I had a private walking tour with Jane on 1/2/20 focused on the women on the city which was super awesome. She’s super friendly And personable and gave me an abundance of information and history on some of the most important female figures of New Orleans. We covered several blocks and made stops at certain landmarks or places of significance to discuss what she knew. Jane also personally owns many artifacts and documents related to the tour topics so that’s great too. Our tour was booked for 2 hours but she stayed with me for 3 hours as there was just so much to cover- I really appreciated that. I strongly recommend contacting her for a great tour while in town.

This tour was amazing! I would recommend it to anyone man or woman. Jeff knew all about the tough, strong women that made New Orleans into the thriving place it is today. He is an excellent guide, and I would recommend any of his tours to anyone visiting New Orleans. Jeff has studied the history of New Orleans extensively and truly cares about your personal experience in NO.

IT was a very entertaining tour, and the guide, Jeffrey, had clearly done his research. Learned a lot about about the history of the city.
