Nola charges nothing but gives a first class historical tour of Old New Orleans. Our guide was Eric a personable young man who is chock full of knowledge and enjoys sharing it with others. Along with imparting pertinent information, Eric cares about his group. He finds shade to protect us from the New Orleans heat. He provides good tips on what to visit and where to eat. He also impressed with his concern about the sanctity of the cemetery we visited. Eric made this unique city alive.

David’s tour was not only informative but a remarkable experience for my boyfriend and I. We love New Orleans and appreciate the historical background given by “the Tour Guy”. It is evident he has a passion for history and coveys this city’s story in a captivating manner. I recommend to any tourist/local that wants an authentic New Orleans experience.

Ive been coming to New Orleans multiple times a year since 2006. The best tour I've ever had was today, from David. His knowledge and straightforward passion for history was conveyed perfectly with detail and color. His patience and professionalism even with a huge group of ignorant tourists was phenomenal. The only two poor reviews of this amazing tour is the same cheap Aussie tourist complaining that they shouldn't have been expected to tip the tour guide. Please understand that it is customary here and everywhere else in the United States to provide a gratuity, even if you're not absolutely tickled pink by the tour, or are too ignorant or busy on your cell phone browsing Facebook or Snapchat to participate as a guest.

This is, by far, the greatest tour you'll get in NOLA. Every single other tour will be garbage and full of vampire and magic nonsense by someone dressed up like Captain Jack Sparrow. While David isn't dappered up to some, he is genuine and passionate about what he does and goes out of his way to provide great service in an industry otherwise full of jerks and scam artists.

If there were more stars to give, I'd be giving them!

So informative. You will feel like someone with a Phd in New Orleans history is leading you. Did this tour, then a silly vampire tour at night, and this was the BEST by far. Overhearing other tours around you and you will know you are on the best one. The guy even pays for you to enter the cemetery that is off limits to people without a tour guide! Please tip... but you gladly will!

Dave is knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and his presentation is very good. He gave us information on the settling of New Orleans and the movers and shakers that built it.
