Libby was a wonderful tour guide. She is a local and was a wealth of knowledge about American history as well as New Orleans architecture and culture.

Thank you! I am an absolute fan of weaving history, culture, geography, and a little psychology together to tell the stories that make this place so special. I tell the good, bad, sad, and triumphant. I am so honored that you chose us to show you around, and I am grateful that you took the time to write such a thoughtful review. The reviews are absolutely vital to us staying afloat during uncertain times. See you next time! Liobby

Eliot is smart, kind, and loves what he does. We are so lucky at Lucky Bean Tours to have him show our guests around. I am glad you enjoyed your walk through the old neighborhood with him, and I hope we get to see you on the banks of the Mississippi another time! Libby

Joos gave an excellent tour, including all the topics we were interested in-history, architecture, food and fun facts. We benefited from his knowledge and love of this great city. He was also sensitive to the heat of the day and always ensured we stopped in shady areas.

Thank you for reviewing your French Quarter tour with Joos! He starts every tour by asking his guests what interests them, then on the spot designs a custom tour just for them. It always makes for a better tour for everyone. He knows so much about New Orleans and delivers his tours in a comfortable, friendly way. He is also, as you noticed, sensitive to the comfort of his guests and really makes sure everyone is included, relaxed, and enjoying themselves. Thank you for choosing us to share New Orleans with you. I hope you can come walk with us another time. Libby

Yikes! I am just seeing this review! Thank you so much for writing it (two months ago).It has taken me a while to respond, but I am definitely happy that you enjoyed our tour and are recommending it, and I appreciate your writing a review. The French Quarter is just overflowing with stories and whatever my guests are interested in - jazz, food, ghosts, architecture, civil rights, murders, and more - I am ready! Please come walk with me again! We will take a different route and tell all new stories! Libby

Miss Loretta was an amazing guide! She was so interactive and engaging and knew her stuff. Highly recommend this tour at the beginning of your trip if you want to know the history of the French Quarter and get a better understanding of the surroundings. If you get Miss Loretta she not only gives you an amazing tour but an email with a list of everything you possibly want for your trip: places to eat, drink, see, do and publications and radio stations to know what's going on in New Orleans. I can't stress enough how highly I recommend this tour!
