A note from New Orleans Area Custom Private Tour
I sanitize my vehicle before every tour and provide hand sanitizer for everyone in your group. Face masks are optional. This is a private tour for your group and your group only. So, no one else will be in the SUV but me and your group. I will wear a face mask the entire tour if you wish.

Overview
This is a private driving tour for your group only. During our private driving tour in this beautiful city we spend a minimum of 3 hours discussing how this area was built and how we currently handle things over 300 years later. We cover the rich history, many recent developments, the Mississippi river. Lake Ponchartrain, Katrina flooding, Creole and Cajun cultures, the Garden District (Mansions/Estates/Architecture), the iconic cemeteries, various neighborhoods, battle of New Orleans, civil war, our Port, and so much more. You will be in a comfortable and very clean SUV during your tour. I retired from executive sales and became a licensed tour guide in the New Orleans area in 2012, and have lived in the area all of my life. I have made it my mission to provide you with a customized private tour for just your group, that is passionate, and interesting, with a spirit of excellence. I have over 60 five star reviews on many travel websites. We promise you will laugh and learn!

Glen took 4 of us on an informative and interesting 3 hour tour. Two of us had been to NOLA numerous times and two were newbies. We all enjoyed the tour, primarily because of Glen's knowledge and humor! Highly recommend this tour.
