Jannine était super et a fourni de nombreux détails. De plus, on sentait bien qu'elle aurait pu organiser une conférence sur le sujet. Le bonus : Je voyageais seule et elle a sû créer un vrai groupe de visite.
Jannine was great and she gave us incredible details. Furthermore, you could feel that her knowledge could allow her to give a conference on this topic. Big Bonus : I was travelling all by myself and she'd know how to straighten the group feeling.

This was an amazing tour. Bond or you can call her Pocahontas, or travel guide or hey you, she answers to it all was extremely knowledgeable about each stop we went to and only true documented facts. She is in the process of getting her doctorate in New Orleans History and went purely off of the history books and documented/proven stories. She was a creative and fun story teller who knew how to keep the group's attention. If you take this tour, she is the one to go with, request her!

Our guide was so awesome! He was dressed up as a dead Southern lady, it was brilliant. He had the best accent and spoke in a perfectly clear voice so we could hear/understand, and told us some fantastic stories, most of which i took notes of to research later it was that interesting i wanted more! There were MANY stops, i LOVE LOVE LOVE this tour, so many of the other tours going on at the time looked so lame, i was glad we chose the best one.
