Our guide, Adam, was very informative, well spoken and entertaining.
Guide was very knowledgeable about various aspects of culture, history, and legends of the area along the tour.
The guide was very knowledgeable.
Adam, the tour guide, was excellent. Very informative and sensitive to the weather conditions: heat, humidity, etc. Excellent, wry sense of humor and willing to answer all questions. Well worth the money.
Adam was great, knowledgeable and friendly. We had lots of fun learning about the history of the cemeteries and how they are run and maintained.
My tour guide Adam knew exactly what he was talking about and gave a really great tour. I am disappointed in the fact he left us behind because he didn't know that we were suppose to be apart of his tour. There was some error in the fact he was supposed to have two more people on his tour which he didn't know about. It was a really great tour and my tour guide was awesome - I'm just sad at having to find my way to the tour guide and the cemetery myself
He answer all are questions and was very friendly and new his stuff we had a good time .
She has very knowledgeable and kept the overall tour2interesting. We had a lot of fun on this tour. Probably our favorite memory from the city
Friendly crew- smooth flight.
Judy was our tour guide and she was the best. So informative and funny, had a great time.
This was a fantastic tour! Our guide, Judy Geddes Bajoie was a phenomenal source of history and great company. We hung on every word and didn't even mind the heat.
Our guide was fun and very informative. I really enjoyed his tour!
We had a great time! Judy was beyond knowledgeable. We will recommend her to anyone visiting NOLA.
My mom and I ended up having a private tour with Adam in the afternoon. He was incredibly informative, passionate and was an absolute pleasure! The best tour we took on our trip.
Judy was an amazing guide. Love the history in New Orleans.
We went on the cemetery and voodoo tour on 3/18/2017 (morning). We were very impressed with how knowledgeable our tour guide was. He deserves a raise. We learned a lot and had a great time....we highly recommend
Great tour guide
Judy was an amazing tour guide! She not only knew so well what she was talking about, she really accommodated us with our time constraints! Highly recommend her to anyone. She speaks fast, but is very understandable and provides history via story which makes it fascinating to hear about! She is very well connected in the community and has a broad knowledge base. She loves history and it shows! She is very personable and I would highly recommend her for this tour and any others she does. I felt like I could listen to her all day long.
Adam was a great tour guide. Answered a lot of questions for the group and had great info. He made sure we saw some specific interests for the group.
The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and willing to discuss every detail. It was very cold and hard to concentrate and the tour guide talked very fast and was hard for my wife to understand everything. We would have liked to spend more time looking around the cemetery, but we understand why it has to be a bit of a rush.
Adam was very knowledgeable! Coming from Texas I had NO clue of the history other than what I read in school or seen on TV documentaries. He really opened my interest on learning more. It was super interesting! I'd recommend this tour AND Adam anytime!
Adam had a rapid yet clear speaking pattern that gave us so much more information than would be covered normally in that tour length. He was so knowledgeable and consider of questions that I felt not only guided but embraced by his generous willingness to share.
Our tour guide was awesome! He was super funny and very informative!! We could ask him anything and he always had an answer!!
I am interested in Voodoo, so selected this tour. Tour Guide Miss Judy is very unique. Very satisfied. But about Voodoo, only looked Mary's house and cemetery..
Judy was our tour guide and she was amazing! She shared a lot history from NOLA with us, had a great time! HIGHLY recommended!!
Tour guide was
Judy is full of knowledge and so passionate about her job! She made the tour absolutely amazing. We had done a tour the previous day and it was awful. We went in feeling very negative and within a few mins we knew we were going to have a great time. Thanks Judy for teaching us about the history and having a great time!!
Very knowledgeable tour guide. Learned so much about the cemeteries, Voodoo culture, and New Orleans!
Very informative tour with a guide who was fun
I kind of expected a little bit more, but our tour guide Steve was great and very informative. Very interesting.
Judy is the best!
Our guide Judy was punctual at the meeting point. She was very knowledgeable and gave us a great tour and lots of information at the lafayette cemetary. She also took the time to answer our questions. Thanks Judy!
