Michaela R.

New Orleans, La., United States


I was born and raised in the city of New Orleans and an expert on the influence of food, culture, and history within and surrounding the Crescent City.

If you want to explore history or haunts, shopping or swamps, food or just have fun, I have a tour for you.
I have been a tour guide for 15 years and never get blasé about the rich history of this magical city.

New Orleans has so much to offer to her visitors. There is always something to do in this great city.

It would be my pleasure to take you around New Orleans and show you the wonderful sights and sounds. From Uptown to the Lower Nine, from the French quarter to the Garden district.

Our culture is like no other. We love to live and live to love.

Around every corner, you will find a second line (Those who follow the band just to enjoy the music are called the "second line. " The second line's style of traditional dance, in which participants walk and sometimes twirl a parasol or handkerchief in the air, is called "second lining) celebrating an event.

A little bit about the tours I offer. . . I am all about letting You decide how you want to spend your time with me! My tours are 3, 4 or 5 hours long. I have a 2015 Mercedes ML 350 and a 2014 Volvo XC90. Both are high end luxury vehicle with Leather interior.

I will give you some options on how to get the most bang for your buck, but ultimately it's about YOU and what you are interested in.


I do recommend one of the first things you do in New Orleans is TAKE A TOUR! This will acclimate you and help you understand New Orleans. Also it will help you plan your activities here.
On any of the tours, I can pick you up or drop you off at the airport.

If I can help with any arrangement while you are in New Orleans please don't hesitate to ask.

See you soon :)

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

A Recent Review of this guide

Michaela was fantastic! She is spunky, knowledgeable, and wonderfully gracious. We couldn't imagine there being a better native to show us her city. In addition to a great tour, she offered many off the beaten path dining and entertainment suggestions throughout our stay. Not only did we love her, but we loved that she had an extremely comfortable Mercedes to drive us around when walking in the heat became overwhelming. She was the perfect match for me and my husband, the Historian.
