Great Private tour!
, Jul 2021
I was really excited to take this tour and Marc did not disappoint! As a solo traveler, I really appreciated that he didn’t charge extra just because I was solo. Marc was such a nice person so I (female, 30s) never felt uncomfortable being alone with him on our 3 hour tour. I have been to New Orleans several times but, I saw so much and leaned so much about the truly authentic parts of the city where the people who work in the French Quarter live and where the locals go to eat and drink. The private driving tour was a really great, safe way to see neighborhoods that I had not previously been to. Mark was very knowledgeable about New Orleans and gave a lot of details about the history of these less traveled neighborhoods as well as the more current state of affairs. Will definitely book another tour when I come back in November!
Explore the whole city in a day!

Amazing tour with Marc. Not at all touristy but like an insider guide from a local friend. Feel like I know the city & it’s neighborhoods much better, and wonderful start to exploring on your own
The Best Tour Ever!!!

We did our private New Orleans tour with Mark yesterday and it was the BEST tour we have ever had or done with a guide! We have traveled all around the world and had many wonderful adventures, however this was the best tour we have ever been on BY FAR! Mark took us to off the beaten path places... to get beignets, stopped by churches for photo ops, and brought a cornacopia of knowledge of all there is to see and do in New Orleans. If you want to see what NOLA has to offer and get insight from a true local this is the tour to take!
