Excellent tour guide: DJ. Super knowledgeable and not afraid to let us have it how it is. No turnouts stuff only. Super refreshing. He shared, recommended so much. Starts with a drink, walk tour of French Quarter, come to eat at a small restaurant and sample different meals from New Orleans incl. beignets, another drink, and walk touch up to Frenchmen St. walking was good average paced. Nothing to horrible I would say and I don’t do tons of walking. We had Spiked Irish coffee-cold and it was super delish. Well worth it! Thanx DJ.

I learned a lot from tour guide who told us a lot of stories. It was fun experience and so much drinks to try that he recommend us.

Our tour guide was fabulous. He was both knowledgeable and funny. We had a great time!

DJ was amazing! Very down to earth and full of energy as well!
