The docent passionate and extremely knowledgeable about his subject. The tour guides are required to take classes, pass tests and be certified. They are volunteers. This is a man who loves his adopted city and wants to share that with those taking the tours. The tours are either up-river tours of the French Quarter or down-river tours of the French Quarter so you will not get a tour of both areas in one. The one we took was an up-river tour and we were informed on the history of the city's development, architectural details and personal stories. The tour was supposed to last 2 hours and lasted 2 1/2 hours.
My only complaint is that the tour included complementary tickets to the 1850 house but we took the tour on a Monday and it is closed on Monday. Had that been clear I might have arranged my schedule differently. The tickets could be used another day but I had only one day left and we were fully booked the next day so I was unable to use them.
