Impressive and moving tour of the “hidden history” of the French Quarter. Highly recommended. This is a tour that will stay with you long after you leave NOLA.

This tour got beyond the normal description of architecture and dug into the less discussed history of New Orleans. We very much enjoyed it and learnt a lot at the same time. Highly recommend.

The Whitney Plantation tells the story of plantation history through the eyes of African-American slaves. The knowledge, speaking skill, and emotional resonance of our African-American tour guide were impressive and moving.
