Ernie is hands down the unofficial Mayor of The French Quarter! He is a lifelong resident of NOLA and EVERYBODY knows him! I took the nighttime tour of the French Quarter, you'll get some spooky stories and lots of history and information about the area. Ernie limits his tour sizes so you wont get stuck in a big crowd like some of the other tours. I happened to be the only guest the night I toured and rather than cancel Ernie and his lovely girlfriend took me on my own tour, introducing me to people along the way like I was an old friend, but I feel like that is how Ernie treats everyone, like an old friend. They made sure I had a ride back to my hotel too. Cant wait to bring my family back!

Ernie was amazing!! It was a little overwhelming with all the different tours offered in the city and trying to figure out the best one to go on. So we turned to a friend who was a long time local. He said "hands down go to Ernie he will not disappoint. " He was not lying! One of the best tours we have ever been on. Dont think twice..just book it :)

Ernie is from there and a former vet with a history degree. He is a wonderful person, friendly, personable and a great smile. We LEARNED a lot. He is local and once your tour is over you really want to treat him to dinner to hear more!!! If only he could spend all day. Thank you Ernie!
