    We knew it would be fun and it defitnitely exceeded our expectations!

    Brian took us to the bars at all the old famous restaurants for their special libation- Antoine's -Sazerac, Broussard's -Pimms Cup, Hotel Monteleone - Vieux Carre and Court of Two Sisters -Bayou Bash! I'm not really a whiskey drinker but these were good drinks! We also got some family stories and history of the buildings. Very enjoyable.

    Such an interesting tour, and Joe was brilliant

    I had a great time on the tour, learning about the fascinating history of New Orleans and getting to see behind the scenes of some of the most iconic restaurants in the city. Joe was very entertaining and well informed and he made the tour what it was. Thoroughly recommended.

    Awesome tour-awesome guide!

    My wife and I went on this tour and it really was the highlight of our trip. The pubs/restaurants we visited with the history behind them were fascinating. But the biggest plus was our guide, Sandy. She was absolutely charming and really made the tour. Her background stories of the Creoles and other anecdotes gave this a unique New Orleans' flavor. You are lucky to have her!
