The tour was disappointing. The weather was unfortunately unseasonably cold, the group was larger than expected and the information probably factually correct but generally a bit dull.

Great Location, knowledgeable guide, perfect introduction to the Quarter

The guide, Josh, was excellent, knowledgeable, and hit the high points in our two hour stroll through the French Quarter. Maybe a bit too much time on Katrina but we had heard a lot about it the day before on our paddle boat cruise on the Creole boat. Particularly enjoyed the history of the Ursuline nuns as well as the focus on architecture and some of the unique structures in the Quarter. A must see/do for anyone seeing New Orleans for the first time.

Seeing new places, historical background stories shared, and other places to see while we are here. The rich history of some of the buildings and people.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Thank you! That is a great word for the culture we have here - "rich." The city obviously isn't wealthy by typical standards, but our culture, traditions, history, and passion is priceless. We are so happy to be allowed to show visitors why we are privileged to call New Orleans home. Please come explore more of this special place again! Libby

We had a wonderful time with a great guide who really knew his history, both of the world and New Orleans specifically.

Thanks for this review! All of us here at Lucky Bean Tours love New Orleans - that is obvious. But fitting New Orleans' history into World history and American History is where connections are made and "aha" moments produced. It's like adding another piece into a huge puzzle. I am so happy that you enjoyed your walk through the oldest of our fascinating neighborhoods, and we all look forward to showing you around next time. Libby
