What people are saying about Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar

John was the best tour guide ever, I loved the stories and I could hear him, which is hard in the streets during Marti Graw. He gave us the perfect amount of time in each bar to get a drink, chat and use the facilities. His personality was perfect for this and you need to hold onto him because he really makes the tour what it is! My 3 adult girls who were with me who don't want to "be with mom" had a fabulous time and thought this was the best tour ever! Also because of John. Thank you John for making my trip with the girls a success!
