgeable and had great insight and recommendations. While there was a lot of history being delivered she did so in a way that was very easy to follow.
