Best tour so far! - We’ve visited New Orleans 4 times and had a tour each time. This was hands down the best and most informative we’ve had. Libby was absolutely fantastic. She’s extremely knowledgeable and started with a foundational history of the land and its original people which was an amazing way to set and understand the stage of the rest of the tour to come. We loved it and feel a deeper understanding and appreciation for the wonderful cultures what make up New Orleans.
