I booked 5 tours for our wknd in NOLA, and this one was the only one I needed. It covered history, crime, local lore, and a little bit about ghosts and vampires. All the other tours covered the same spots we went, with variations on the same stories.

We had a great guide, Cody I think? He was so chill, down to earth, like real people. We kept passing other tours with huge groups and really annoying guides. Not ours. He answered so many questions outside of what we were touring. Highlight of our trip.
