Our guide was Brian and he was fantastic. His knowledge and story telling were a perfect way to stroll and sip through the history of the French Quarter. We would highly recommend this tour and ask for Brian.

Isn't it fun with a group of friends? We also find that guests meet new friends along the way on this winding story of the city through cocktails. Hope you visit again soon!

I loved hearing the history of the bars and restaurants along with getting to try out a drink that they are known for at each location. Highly recommend this tour.
