Had a great time on the tour with our guide and he told us some interesting stories of the French Quarter. It is a lot or walking but very doable. Parking is always a nightmare there (pardon the pun) but a movie was filming nearby and that made it worse. One of the places where I took some pictures, the scene of mass murders decades ago, not one of the pictures came through on my phone camera. All the others that night were fine and they hadn't been deleted because I never delete photos. I wonder if some of the spirits wanted to be left alone!

absolutely engaging experience, the guide (Graham. I hope I wrote his name Well) was very nice and managed to magnetize the attention with his stories. he immediately told us (since we were the only non-Americans) that if we needed could explain the things just said again ... recommended tour! +++

I went on a weekday at 11:00, and our group was really small. It was perfect because we were able to ask more questions and have great dialogue. The tour guide James was extremely knowledgeable. I didn't feel like the tour was just a speech that he was giving us and walking us through. He read the group really well and talked about things that he gathered we were interested in. I went solo on the tour and was a little nervous about being a loner, but I'm so glad I went.
