Stayed over in New Orleans with my son and his girlfriend on way back to Texas from Orlando trip. We loved the pirate tour - our guide was super knowledgeable and funny! Both my son and I love history and this was a very cool way to learn about the role pirates played in New Orleans history. Highly recommend!!

This was THE best tour we took on the entire vacation. We took 4 tours total and this one was worth every penny and second we spent on it. HiGHLY recommend it. We learned so much about the city and French Quarter in just two hours. The info we got was actual documented research truth and was extremely fascinating. My 19 and 16 year old sons loves it as well! We will be taking this tour again when we return to the city in the future.
