About Racontours
Racontours, New Orleans is a walking tour company dedicated to sharing stories in an immersive Southern experience. Our tours are for story lovers and history buffs alike whose curiosity goes beyond mere linear dates and facts. While we offer 2 tours, we can only provide 1 tour a day on a first come first served basis. Reservations must be made with a minimum 24 hours advance notice. Our Garden District tour is a 6 hour experience that includes a 4 course lunch at the world renowned Commanders Palace! Our Voodoo tour is a 4-5 hour experience which takes place in the French Quarter. It is a fun and touching examination of how this often misunderstood ancient African faith evolved with the residents of the Vieux Carre, into what is now known as New Orleans Voodoo. Each walking tour concludes in an above ground cemetery. Join Racontours and discover the passions, loves, deceits and betrayals, that took place in our garden, below the sea. Thank you for your interest..and get ready to slow your roll!

This was our second tour with Tree; the tour and meal at Commander’s will remain on our must do list when we visit!

If you're looking for a run of the mill, scripted, standardized "one size fits all" tour, you've come to the wrong place. Tree is the best tour guide I've experienced this side of the Mississippi. Hands down. Each tour is customized to what his guests are interested in learning about. There are lots of themed tours already available based on years of research and guiding people around the city. Not seeing a tour description that interests you? Just give them a call and tell them what you want to see / know - they'll make a custom tour for you. We're talking THAT level of customer service. If you want a private tour, just ask. The passion, heart, and personality that Tree brings to each tour will give you a whole new perspective on New Orleans. Entertaining and educational these tours are like getting a fantastic crash course in history and culture that will leave you talking and thinking for days to come. Bring your walking shoes and an eager brain - this is not a tour company with which you can just "come along for the ride". A "must do" when you're in NOLA. We will continue to take a Racontour every time we visit!

Tree is an exceptional Guide and Terrific Person. Friendly and informative, filled with History and Stories. For a true NOLA experience, there is no other Guide that can give you a true feel for the Crescent City. A walk through the Garden District, learning about NOLA history, it's origins, challenges, strife, and successes, makes one feel like a part of it all. I could listen to Tree all day and felt sad leaving after our wonderful Brunch at Commander's Palace. Can;t wait to comeback for the voodoo tour Happy Mardi Gras

Excellent tour guide...the best in New Orleans. Tree (that is the tour guide's name) has an excellent historical knowledge of the city and culture. He can structure your tour to your interests or cover all the interesting places from the French Quarter to the Garden District. Enjoy your time in New Orleans.

My 80 year old mother had always wanted to visit the Crescent City and it just so happened that i was able to fly her down during a business trip. I had taken a couple of tours with Tree previously and thought there couldn't be a better way for her to experience this incredible city. Our schedule was not very flexible and she only had a day to take a tour.....a day in which Tree had not planned on offering tours. I didn't know this when I reached out to him. I knew it would be difficult to spend much time with her because of work obligations but could not imagine that I could leave her in better hands, When I finished up with work and went to pick up my mom, I realized that he had committed to spending the entire day with her......just the two of them. Unbelievable. She had such an amazing time and will never forget this experience. She said that her lunch with him at Commanders Palace made her feel like royalty....and family. There are other tours out there....sure... But there is only ONE TREE....and his are tours that you will never forget. He is the gem and i am so grateful.
