    We loved our time with Michelle! Her knowledge of the city's history is extensive as was her insider information on the best places to eat. The walking isn't strenuous and we felt completely safe inside each restaurant we went to. As others have suggested, Michelle's tour is good to do early in your visit to New Orleans as she gives many tips on things to do that will help you plan your itinerary. Nothing I would change!

    Michelle gave us a fabulous tour. The restaurants we stopped at were all fantastic! We learned just the right amount of history and storytelling. I highly recommend this tour.

    Best tour of my trip! Michelle is such a warm, friendly and knowledgeable guide, and the three restaurants/bars she took us to are all very local, and have superb food and drinks! The walk through the Garden District is also great! Highly recommend!!!

    Michelle shows you where to get the best beignets and more. It’s a history and food tour wrapped into one. There is so much more than the French Quarter. We fell in love with the area thanks to Michelle. To discover something outside of the tourist district and try some real authentic New Orleans cuisine, this tour is a must!

    The tour with Michelle was one of the highlights of the trip I took with my wife to New Orleans. The tour was informative, interesting, and perfectly paced. The food and drink choices were excellent and the tour was great value for money.

    The tour was the highlight of the trip! We had never eaten poyboys or beignets before this trip and we went to the best places in the garden district. Michelle was very personable and knowledgeable and gave us special attention to our questions
