Guide was great as was the cemetery tour, the guides knowledge was great. the reason for the star being knocked off is that i would have liked more time in the cemetery which was taken up by the waiting for a slot to enter the cemetery.
Really enjoyed the tour. Our guide was great. Was expecting a bit more voodoo content.
Brie was enchanging and seemed to like her job. All was good except the discussion about Katrina. The tour was mainly older people (40 to 70) and being lectured by a young girl on reaching out to loved ones or friends was not appropriate. She meant well but she went to the point of lecturing. We want to know about New Orleans and its history. Including Katrina disaster is good but she spent too much time on her loved ones. I was really hoping to have the Voodoo Bone lady provide the tour so that is also part of my disappointment. I had shared with my friends how wonderful of a story teller Voodoo Bone lady is and wanted them to experience it with me. Brie requires a bit more training and knowledge to enhance her storytelling. I would still book another tour with your company but wanted to provide useful feedback. Voodoo Bone Lady we tried to stop in for a reading by the shop was closed and we saw no business hours.

Bree was very knowledgable and entertaining.
Brie was an excellent and enthusiastic tour guide who really brought to life the history of New Orleans. It was a great way to walk through the French quarter and a cemetery and learn a bunch along the way. Brie's personal touch in her tour made it better than I could have hoped for.
Our tour guide Brie was very informative and I we learned a lot about New Orleans. We are looking forward to coming back and taking another tour to learn more.
our tour guide Brie was amazing! she was very informative and made the tour fun and enjoyable.
WAY too long!
Fabulous tour guide- Brie. Learned a lot and had a great experience!
Great tour and Bree was nice and knowledgeable. I was hoping that there would be more said about Voodoo.
The tour guide was very good and we learned a lot about the city It was truly a great experience
The tour was convenient and well planned. Our guide was friendly and had some good facts but it was clear she had just learned what to say from being trained. In other words, you can tell when the guide loves to learn about a city and then loves to share that knowledge. Our time in the cemetery was limited and that should be stated up front.
Our tour guide Bri was awesome - she is amazing at her job and really made it fun and interesting!
Our tour guide, Brian, was AWESOME! I thought the tour ran a little long though. I would stay in the actual cemetery for maybe 30 minutes
Did the Cemetary and Haunted tours. Both were fantastic and both Michael and Brian are outstanding tour guides. We learned sooo much. Highly reccommended.
The guide was Brie and she was fantastic and enthusiastic. We all loved her. We learned so much about New Orleans that we never knew-so much more than just the cemetery!! We will recommend this tour to anyone as a great way to understand that NOLA is way more than just Bourbon Street!
Great your guide, Mike. Informative, friendly and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Brie was awesome! She was knowledgeable, fun and personable.
We had the best tour guide , Michael! He was funny, engaging, and extremely informative and knowledgeable about the city's history. I will recommend this tour and especially Michael to any friends I know who heaf to New Orleans! Thank you for a great time!
Bri was great!!!! this tour was really cool. didnt take too long but we learned alot about the city!
Our guide was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and very entertaining.
Brian was awesome
Michael was friendly and knowledgeable. It was a highlight of our trip!
We were lucky to have Michael as a guide on this tour. He was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and engaging. During the walks from point to point, he was sure to get to know us and answer additional questions. The tour was lengthy, but didn't feel like it took so much time because we were engaged and entertained the entire duration. I would recommend this tour to others!
Michael was great, he made the tour seem very person. He was informative while still being very personable.
I need more stars - the tour was amazing. The historical context Michael gave us was great - he was awesome. I wish he could lead every tour we ever take.
Brie was a great guide. ENJOYED VERY MUCH.
We were in town for a bachelorette party and went on the cemetery tour with our guide Michael. He was the best guide I've had of the 3 walking tours I've been on in Nola. He spoke loudly and clearly (even in the pouring rain), was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and stopped us strategically to try to keep us dry and safe when crossing the road. He also was very good about giving us a heads up on what we were doing next. He also had good jokes along the way. Can't say enough good things about this tour company. Just go with them and you won't regret it.
Bri was very informative, full of positive energy and upbeat. She openly shared her experiences living in New Orleans , along with great knowledge of architecture, the cemetery and multicultural mix that creates the Big Easy. I highly recommend this tour with Bri!
The guide was upbeat, well informed and very likeabke. Loved our tour!
Very happy with the tour guide Brione! She was delightful! The information about history, culture, architecture on the way to the Cemetery, was invaluable, and in addition, she was able to give insightful and first hand information on the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the people and culture. The Cemetery tour was great, and full of interesting anecdotes as well as information! So glad we picked this tour!
Michael was fantastic! This is a walking tour! You will do a fair amount of walking...I don't recall that bit of info on the web site when I booked the tour but our tour guide made the sore feet worth the pain. Wear comfy shoes!
Great tour! Exceeded expectations and Michael was very knowledgeable!
Tour guide Bri was the best! Super Genuine!
Brian was great. Lots of tour groups at the same time. Good tour but would have been great with less 'traffic'.
Amazing tour! Bri was the best! Very friendly and knowledgeable and entertaining!
Michael was a great guide! A great storyteller: funny, animated and informative! It was a great cemetery tour. I'll have to take the 5in1 next time!
I took two of your tours yesterday, and had an incredible time!!! Michael, my tour guide was excellent!! Not only was he knowledgeable and a great storyteller, he was very friendly and humorous. I will definitely take your tours again with my daughter on my next trip to New Orleans!! Thank you so much Voodoo Bone Lady! Also, thank you Michael for such wonderful tours!!!!
Brian was a great tour guide. So knowledgeable and passionate about his city and the rich history. Loved this tour!
Very knowledgable staff as well as entertaining. They didn't just list off facts they told stories as well as engaged the audience and kept us all wanting to hear more
Michael was outstanding! Knowledgable, funny and you can tell he truly loves what he does. It was so much fun and I learned so much more about this incredible city!
Bre was awesome and funny!! Good story teller!! She was great to talk to about New Orleans itself too! Because of her we got a great spot for the parades!
