Highlight of our visit, and the one thing I keep bringing up when friends ask about the trip. Melanie has a super deep and detailed knowledge of the city and events that happened there. I loved how she paired details about specific places with broader historical context.

An Extraordinary guide like only local can be. Lovely personality. Extensive knowledge . She is a learnt historian and scholar. Was the high light of our visit. Extends beyond the French quarter to issues such as history of music, slavery, gastronomy and art.
