Michaela R.

New Orleans, La., United States


New Orleans culture is like no other. We love to live and live to love.

My name is Michaela and I was born and raised in the city of New Orleans. I am an expert on the influence of food, culture, and history within and surrounding the city of New Orleans.

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 17+ 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.

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.

I have a 2018 Mercedes Metris that you will be touring in. 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.

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 EXCELLENT in every way. We were a mobility restricted trio of old ladies and she went above and beyond for us in many ways. She conducted a wonderful personalized tour of NOLA. It's obvious she loves her city and her perspective about raising her kids in the French Quarter, living through Katrina, and valuing a diverse culture is one we couldn't have gotten any other way. We couldn't have asked for more! We highly recommend her to anyone who wants to leave with a real FEEL for NOLA!
