Muriel was spectacular as our guide! She was personable and made our group of college students feel at ease and comfortable for an evening tour of the French Quarter. Her knowledge of the history and culture was inspiring and she left the group wanting to know even more about the great history of New Orleans. I would recommend her to any group. Thanks for a wonderful tour, great communication and impeccable professionalism.
