Great French Quarter and Garden District tours!
Jul 2021
We did the French Quarter walking tour with David and the Garden District walking tour with another guide whose name I can't recall, and both were excellent! We learned so much and really enjoyed the tours. Both guides were phenomenal. Each of our guides teaches (or taught) college courses in addition to conducting tours, and it really showed, as they were able to educate while also being entertaining and holding our attention. They had a very thorough knowledge of the city and we didn't have any questions they were unable to answer. We were interested in the role of New Orleans in the development of jazz, and even though we weren't on the music tour David made sure to weave this into our tour as well. I appreciated the authenticity of the tour, that they told the real story of New Orleans instead of relying on sensationalism. These were some of the most professional and interesting tours I have ever been on, and are worth every penny.

Leonce was mine and my friends tour guide and let me tell you...! He was such a charmer! He was informative, patient, and the knowledge he held!!! He knows how to captivate you and makes you want to delve more into the history of the beautiful and cultural city of New Orleans! I love that our tour was given to us by a native of the state, both born and raised. If you really want to learn about the history of New Orleans and The French Quarter, do yourself a favor and sign up for this tour and ask for Leonce! You will thank me later.
