Small-Group Tours Are The Safest And Best Way To See New Orleans

1. Easily Understand Your Guide

Don’t waste your precious money and time on a tour where you cannot even hear the guide! Small groups mean you will always hear your guide.

2. Avoid The Crowds

All tours are kept intentionally small. The smaller groups allow for a more intimate and enjoyable tour as well as being a safer tour experience. Do not share your tour with 20 other strangers all jostling to hear the guide. 

3. Expert Local Experts

You are guaranteed to have either Jane or Jeffrey has your guide. No faceless guide who is “next” to take a group out. Both Jane and Jeffrey are local historians, both are published authors, and both have been leading private and small group tours for years.
