Our guide was Mac and he did a fantastic job of dishing the macabre and history of the French Quarter/New Orleans. It was a very small group but he didn’t cancel or try to put us into another time slot. We loved it and would recommend our guide and this tour group.

This tour was awesome! Our guide Rob made the experience what it was, with his personality and knowledge we learned so much.. not only about the ghosts and voodoo but about the culture and history of NOLA and we had a great time doing it! I definitely recommend this tour.. I hope you get Rob!!

My tour guide Mac was super nice, engaging and informative, kept a good pace and kept the group quiet and interested. I love the route we took, although I wish we could’ve got a little closer to Lafitte (the festival taking place crowded the quarter a bit). Other than that everything was amazing.
