Dominick Musso is the best tour guide that I've ever seen. His knowledge of New Orleans is simply unsurpassed, including the history of the city, how the city has prepared itself for future hurricanes and excellent restaurant recommendations, including Tableau and GW Fins, 2 of the best restaurants in the French Quarter.

We were so pleased with our two, half-day tours with Dominick. Because of COVID-19, we were unable to do a driving tour with him, but he did an excellent job of adapting his tour. He contacted us by phone and email in the weeks before our visit to keep us updated on what was open and making sure he could show us the things we wanted to see. He grew up in New Orleans, and he has boundless knowledge about the history, people, geography, and sites. We would highly recommend him for your private tour.

Thanks so much for the kind words. Thanks also for your patience with the COVID tour modifications. Guidelines are changing all the time right now and attraction options are limited and I appreciate your flexibility, allowing us to stay within the city-mandated guidelines. I hope your trip was an informative one. I appreciate the fact that you chose New Orleans to visit and me as your guide. Stay safe during your travels. Baseball starts this week!

I decided to do this tour less than 24 hours before the start time, Dominick made this tour fit our timeline. Dominick was wonderful and even picked us up at our hotel. He was early for pick up. His van was very clean. He has lived in NOLA most of his life and truly loves this city. We saw so many things that I had never heard of in my 20 years of coming here. His knowledge of NOLA is endless. If you want to get a complete history of the city and see things most dont ever think about this is the tour for you. From history of how the city was first built to why the Garden District exists, we covered it all through maps, pictures, and his long history here in NOLA. Our only complaint is we did not have more time with him. I need to spend three days with him! It was a great way to spend a wonderful evening with a new friend. We will be back! If you love history and amazing conversation you will not be disappointed.

Christmas in New Orleans has become a destination for many families. People often think New Orleans is an adult town, but find that we are more family-oriented than expected, particularly during all holidays. Thanks for selecting me to be your guide. Dominick
