Seeing new places, historical background stories shared, and other places to see while we are here. The rich history of some of the buildings and people.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Thank you! That is a great word for the culture we have here - "rich." The city obviously isn't wealthy by typical standards, but our culture, traditions, history, and passion is priceless. We are so happy to be allowed to show visitors why we are privileged to call New Orleans home. Please come explore more of this special place again! Libby

We had a wonderful time with a great guide who really knew his history, both of the world and New Orleans specifically.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Thanks for this review! All of us here at Lucky Bean Tours love New Orleans - that is obvious. But fitting New Orleans' history into World history and American History is where connections are made and "aha" moments produced. It's like adding another piece into a huge puzzle. I am so happy that you enjoyed your walk through the oldest of our fascinating neighborhoods, and we all look forward to showing you around next time. Libby

That goes for you, too-please come again! Libby

Perfect New Orleans Welcome

We were staying at a VRBO in the French Quarter and did this tour on our first day to acclimate ourselves to the area. It did the trick. We became familiar with the history and unique aspects of the area. Our tour guide, Josh, was a self-described "history nerd" and knew so much about the area. He also had photos to help us see the geography and history. Our group was small, just 5 of us, which made it even better. We were told where to meet and left on time. It was so much more fun exploring the area on foot where you could really see the architecture, learn how to navigate the area and immerse yourself in the culture.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Wow! Great review! Thanks for touring with us and for responding with some well-deserved praise for our history nerd, Josh! Josh's love of the history of New Orleans leads him to notice all the special things about this city, and his friendliness and gift for storytelling make him the perfect person to introduce it all to lucky visitors. His visual aides simply fill in the gaps and enhance his stories. I agree that the French Quarter is a neighborhood best explored on foot, as it was experienced by the earliest inhabitants whose stories we tell on our tours. Please come stroll through history with us another time! Libby

Libby was an awesome guide. She had so many great historical stories to share and was very interesting!
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Thanks for the "excellent rating" love! I started this whole thing because I LOVE to tell stories, and I especially love to tell stories about Louisiana, and when someone gives my company an excellent rating, I figure that can only bring me more people who will listen to my stories. I am lucky to have a few great guides now who also share my love of telling stories about this fascinating place, and we are all waiting to show every interested traveler what makes New Orleans so special. Please come explore with me again! Libby

Elliot was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He covered NOLA history, jazz history, fun facts, and humor.

Thanks for reviewing your French Quarter tour with Eliot! His artistic perspective and deep research are two of the tools he uses to build his wonderful tours, and his kindness and humor make these excursions fun and memorable for all his guests! I hope you come back one day and tour with us again. Libby

This tour is fantastic, and I highly recommend. Libby was an awesome guide - she literally knows everything about the city. She had a way of telling stories in an incredibly engaging manner - especially stories that you know could have potentially been boring. I learned so much. Thanks Libby!
icon Response from Host , Jan 2022
Wow, thanks! I DO love to tell stories and most stories, if you dig enough, can be interesting because people - especially New Orleanians and more specifically French Quarter residents - are interesting! Thank you so much for touring and for taking the time to review. I am looking forward to learning and sharing new stories in the new year and I hope you come this way to walk with Lucky Bean Tours again! Libby
