Whether you see the wetlands, the mansions, the cemeries, the lake, the Katrina neighborhoods, or the river, we promise to inform and
entertain you along the way.
Having been a tour licensed tour guide in the New Orleans area since 2012, and lived in the area all of my life, I decided that I wanted to start my own tour business and specialize in private driving tours. Since the majority of the visitors that visit here spend the majority of their time in the French Quarter it is my passion the show my guests the rest of the beautiful city.
New Orleans is a unique and iconic city with not only a lot of history, but with many unique landmarks that are beautiful and have great stories about the past.
For example we have an amazing lake which borders our city to the north which I call the “Wow” factor. This is because once you see it you will say “Wow” and most people didn’t realize this Lake even existed. It’s has many unique characteristics, such and has a world record bridge running across it, as well as being the second largest inland salt water lake in the U.S. We will stop here for some pictures and to see it up close. We also have some of the most beautiful live oak trees in the world, that are not only amazing to see but have unique qualities as well, such as the size of their limbs. You will see several of our unique housing, from the low income neighborhoods, many of which have been rebuilt since Katrina and others that are among the most opulent mansions in the United States. They are nothing like the also beautiful and unique French Quarter residents.
I will spend a minimum of 3 hours driving around New Orleans talking about many of these unique, iconic, and beautiful sites while telling why and how this area was built and what we do today 300 years later. The rich history, the beauty, the recent developments, the reason for our growth, the wealth, the cultures, the state of Louisiana, the Mississippi river’s part in our history, the Catholic church and their part in our cultures, the civil war, the architecture, the back stories of many sites, (such as the cemeteries) and also a lot of humor and fun along the way. (I’ll answer the question of why we build fences around our cemeteries.)
