Highly Recommend

My husband and I took the cemetery tour with Judy and I cannot say enough good things. Judy is exceptional. Her knowledge is remarkable and is only matched by her brilliant personality. We both felt as though we learned a lot from her and the tour. If you are looking to learn authentic history from an authentic person, you cannot go wrong with Magic Walking Tours. If we return to New Orleans, I am certain we will be seeking out another tour!

Amazing Tour

My wife and I took the Garden District tour with Bob, our guide. Literally, this was the best tour I've ever been on, anywhere. Bob is incredibly informative, friendly -- really gives his all to the tour, cares about it, is full of anecdotes and information. He's like the history professor you never had in college. The Garden District is amazing on its own, but the tour totally brought it to life. Great fun. The two hours went by in a flash!

Worth It

Ricardo did an excellent job telling us about the history of New Orleans! I was particularly impressed that he told the stories in an engaging way and he was careful to distinguish between evidence-based facts vs. legends. It was obvious that Ricardo has a true passion for New Orleans history. I had a great time, saw the beauty of the French Quarter in a new way, and learned so much. I'm definitely doing another tour!

Entertaining & Educational

Our tour guide, Randy, was a true gem! Not only did he educate us on the history, but he had a very interesting and kind way of doing so. His mix of history with humor blended everything perfectly, even though it was rainy and cold! You could tell this job is his passion. An absolutely perfect tour and we learned such a great deal about the cemetery itself, along with some of the people entombed there! I recommend this to anyone!
