My daughter and I took this tour and loved it! Our guide James was so great! Very informed and really good with the group. I loved how he talked with everyone and made us all feel comfortable and engaged - not like we were just “another group” he had to take around and get it over with. We got a good feel for the History of Voodoo in NOLA. Very interesting. Highly recommend!

They were great! When I made an error on my reservation they took care of it. It was a nice tour and I learned lots of good info. I enjoyed the cemetery tour. Some hang-ups arose in the cemetery (not their fault), and they respectfully and flexibility worked around them. I definitely recommend this tour!!

James was very knowledgeable about the area. He brought local charm and honesty to the tour that made it the best walking tour in New Orleans. We had a small group so it was more one on one. There was a lot of flow for information. He also directed us to a few local gems that were off the beaten path that were incredible!
