I learned so much from Judy! I had hoped to hear the history of New Orleans that spanned the centuries of its diverse inhabitants and that didn’t gloss over the atrocities of slavery and the injustices that followed. Judy delivered! She also shared the accomplishments, triumphs and inventiveness of the great people that called the French Quarter home, Judy was also very accommodating in arranging for the tour.

My partner and I had the best time on our Black History Tour of the French Quarter with Judy. So much so that we went over almost an hour and didn't realize it. We loved every minute and will be touring with Judy again.

Judy is AMAZING!! My husband and I did the three in one tour through the French Quarter, discussed free people of color, and Plessy v Ferguson. Judy is a wealth of knowledge. She will give you the REAL history of New Orleans, not sugar coated. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to dive into NOLA history or just have fun!! Besides her knowledge, Judy is also incredibly charming and funny. WE LOVE JUDY! She really goes the extra mile in every way imaginable. I am grateful we had this experience and cannot wait to return to New Orleans to take another Tour by Judy. 😊
