This was a great tour. It takes you beyond the typical tourist areas. I have been to NOLA several times and this was the most comprehensive experience I have ever had. Oz was great- he knew his history as well as the contemporary relevance of this history. As a true NOLA resident- fifth generation- he is clearly knowledgeable and proud of his town. Great communication, on time, professional.

Funny enough I was the only one on this tour at 10am. I was surprised and excited. I was picked up from my brothers apartment on Bourbon Street, that was great! I could sleep in and not worry about rushing across the Quarter. My tour guide was exceptional, and knew his stuff. It was exactly the kind of tour I wanted, and helped me truly understand what was happening during Katrina in 2005.

As a former resident of New Orleans, I was pleasantly surprised to see and hear about so many things I had never seen before. Our guide was really knowledgable and quite enjoyable. This tour was a really great bargain. On top of everything else, I fouled up my scheduling and missed our scheduled morning tour time. But getyourguide was very cooperative and moved us to the afternoon trip. Thank you!
