Excellent tour

Our tour guide Elliot was fun and very knowledgeable. The tour exceeded our expectations. Every question was answered and we had more ideas of what we were interested in visiting for the next couple of days. Tour groups were small enabling us to hear everything and interact with our guide. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Great little walking tour in FQ!

Josh was a great tour guide who told fun stories and history about the French Quarter. Nice little tour and recommended for people first time visiting FQ. Josh also mentioned food spots/bars from his local experience, so always great to get insights from a local. Pleasant day in late November so weather was perfect. Probably wouldn't do a walking tour if it was too humid / muggy outside. thank you Josh!

My husband and I had a great time with Eliot. We were thrilled that he incorporated items of interest to us and made sure to keep us in the shade when possible due to the increased heat throughout the walking experience.
