We had such a great time on our tour with Rene! He was very engaging and informative. We learned so much about New Orleans. Will take another tour with Walks when we return.

Rene was very well versed in the history of the area and he shared with us his love for all things NOLA! One of our most enjoyable tours.

Jet was great! We really enjoyed our day with him. The only suggestion I would make is to lessen the time spent at the Praline bakery, I would rather spend your time walking around and learning about the history of the city rather than being in a store (which we could do on our own).

Pleased to have a guide that has a long history living in the area toured.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Rene. He was very informative, had a great sense of humor, and really knew his history. What was amazing is he was very patient with us Tourists.
