Thomas was a fabulous tour guide who kept us entertained and enthralled the entire time. A very small group (only 4) meant that we were able to interact with the other people on the tour and also with Thomas. We passed several other tour groups...More

Jennifer was our guide. She's knowledgeable, funny and well worth the tour price. This is the lady to ask for if you want to hear all the gritty stuff associated with this place.

A group of 10 of us participated in the cemetery tour. It was wonderful and Brian (our guide) was AWESOME. Easy to get along with and he knew A LOT. We really enjoyed our time and getting to know him and NOLA.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

October is our busiest time of year, and we do keep our group sizes small so that both our patrons and the guess can enjoy a nice tour without disrupting the quality of life for the residents of the French Quarter.
