The tour guide was invested in teaching the group about the city. Grab a bite as you walk and learn about the French quarters, fun facts, and changes the area went through the centuries. We loved it and recommend it. I don’t recollect our guides name. Will update the feedback

Enjoyed the tour overall. Went to wrong meeting area as this was confusing to us and others on the tour who were late. Guide was knowledgeable and personable. Was a bit hot so tour was more basic and toned down than some others. Good information on the history and area.

Really enjoyed this walk. Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining and obviously loves New Orleans. She took us into places not generally accessible such as the theatre and into courtyards we wouldn't have known about. Well worth doing.
