Delicious drinks, lots of laughter, a unique historical perspective of NOLA. We had a great time exploring the French quarter and learning about how the cocktails are intertwined with the various locations.

About a mile. But you stop so often that really doesn't feel like it. The pacing is good and she is very accommodating.
