A Terrific Private Tour Of The City of New Orleans
Jim_M
, Oct 2021
While I had never visited the City of New Orleans previously, my wife had been there once before. We only had one day before our Mississippi River Cruise was going to depart, so we decided to schedule a private tour of New Orleans. Are we ever glad we did that, and are we ever glad we chose Henley’s Private Tours! Glen Henley picked us up in his roomy SUV at our hotel at 2:30pm promptly, and we were on our way. We had suggested a small change in the itinerary, and Glen accommodated us immediately without question. Glen knew that “The customer is always right!”, and he honored that maxim continually during our whole tour. During our private tour, among other things, we drove through the French Quarter including Jackson Square, Uptown, the Garden District, and the City Park where we stopped to savor a beignet at the Café du Monde cafe there. We also stopped at St. Louis Cemetery #3 where Glen gave us a brief tour and explained why and how cemeteries all had burials above ground in various-sized and configured family mausoleums. In our tour of Uptown, we stopped to look at a mansion that had a Halloween display of various creatively-worded and assembled skeletons, such as “DEAD Astaire and CRINGer Rogers ... except BACKWARDS & in HIGH HEELS.” Glen drove us to the banks of Lake Pontchartrain and explained that it’s really a bay off the Gulf of Mexico, not a lake. On the way to and from Lake Pontchartrain, Glen explained how the levees and berms are built to withstand floods as best they can during hurricanes. In summary, in a terrific 3+ hour tour, Glen showed us that there is a lot more to the City of New Orleans than just the French Quarter!

Glen was an excellent tour guide. It was nice to get out of the Bourbon street area and spend time in the beautiful area surrounding New Orleans. Glen is very knowledgeable about the history of the area and his tour was we'll worth it.

Amazingly Knowledgeable Man

We had the best private tour today with Henley's Private Tours! New Orleans is way more than the French Quarter! We learned about the river and how the city came to be, saw amazing cemeteries, beautiful homes, and all parts of this amazing city. We also saw and learned how the Katrina flooding happened. Great day! Glen Henley was an amazingly knowledgeable man who took the time to customize the trip for us and of course we had beignets at Cafe Du Monde. The tour was for me, and my elderly parents and he did a great job of customizing the tour for my father's interest in history and accomodating my mother's mobility and Alzheimer's issues! Highly recommend!

First Timers to New Orleans
Stephanie_G
, May 2021
First timers in New Orleans and Glenn, the owner and operator of Henley’s Private Tour of New Orleans went above and beyond on our tour. Glenn was an absolute wealth of knowledge and a true professional. It's clear he loves New Orleans and its rich history. We spent ~3+ hours driving and stopping to learn all about New Orleans. No stone was left uncovered. HIGHLY recommend booking Henley Tours with Glenn! A tour with him makes you much more informed about the city and its vast history. So thrilled we decided to book with him and take a tour of the city.
