Great historical tour of the French quarter
, Jan 2021
Randy was well informed and a fun guide! Really knows his history more so than any other tour I’ve taken in the city an his tour was best on our trip. Would 100% recommend if you’re looking to learn a good foundational history on New Orleans and the French quarter. Do note, however, that due to COVID-19 the cemetery is closed, but you can still see a lot of it by waking around the outside and he gives the history of it nonetheless. Again, great tour if you want to learn about the real history of the city and not what Hollywood shows of it.

Cemetery and French Quarter Walking Tour - a great experience!!
, Jun 2019
We were very happy with this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and was able to give us information in an interesting manner. We were a small group of 6 and when we arrived at the cemetery and saw the other much larger groups we were REALLY pleased and thankful that we had our tour guide and the smaller group. Many thanks for making our trip to New Orleans so enjoyable.

This was an excellent tour, and our tour guide Mike made it even more special. Mike is very sociable and very informative, and I recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area. Well worth the price for a few hours of history and behind the scene looks of the French Quarter. We booked numerous tours through Viator and have not been disappointed yet.

This was excellent. My friend and I were lucky enough to have a personal tour, as it was not busy last week. Mike was awesome, and we learned so much about the history of the city, and the people past and present. He answered every question, and and made our day a very enjoyable experience.

My husband and I took this walking tour with Michael Naughton. We were actually the only people on the tour. We started in the French Quarter and walked to St. Louis No. 1 Cemetary. Mike was very informed about the city and the cemetery and answered all of our questions about voodoo. I'm very glad we took this tour and I highly recommend it. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes and bring water and a hat it was scorching hot even in November and there was no shade in the cemetery.
