What a truly awesome day we had with Dominic. Two brilliant and very different plantations and detours to show us the Garden District and different parts of the surrounding areas. Lovely lunch too. Dominic is hugely knowledgeable, genial and great company, my husband left his phone in the van and Dominic brought it to our restaurant in the evening! Above and beyond! Thank you, hope to see you again some day!

Dominick is one of the most knowledgeable guides I have used from trips all over the world. On our drive to Live Oak Plantation, we asked Dominick so many questions and all were answered with more than just the standard answer. The same was true on the return. We covered not only the topic of plantations but also the changes since Katrina in land and water management as well as education and housing. We will be back in August and will take the Katrina Tour for sure!

Thanks for taking the time to submit s review. It was a pleasure to tour with you. Your many questions made it a better tour, for I believe an open discussion is far better than a scripted narration. I am glad you found the information interesting; I believe it will stay with you for a long time. Hope to see you again. Dominick

Dominick was unavailable, as he is booked way on advance. Dom suggested Hank.
Please know that Hank does a wonderful job as a tour guide. Offering insights and details into history and current life in New Orleans.
Hank is super kind and full of many personal stories of life in NO.
I fully recommend this tour and Hank as your guide, you will not be disappointed.

Hank is a great guide and I am glad that you were flexible enough to have Hank fill for me while I was otherwise occupied. I know Hank was a wealth of information and invited an open discussion rather than a one-sided narration. Thanks for selecting New Orleans Private Tours as your tour company and Hank as your guide. We hope to see you again. Dominick

Oh! Our group of five spent a day with Dominick. We handed him our hope to see plantations and a warning that we would have two 12 year-old with us. We left all details up to him. I'm ready to hand him all my money and let him organize my life.

Casually communicative with a wealth of knowledge, we were at ease immediately. He talked Yugioh with the kids AND had them fascinated with the industry and sociology of the sugar plantations. He had stories of people and places throughout time, and a love of Louisiana history. Obviously, too, he has created good relationships with the employees and volunteers everywhere we went. Altogether, we felt cared for, treated, and brought into his world rather than being part of an tour group looking in from the outside.

Rather than a canned tour on a tight timeline we were blessed with a day of slowing down, absorbing so much new information, being showing the rough and the beautiful. We walked away feeling like favorite family. Best advice: slow down, chew your food, enjoy the ride. For all the depth and care Dominick provides, your dollar couldn't go farther. Just go on, give him your time and your money. He'll be my FIRST call fo my next trip to New Orleans.

You all were fun to be with and I hope New Orleans had its best face on for you. And it was kind of you to notice that we have good working relationships all over the region and those relationships help us serve visitors. Hopefully too you learned something about our history and have a new appreciation for New Orleans in general. I hope to see you again. Thanks, Dominick

Four of us went on the Plantation Driving Tour with Dominick. It was a truly delightful and interesting day. He is extremely knowledgeable about all things New Orleans, and a very pleasant guy to spend the day with, to boot. We all learned something new from Dominick in the course of the day, and had a fabulous lunch with him as well. We highly recommend Dominick's services, and we will definitely contact him again if we return to New Orleans.

We spent a very worthwhile day with Dom Musso touring two of the riverfront Plantations within driving distance of New Orleans. He is well informed in the way that only a highly intelligent native can be, and he shares his knowledge freely in the most pleasant, non-pushy way. Really all you could hope for in a tour guide (he's a good driver and luncheon companion as well!)
We've been coming to New Orleans every couple of years for a while now, and look forward to incorporating one of Dom's tours in our next visit, too!
