We liked that this was a smaller group tour as opposed to several others we encountered that morning. Our guide was knowledgeable about history and architecture and the pace was perfect. Our only regret was not getting to the meeting place earlier to sample the fare at District Donuts. That is not to be missed!

Awesome tour! Our tour guide Loki was amazing! He was highly knowledgable about the area and was able to easily answer any question he was asked. He had so many interesting and entertaining stories to tell, there was never a moment of boredom! Loki gave us so much information on the history, culture, and architecture of New Orleans! Definitely a must do!

Great guide Ashton hope I have her name correct. We learned so much about the history of how New Orleans came to be. She also pointed out interesting architectural facts about the design and landscaping of the homes. Things we would never have known if we just self guided. She was also very caring about our comfort as it was a very hot./humid day and we had a few older guests with us. So much information. Again another must do.

Loki our guide was great and gave a lot of personal stories about houses used by movie stars, hauntings, and a disliked Union general. The cemetery tour and burial practices were totally fascinating. Clarifications of the various communities of New Orleans was very enlightening also.
