Mac was an amazing tour guide! He was so engaging, funny, and informative. The tour was about two hours and was a great way to see the French quarter, learn some early history about the city, and hear lots of fun and eerie ghost stories. Walking tours are all about the tour guide and Mac was fantastic. Okay plus definitely recommend!

Awesome tour by Mary J! She was extremely enthusiastic and so informative! We brought our three kids and two did not want to go at first and then they LOVED the information! Great memories for our family and lots of books to read and things to think about as a result of what we learned. Thank you.

Marie J was awesome. I ended up doing his tour alone as my husband bailed at the last minute. She kept checking up on me. It was in my bucket list to come here and she made extra special by being so passionate and fun. I would do it again myself and will definitely recommend it to my friends and family.
