I took my 15-year old granddaughter and her friend. They loved it for the drama. I loved it for the history. We missed the first tour that we scheduled because the phone directed us somewhere else and we were too late to make the tour. However, the tour guide contacted us and rescheduled for the next night. The teenagers were ecstatic! Coty was our guide and there could not be anyone any better. He was extremely knowledgeable and related easily to all the different age groups on our tour...15 year olds, forty-year olds, 74-year olds, etc. He thoughtfully asked me whether certain information might be embarrassing to the teenagers or not (it wasn't). Coty also obviously had many friends and colleagues in the French Quarter who opened their doors to his tour group and provided extra personal experiences. We would do this tour all over again.

Our tour guide Cote was very good and informative, he was clear speaking and answered all our questions. We were not rushed at any point. Would definitely recommend! Well done and thank you Cote!

We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide Cody was knowledgeable, friendly and was able to share the history, both good and bad. I’d definitely recommend!

Coty was the best tour guide ever. Will-informed. Unbelievable sense of humor. Friendly and provisional.

Coty was AWESOME! We had so much fun. My favorite tour of the trip.
