    Our tour guide Harold was very knowledgeable, articulate and passionate about the history of New Orleans. Lucky for us, my Wife and I were the only customers on this occasion, so it became basically a private, one one one tour!

    This tour was the best tour week took our entire trip. Explained and answered so many of our questions. All things we value to know visiting a new city. Our guide was passionate about NOLA, and was a joy to be with. Unlike other tours, he spoke at a pace easy to digest and was so sincere and attentive.

    An amazing tour, there was so much to hear, learn and experience, really makes you understand how special New Orleans is. Ann Morcos, our guide, told us an interesting story for almost every building along the way. I couldn't have imagined a better way to get introduced to this wonderful city!

    The whole tour was incredibly well conceptualized, it was fun, engaging and wonderful to see and hear. Our guide was Ann Morcos, and she took us around the whole French quarter and had a story to tell about every little corner. It is the small details that made that tour unforgettable. Thank you Ann!
