    So! We booked multiple tours with this company bc after research (the research was right!) we learned this company is the most personable helpful considerate patient and very attentive to their guests The owner treated me like we were friends immediately, yet she knew how to also be professional. I texted Ashli (the owner and she is a tour guide too) on her personable number which is available publicly and she was spot on with all the information she provided and provided consistent assistance 24/7. She was the sweetest! She helped with information that didn’t even pertain to the tours we booked with them she helped me with everything down to dinner reservations which were all amazing btw. 😂 this tour was great fun even with covid 19 restrictions we enjoyed ourselves! I felt very lucky to have the guide and the perks with this tour bc most travellers at the time of Mardi Gras weekend weren’t even allowed to get drinks from bars. This tour provided us the perks that those other travellers didn’t receive and it made us feel like VIP’s! The tours were small which also made it more fun bc we felt important and had all the information that the tour contained plus on top of that we were able to ask questions easily. I highly recommend this company. Small businesses are always the way to go especially when you get the special attentive treatment that this company provides. Call or text Ashli and tell her Ashleigh sent you! She will be amazing I promise and provide you a tour or multiple tours if you choose to go on multiple tours that you will consider your favorite part of your trip. Thanks Ashli for making our trip so memorable. You are the best.

    About an hour or so before our tour, we got notification via text that it was supposedly cancelled but listed a different time than that of the booking. So, we reached out for clarification to no avail and waited at the spot at the time but nobody ever called/messaged us back nor showed. We were interested in a rescheduled tour but like I said, no response back from anyone. A few days later and we still haven't received our refund even though it shows "Completed" on Viator.

    Good experience. My family have fun dressing up the MADRI GRAS style. I only wish that they give us more time to dress up and take pictures. 15 minutes is not enough. And also to make more selection, separate the guys from ladies. So that it’s easier to pick up your choice to wear
