Great tour guide

Our tour guide, Carmel, had amazing enthusiasm which was highly contagious. It was clear that she was passionate about New Orleans’ history and stories. Walking through the French Quarter is not the same as actually knowing the history behind the buildings and people that made it what it is today, making the tour truly worth every penny and every minute.

Thank you for taking the time to review your French Quarter tour with Carmel! We know that vacation time is valuable, so we appreciate it when our guests stop a minute to tell the world what they thought about our tours. We do have the best guests, and it is because of reviews like this! I agree that Carmel’s sweetness and enthusiasm make her so much fun to be around, and she is constantly learning more about this place she loves. And yes, the French Quarter can be admired by anyone, but to truly appreciate its richness, you need to walk around with a knowledgeable local. Thanks for allowing Lucky Bean to show you this special place, and please come walk with us again! Libby

I am so happy that you got to learn about some of the things that interest you about New Orleans, and I appreciate this review! We do try to address the questions and interests of each of our guests so everyone can make a real connection to New Orleans-it’s the main reason we keep our groups small. Please come again and bring more questions! Libby

Eliot was an excellent tour guide. He was knowledgeable, friendly and willing to answer any and all questions. He balanced historical facts with interesting stories and humor. Bravo! Would recommend this tour to everyone!

Thank you! I am so happy that you enjoyed your French Quarter tour with Eliot. His tours are like a performance, except that they are a little different each time. Lucky Bean guides avoid burnout by creating a new tour every time we go out, changing up the routes based on the questions and interests of our guests, and constantly learning new stories to share. We each tell the stories that we love, because those are the ones we tell the best. Eliot brings an artistic perspective to his tours, and his guests are gifted with a whole new way of seeing this special place. Please come stroll the narrow bustling streets with us another time!

Yay Josh!! Thanks for this enthusiastic review of your tour and thanks for braving the brutal New Orleans heat with Lucky Bean Tours. It takes an excellent guide like Josh to get your mind off the weather, and he really does it with his knowledge, humor, and likable personality.

Elliot was amazing. We learned a lot, I was impressed with the tour. We learned about the jazz history of New Orleans and Elliot even sang a few jazz songs. Highly recommend!

Thanks for reviewing your jazzy French Quarter tour with Eliot! Lucky Bean Tours encourages our guides to tell the stories that resonate with them the most, because those are the stories they are most excited about and they will tell them the best. Eliot is a musician so he can tell the history of New Orleans through its world-renowned music. Every guest comes away energized by Eliot’s enthusiasm and humor. Plus, he sings! Thanks for allowing us to show you our city, and please come back! Libby
