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.

Frank was a good tour guide. As a native of New Orleans, he knew the details of every story and threw in other tidbits I'd bet other tour guides aren't aware of. He does his research and it shows in the vividness of his tales! makes for a great tour! highly recommend him.

Loved this tour! We took the 8 pm tour. The guide, Melissa, was great! She was friendly, and knowledgeable, and had so many wonderful stories to tell us, as she guided us through the French Quarter. I definitely think the being after dark, added a little spookiness.

This was the best tour we took!!! If you can, ask for Skip - he was an awesome guide and the way he spoke about the history of everything we saw was as if he had experienced it himself. You might want to take notes as you're walking the tour so you can remember key points to reference with your pictures.
