Had a great time on the tour with our guide and he told us some interesting stories of the French Quarter. It is a lot or walking but very doable. Parking is always a nightmare there (pardon the pun) but a movie was filming nearby and that made it worse. One of the places where I took some pictures, the scene of mass murders decades ago, not one of the pictures came through on my phone camera. All the others that night were fine and they hadn't been deleted because I never delete photos. I wonder if some of the spirits wanted to be left alone!

This was a great experience. Mary Jane was an excellent tour guide. I loved her enthusiasm and knowledge as we went through our tour.

James was amazing and it was so fun! He was so knowledgeable and had great suggestions and lovely advice! He made our day!

Robbie Rob was a great guide with amazing stories and knowledge of history!
