Peak was very knowledgeable about the history of the French Quarter and knew a lot of details. I walked away with a much better understanding of the history of the area.

My husband and I had a great time with Eliot. We were thrilled that he incorporated items of interest to us and made sure to keep us in the shade when possible due to the increased heat throughout the walking experience.

Fantastic Experience With A Great Guide

This was a fantastic tour. Josh was an excellent guide and was very knowledgeable. I love history and it was great to have someone who was even more passionate about it than me take us all through the French Quarter. My GF and I felt like we learned a ton and had a much better idea of the character and history of the French Quarter. Josh was incredibly friendly and hospitable, asking us what we were interested in and then curating the tour based on that information. He even threw in a couple of ghost stories when we said we were interested. We learned so much about the architecture, the history of the city, and their effort to preserve the historical nature of the neighborhood. Overall it was one of the best walking tours I’ve been on, we thoroughly enjoyed our time!

I really liked when she told us about a man turning a whole apartment complex into his own house. It looked so nice and cool when we glanced inside. The tour was really fun and informative. We went back to a couple of the places during the rest of our trip. Libby is the best tour guide I've ever had. Thank you!
