He loves New Orleans. Dominick is like having your favorite history teacher be your guide. We enjoy learning how a city came to be and he delivered. Plus he lived thru Katrina and described the disaster from an honest and personal perspective of what really happened and how the city continues to rebound. Private tour with a local is so much better than an impersonal bus tour.
