TripAdvisor review:

Our tour with Glen was wonderful! He is kind, communicates well with his guests, and really knows his stuff about NOLA. We learned a lot about the things that make NOLA what it is today and why it’s a special place. You will be able to tell instantly that Glen genuinely loves his job. He loves people and he will make sure you are comfortable and have a good time. A few highlights for us was Cafe Du Monde, seeing the architecture through the Garden District, and learning about the cultures that make up NOLA. You’ll really make some memories if you book a tour with Glen, and also you will gain a new friend! Thank you, Glen!


TripAdvisor review:

It is hard to say which part of the tour was our favorite. We loved the tour from start to finish! He took us through the French Quarter, to Cafe du Monde for beignets and coffee, to St. Louis Cemetery #3, City Park, Lake Pontchartrain, and throughout the Garden district to see the “house floats” and the beautiful homes. We finished off the tour with a stop for ice cream. Glen was so knowledgeable about all things NOLA. He made sure our every need was taken care of, as well as teaching us so much about the history of New Orleans.


TripAdvisor review:

Glen was awesome, he spent time before our trip helping us plan our custom tour which included visiting Laura Plantation, Oak Alley, Garden District, and the French Quarter and more.
We were impressed by his extensive knowledge and enjoyed his ‘Dad Jokes’.
Glen is a good man, you can trust him, and his prices were more than fair!

Thanks Glen, all the best to you, God Bless!

TripAdvisor review:

we took this tour on a Sunday and could not have been happier. I personally have taken over 20 private tours all over the world and none where better than this one. Mr Henley is a 45 year resident who loves his home and he takes the time and has the expertise to share that with you. You can do your homework and tell him where you would like to go or let him show you or a combination of both. We were two couples who travel together and we all felt the same. By all means have him take you to his favorite eating places and get the best local food and deserts.
