    We really enjoyed our tour with Katrina. She was easy going, but gave sufficient guidance to move us along. And so much knowledge on the history and architecture. Really enjoyable and informative. Full marks to Katrina

    Thank you for taking the Garden District Tour with us! Being a tour guide isn't just about spouting facts off, one also has to be able to manage people well - including providing direction, keeping on the lookout for hazards on the street/sidewalk, and making sure we are on time! Throw in other tour groups and you can have quite the situation - every tour is an adventure! We are pleased that you enjoyed your tour and hope you'll join us again. (And thank you for adding this smiley picture of one of our favorite stops). :)
