Carlo was the perfect tour guide. He had detailed knowledge accumulated as a lifelong resident of the area and an experienced tour guide. He also is a gifted storyteller. One gets the clear sense that Carlo really loves New Orleans. His idea of a great vacation is to take time off as a guide to immerse himself in Mardi Gras! This was not a tired, mechanically narrated tour. This was someone telling a love story!
