First, Gene was a GREAT tour guide. He is a native and knows everything from A to Z and gives recommendations for local hotspots. He kept the tour real and included the continued deplorable conditions of some of those still living in the 9th ward with no electricity or running water...but he was also humorous, has an obvious love of...
