During a tough time given the virus situation I was lucky enough to have Josh give me a tour through the French Quarter. This was an amazing tour as Josh is extremely knowledgeable, polite and accommodating. He knows exactly how to host a great tour and I enjoyed having him as

Thanks for taking the time to review your French Quarter tour with Josh! The last days before the stay-at-home orders were uncertain, so I am glad that you got to see the French Quarter before you hunkered down. It is such a lovely neighborhood, so historic and interesting, and Josh is an excellent guide. Please come again when the world returns to normal - we will be so happy to walk the quaint streets of the old neighborhood again! Libby

Even a global pandemic can't suppress Loretta's energetic spirit! She is always so accommodating to her guests because she genuinely wants them to fall in love with this awesome city just like she has! I'm so happy that you were able to squeeze in a tour of the beautiful French Quarter before we had to stay inside, and I am glad Loretta made you feel safe. We will still be here when this is over, and we hope to walk and talk with you again. In the meantime, enjoy those pictures! Libby

Thanks for taking TWO Lucky Bean tours and for this excellent and detailed review! I am so happy that you appreciated the pre-tour text, small group, and interesting information we provide. As I write this, we are all locked away in our homes due to the pandemic and I assure you we are spending our hours reading, researching, and stockpiling even more great stories to tell our guests when we get to walk the streets of our beloved city again! Loretta is an enthusiastic ambassador of New Orleans, embodying the spirit of generosity, energy, and humor that makes New Orleans so alluring and endearing to so many visitors. See you next time!
