Our guide was friendly and gave us some interesting facts, but we felt it was mostly advertising for things and places he recommended. We had already done a walking tour of the French Quarter so much of his information was not new to us. Furthermore, if I had known we couldn’t go into the Cemetery, I would not have booked the tour. Pretty much a disappointment for our group.

We had an awesome tour with James as he narrated the history of New Orleans ( the good and the bad parts). He s passionate about the city you can tell and it’s always great to have a local narrator. The weather was perfect The city was very crowded though fir the long weekend and parking was a pain!

The tour was really good and we enjoyed it! It was no fault of the guide's, but due to COVID we did not get to experience a lot of the tour in perhaps the way it was originally intended. I would say a majority of the tour was the guide talking about his own life rather than talking about the history of the things at which we were looking.
