Our tour was amazing! We had such a great time. Our driver, KJ, was wonderful. He was so friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the French Quarter. He also knew quite a lot about the locations each one of us in the group came from. He answered all our questions and was very entertaining. Our mule house, Lou, was the sweetest girl. She was so smart and pretty. The ride itself was awesome. The Quarter is so beautiful and it was such a great experience seeing it from that perspective. I would recommend that anyone visiting New Orleans take this tour. You'll learn so much and you can't beat seeing the beauty of the French Quarter from a carriage.
