Great tour guide!

This tour was very informative and entertaining mostly because of our guide Jane. She was not only extremely knowledgeable but also funny and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour. And, this tour provides a senior discount while others do not

Great tour

Jane was our guide and was very knowledgeable about the history of NOLA, as well as an engaging story teller. She made the tour fun, memorable, and a learning experience. Great context provided about the neighborhood, as well as the history.

Excellent tour

Our guide was Frank (not positive on the name as we went days ago). But, he is a retired professor, born and raised in NOLA. The tour was informative, engaging, and overall great. Would recommend to any family/friends/colleagues.

Thank Jen_137C
