Our guide was Mac and he did a fantastic job of dishing the macabre and history of the French Quarter/New Orleans. It was a very small group but he didn’t cancel or try to put us into another time slot. We loved it and would recommend our guide and this tour group.

Robbie was fantastic. It was fun, interesting and you learn a bit. And you understand NOLA much better. I suggest you do it in the beginning of your stay. It’s the best introduction to New Orleans.

Wendy was a favour tour guide, sassy and full of knowledge! It was fun to learn about the history of the French quarter and the gruesome stories that came along with it.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and funny ! Would recommend this tour to anyone.

Interesting narrations but Keenan anout the macabre history of NOLA .
