Wonderful guide, wonderful historical commentary, good pacing, great sites. All you want from a historical tour and more!
Andrea, our guide was fabulous! She was very knowledgeable on the tour and made the whole trip enjoyable.
Rob was interesting, very knowledgeable, and was able to answer each question. Could have learned from him for another hour at least. Locations shared were well chosen. Left with a better understanding and appreciation for NOLA history and culture. Will recommend this tour whenever we have the opportunity. We understood that we would be seeing a voodoo temple and learning a bit about that religion. Missed it.
Very knowledgeable guide
David was a great guide!
Our guide was knowledgeable and enjoyable . Answered all of our questions. Did volunteer work at LASPCA. We like people who volunteer so we were biased.
Our guide was great
Ina was a once in a lifetime tour guide. She setup every step of the tour seamlessly starting with overalls history, key historic figures, important landmarks, and ended with tying it altogether in New Orleans most notable cemetery. I learned so much on this tour and couldn't recommend using Historic New Orleans Tours enough. Ina is seriously the best.
Very interested in the history of burials and voodoo
Tour guide, Ina, was extremely knowledgable. She provided a lot of background information about the history of New Orleans.
I went on Frommer’s recommendation that you had reliable and historically accurate guides and to use a locally owned business as well. I couldn’t be more happy with the choice.
It was very interesting and the tour guide is very nice.
David was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and entertaining.
Our guide was amazingly knowledgeable and it was one of my favorite things we did on our trip. The only thing I would change if possible is I wish the tour met at the cemetery or closer to it. The ten minute walk to the cemetery felt like a waste of time - there wasn’t really anything to point out and we were essentially walking through a construction site. Also for those of us driving in, there’s a parking lot at the visitor center next to the cemetery that makes it much more conviement than walking all the way to the cafe and back
The guide, Dave, was friendly and took the time to answer questions. He was informative.
Ms. Gwen was wonderful!
Milton was very knowledgeable about NOLA history. The tour was entertaining and informative.
