Her passion for the area showed!

Loved the tour hosted by Peak! She was energetic, knowledgeable, and answered all of our questions. She was exactly where she said we’d meet and had pictures of the historical people she spoke of on our tour. We had a great time!

I am so happy to hear that you had such a great time on your French Quarter tour with Peak. When it comes down to it, a tour should be FUN - learning history and seeing the sights is great, but unless it's fun, it's not worth the time. Peak is unique, passionate, funny, smart, and always FUN! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I hope you are able to visit again. Libby

Libby our tour guide provided a detailed history of the French Quarter which colorfully helped us understand the richness of the culture and people that came before the present and made New Orleans the vibrant city it is today. She we able to give perspective about the architecture, the people, the food and the music. She was enthusiastic and could answer any question about the city. We highly recommend this tour.

I love this review! My goal is to explain our culture, our spirit, and what makes us what we are - not just the history and architectural terms. I AM enthusiastic about my city and I want other people to be as well. I am so glad that you enjoyed my tour and I am looking forward to walking and talking with you again. Libby

Tours are better in a storm

2 hours of history, stories and fun facts while walking thru the French Quarter and learning about New Orleans was entertaining and educational. Would do it again.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Storms ARE a big part of New Orleans history and culture, so touring this city during a storm would definitely yield a unique understanding of what people in this area have experienced for over a thousand years. I am glad you had the opportunity to explore the French Quarter while you were here. We know that there are so many great tour companies in New Orleans, and it doesn't go unappreciated when a traveler chooses us to introduce them to the city. Please come again. We are constantly learning more stories!

Libby is a great guide. As we walked the French Quarter she brought the pla e to life. Past present and maybe a glimpse into the future. She was so knowledgeable that she customized the stories and walk to the interests of the group. She is stellar and a great example of a small business.

Oh, my heart! I am SO PROUD of my little company, and even more grateful that I have been able to make a business out of something I truly love - showing my guests this very special place and explaining what makes it so special. I appreciate this wonderful review and I am looking forward to walking with you again. Libby

Thank you! I am an absolute fan of weaving history, culture, geography, and a little psychology together to tell the stories that make this place so special. I tell the good, bad, sad, and triumphant. I am so honored that you chose us to show you around, and I am grateful that you took the time to write such a thoughtful review. The reviews are absolutely vital to us staying afloat during uncertain times. See you next time! Liobby

Joos gave an excellent tour, including all the topics we were interested in-history, architecture, food and fun facts. We benefited from his knowledge and love of this great city. He was also sensitive to the heat of the day and always ensured we stopped in shady areas.
icon Response from Host , Sep 2020
Thank you for reviewing your French Quarter tour with Joos! He starts every tour by asking his guests what interests them, then on the spot designs a custom tour just for them. It always makes for a better tour for everyone. He knows so much about New Orleans and delivers his tours in a comfortable, friendly way. He is also, as you noticed, sensitive to the comfort of his guests and really makes sure everyone is included, relaxed, and enjoying themselves. Thank you for choosing us to share New Orleans with you. I hope you can come walk with us another time. Libby
