Great local tour, well worth the ticket price. Get to know the area from a lifelong resident. Do not expect lavish tours of mansions in museums, it is enjoyable Quick lesson in the history of the area , Especially the results of Katrina

We have taken many tours in various towns and cities but no one can compete with Carla. This was by far the best tour. It is personal and I guarantee you will come away with a profound appreciation for this Southern City.

The lady that runs the tour was very nice and very informative. We learned a lot of local history and about the devastation from Katrina (which the media neglected to provide). Worth the time.
