Excellent tour customized to our needs and desires. Paul is a natural born tour guide. He is informative yet interesting and not one bit boring. He hit all the places we wanted to see and gave us the details and history behind those places. We all loved the tour and highly recommend. FIVE STARS.

If you are in NOLA, definitely book a tour with Paul. He made my friends and I feel comfortable and tailored the tour to our needs. He was extremely knowledgeable, and shared insights with us that we likely would not have discovered on this, our first ever trip to the Big Easy. I highly recommend!

Fantastic way to spend the afternoon! It’s my first time here, and I saw and learned so much more than I would have wandering on my own. You won’t be disappointed ☺️

My husband and I are two hours away from NOLA and visit often. Never have taken a tour. This was our first. It is a fact based tour. Paul was punctual, car was immaculate, very informative and knowledgeable. The overall experience was excellent I must say! We would definitely recommend Paul for your next guided tour. We had never been to City Park. It was beautiful. Currently making plans to go back with our children and grandchildren. Loved seeing where “famous” people lived. was a little disappointed with a couple of their homes in the beloved Garden District💚💚💚No blame to Paul. Actually, afterwards, it was an ongoing joke. Recommended a couple of fantastic restaurants we had not been too ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ can’t go wrong with Paul!
