New Orleans during Mardi Gras was a bucket list item for me. My wife booked the tours. How she found Tim I'm not sure but I'm glad she did. Our tour of the French Quarter with him was great. We were his only clients for...More

Thanks to Tim Chauvin we had a fascinating tour of the French Quarter and around the area. This was not an average tour. His knowledge of the area, the buildings, and restaurants, etc was incredible. His laid-back style makes for a relaxed experience. I love...More

I enjoyed my French Quarter morning tour with Tim. While he’s been a guide for years, he just started his own company. I was the only person booked that morning so I got my own personal tour, which was nice. I appreciate that he didn’t...More

The title doesn’t do justice because it’s not just about the Garden District. Tim has an in-depth knowledge of the history and culture of NOLA and puts things in context. The tour is very accessible for people who want a fun interesting tour and want...More

Our guide, Dave, was very informative. He gave the history of the area with a lot of insight. There is no stopping for a bathroom break. The tour finishes at the same starting point. Just be careful while walking - all the sidewalks were broken...More

Couldn’t have had a better guide introduce us to the incredible French Quarter on our first day in NOLA. Tim is knowledgeable, articulate, filled with fun and interesting facts. Two hours passed quickly and we walked away with our heads filled with writers, cocktails, pirates,...More

We loved our tour of the upper garden district with Tim. He knows practically everyone and there is something interesting on almost every block. We especially loved the cemetery part.

We loved our tour through the garden district with Tim (Chauvin). He knew the history--both past and present--of the area. We forgot how much we enjoyed American history. Made the New Orleans area come alive. Highly recommend this tour.

Central Business District
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other

offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
