My husband and I loved this tour and it was by far our favorite. Barbara was a joy and a wealth of information. Go on this tour and fall in love with New Orleans; its history, its humanity, its wildlife and its culture. We did.

Peter is an excellent guide. Well informed, insightful. A highlight of the trip. Great to learn about the natural history, people and environment. From indigenous beginnings and first European settlement to current flood management debates. Loved the bird sightings. Overall, a great experience.
