    Dominick is one of the most knowledgeable guides I have used from trips all over the world. On our drive to Live Oak Plantation, we asked Dominick so many questions and all were answered with more than just the standard answer. The same was true on the return. We covered not

    Thanks for taking the time to submit s review. It was a pleasure to tour with you. Your many questions made it a better tour, for I believe an open discussion is far better than a scripted narration. I am glad you found the information interesting; I believe it will stay with you for a long time. Hope to see you again. Dominick

    Hank is a great guide and I am glad that you were flexible enough to have Hank fill for me while I was otherwise occupied. I know Hank was a wealth of information and invited an open discussion rather than a one-sided narration. Thanks for selecting New Orleans Private Tours as your tour company and Hank as your guide. We hope to see you again. Dominick

    Oh! Our group of five spent a day with Dominick. We handed him our hope to see plantations and a warning that we would have two 12 year-old with us. We left all details up to him. I'm ready to hand him all my money and let him organize my life. Casually communicative with a

    You all were fun to be with and I hope New Orleans had its best face on for you. And it was kind of you to notice that we have good working relationships all over the region and those relationships help us serve visitors. Hopefully too you learned something about our history and have a new appreciation for New Orleans in general. I hope to see you again. Thanks, Dominick

    We spent a very worthwhile day with Dom Musso touring two of the riverfront Plantations within driving distance of New Orleans. He is well informed in the way that only a highly intelligent native can be, and he shares his knowledge freely in the most pleasant, non-pushy way.
