“A Fun & Inexpensive Walking Tour”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

I love taking walking tours. Its a great way to feel the flavor of a city and see more sights not accessible by car or bus. Our guide was Scully and he was awesome!! We did the garden district and cemetary tour. Scully was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the facts he presented. It was a great way to learn about New Orleans and the culture of the city. Scully brought waters for the group which was very nice. The sights covered are really good as well. Do it!!!

“Free Tour by Foot”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

I highly recommend to you to schedule a Free Tour by Foot when you visit New Orleans. I was able to schedule a Garden District/LaFayette Cemetery tour for my husband and I. Scully, the tour guide, was extremely easy to spot by the white wall. I had two or three emails communicated to me prior to our tour from Scully.
Scully was funny and interacted with the crowd through out the trip. All of Scully's facts along the tour were factual. He knew a lot of information and shared pictures throughout the tour.
We stayed in the downtown area and we paid $3.00 for an all-day pass for the streetcar/bus transportation. The Garden District was easily accessible from downtown/French Quarter area.

“Good Tour”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

We went on the Ghost Tour and it was pretty good. Our guide was very knowledgeable and super friendly and she looked out for the safety of her customers (keeping people out of the street).

The only thing I wish was included in the tour is actually going into a few of the haunted places to see where things have happened.

Overall it was a good experience.
