I actually had a tour with Judy awhile back and forgot to write a review but Judy was hands down the best tour guide ever. My friend and I were traveling down South from LA on our way to Florida and decided to stop at nola for 2 nights during the 4th of July. We came down for our set time and we were the only ones booked! Instead of rebooking us or telling us to come another time Judy was so amazing and showed us around regardless. She asked us if we wanted something longer considering it was just us 3 and we most definitely said yes! She's knowledgeable, passionate, and went above and beyond. She cares deeply about her home and the history behind and it shows. I learned so much that I still remember to this day. I would 100% recommend her to anyone visiting. She also gave us food recommendations and other sites to visit in our free time. Book with her, you wont regret it.

Judy, yes the owner herself will be your guide, is an ambassador for New Orleans! Although Covid restrictions did not allow her to personally give us a physical tour, she offered suggestions for our trip. She immediately replied to my message and then followed up with a phone call. Service at its best. I would not book a tour with anyone else in the future. Thank you Judy!

It was Great meeting you and having a telephone tour. I'm sorry that the Covid restrictions at the locations on my tour did not allow for us to access...perhaps they will open soon. All the Best! Judy

I had the pleasure to speak with Judy about touring with her recently and she went above and beyond to help us with our planned vacation to New Orleans. We appreciate the time that Judy took out of her day to discuss with us about all of the great things of interest to us while we are in New Orleans. Thank you so much for your help and suggestions Judy. We look forward to meeting with you when we are in your neighborhood. Sincerely, Ken and Kerri

I had met Ms.Judy in an environment outside of her tours, and I can say from the short time I had spent with her that she is absolutely amazing! Hearing about her past as a teacher and now in giving tours you can really feel the passion behind the words she speaks. I would say that conversing with her comes effortlessly, she is a deep well of knowledge, and she makes it so enjoyable. She says (roughly from my recall) it's more than just memorizing the facts but that there's a story behind it all, and I still can remember the talk we had, the differences between creole and cajun, the restaurants she mentioned to try, and when she was talking about all of these places and the history of it all, it was captivating and I honestly wish I had more time to have even learned a small amount more from her. Needless to say I look forward to bringing my wife and kids to her tours, to them not only enjoying the tours but meeting her as well for the wonderful person she is.
