    Was a fun time! It’s a lot of walking so wear comfy shoes. We parked really far away so check and find a close parking spot unless you want to hike it even farther when your finished. Our guide Graham was great. Was entertaining and knowledgeable. Would recommend the tour. Also we did not walk past any strip clubs or inappropriate areas for children to lay eyes on.

    Great tour of the French Quarter - with the emphasis heavy on the misfits, witches and ne'er do wells of the 19th and early 20th century culture. Our tour guide also pointed out the houses / house fronts used in the filming of several television series such as NCIS New Orleans. Well informed guide - would recommend this tour.

    The tour was awesome, our guide was knowledgeable. His recommendations after the tour was over was also great. I don't mind surveys but having to do a one thousand word essay is not my idea of a good time. If the guide was not so good I would lower the ratings just because of this..... ............ ................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................. ...... . .
