Michael led a really fantastic tour for our group of visiting international students. They were fascinated by the African and Afro-Creole history that he shared. It was exactly the experience we were looking for, and we'll definitely be booking another tour for the same program next year!

He has made our stay wonderful because we see things from a different perspective thanks to him. I would definitely recommend this Tour to ANYONE of ANY race, because he places... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our time touring with Michael of Doubloon Tours. He is extremely knowledgable and gives a five star tour bringing to life the many figures who shaped New Orleans from it's origins to today. This was the best thing we did on our visit!

I took a walking tour of the French Quarter last week with Michael as my tour guide. It was the best decision I made all week. I've been to New Orleans plenty of times before but now I know the history behind what I've been seeing all these years. I am especially grateful to Michael for not cancelling my tour.... More

We traveled daily to interesting & historical places by a very comfortable bus & courteous driver. There were only 24 of us so great size group. At most of the villagdes we went to there was a...

I went with Michael and his wife Veronique on a 10-day tour of the Alsace region of France. To say that this team was delightful and inciteful is an understatement. The tour was so well planned and delivered such value it would be hard to tour with anyone else. If you have a chance to catch a spot on one... More

Michael and Veronique brought our group to Strasberg, France for 12 days. We had a wonderful time. The culture and history of the area was presented to the group be English speaking guides. This was our third trip with Michael and Veronique and certainly look forward the next adventure with them.

Michael and Veronique did an excellent job of planning the 12-day trip for our 30+ group's comfort, learning and travel experiences. Their choice of hotel, sights, tour bus, tour guides, food, etc. were done with knowledge and experience. Merci Michael and Veronique !
