Fascinating tour of the French Quarter with a warm, funny and extremely knowledgeable guide!

This was an excellent tour: Josh was a knowledgeable and responsive guide- and had good answers to all our questions. We learned a lot about the NOLA history, food and culture and Josh answered all our questions with great stories! I would go again on other tours with Josh!

Our guide Libby was great! She shared a lot of information in a funny and interesting way. She also did her best to keep us in the shade on a hot day, which is important!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Yes, shade is important! Thank you for taking the time to review your French Quarter tour, and thanks for not taking points off for the heat. I love the stories and characters of the French Quarter and consider myself so lucky to be able to share it all with my guests. Thanks for booking! Libby

Our guide Yvonne told us fascinating facts and stories about the French Quarter and New Orleans. It truly exceeded our expectations, which were high!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Great! I am glad Yvonne exceeded your high expectations, but I am not surprised. She knows so much about this city and is a great representative of the vibrant, colorful, welcoming culture of New Orleans. I hope you can come back one day and experience Yvonne's Garden District tour. Thank you for taking the time to leave this great review. Libby

A great first tour!

Our tour guide Libby was great. She shared lots of local history in a funny and interesting way. This was our first tour on our first visit to town and helped orient us to where things are. Libby also tried to keep us in the shade as much as possible, which is important because it gets really hot here!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thanks, Mark! I am glad I was able to show you around my beloved French Quarter, and I appreciate the praise and recommendation! I think a French Quarter tour is a "must do" to start your exploration of New Orleans. I will be seeking out the shady spots until you come again! Libby

Tour guide at her best!

Our tour guide, Libby, was just wonderful! She showed us everything we expected to see and some things that were unexpected. Libby used pictures to show us who she was referring to, or buildings, she referred to. Libby is a gifted tour guide and storyteller; we enjoyed every minute!
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Awww, thanks! I really do love what I do, and I am so grateful when I run into fellow story-lovers, because I love telling them! The pictures help, too. Thanks for walking with me through the beautiful and historic French Quarter, and please come join me for another walk another time! Libby

Terrific stories about the real New Orleans. Very personable and interesting guide. Can’t get this touring on your own.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
Thank you for this great review! We agree - New Orleans is an experience on its own, but every visitor should take a few hours to walk with a really good guide (a/k/a Lucky Bean Tours guide) to learn the stories and really get the spirit of the city. See you next time for a Garden District tour! Libby

We stood around too long Thought it would be a walking tour

She was. too wrapped up in her story and boyfriend. We wanted to see blogs and houses. We stood in place too long at a time. She didn't mention Jackson As and it's history. Had a better your on the mile ride and better history lesson.
