We appreciated the knowledge and committment of our guide Barbara who gave us such detailed insights into the geography, history, ecology and culture of this area. It greatly enriched our experienice of New Orleans . The Los Islenos fiesta was intersting for the stories the people told us about thier heritage from the Canary Islands . I was even more impressed by the community projects which continue in St Bernard following the Katrina catastropphe.
The owners/tour guides had obviously done extensive research of historical, environmental, cultural, and other relevant issues prior to the tour in order to best inform and entertain their guests. The tour was well organized and excellently executed. The entire agenda was held to a precise timetable, yet no aspect of the tour felt rushed or under utilized. The tour guides were extremely accommodating and gracious at all times, adding a very personal touch to the tour.
