I wasn't originally gonna do this tour, but I'm sure glad I did! Melissa was really nice & friendly, and knew a lot of legends of everything we saw. I highly recommend it!

Took the tour with Sandy, she was very professional and super funny. Walked around the french quarter for about an hour and a half, it was very interesting and fun despite the almost unbearable heat. Thank you Sandy!

We signed up for a Garden District tour with Sarah, who is a force of nature when she's reeling off all those colourful tales about New Orleans life past and present! Incredible energy, a really entertaining guide and the time just flew by.

Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give
