We were lucky enough to get Dominick for our tour. His knowledge of both the early and recent history of New Orleans was phenomenal. As someone who was born and raised there he related personal anecdotes that enhanced the tour. This tour was well worth the cost and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the city.
