Roni

New Orleans, LA, United States

I became a tour guide because I love meeting new people, telling stories and entertaining.

The funny thing is that I got into speaking in front of large groups out of a fear of public speaking. Yes, you heard right. When I was in law school I tried to avoid speaking in front of the class at whatever cost. Finally, it caught up with me and I had to tackle this fear. My way was through Toastmasters International, which completely turned my life around and made me realize, that what I was afraid of, I actually really liked doing.

Originally from Israel, I visited New Orleans for the first time in 2013 and fell in love with this fascinating city. I have been a student of the Big Easy ever since, and finally made the plunge and moved here permanently a couple of years ago. As an Israeli, I am drawn to the Jewish history of New Orleans and to bicycles. I give Jewish history tours and city tours of the New Orleans in both English and in Hebrew, by foot, by bike, in a car or by public transportation.

I have a love for language and as a former corporate lawyer, have the knack for noticing those quirky little expressions that you see and hear every day, particularly in New Orleans.

I served in the Israeli military as an army medic in a unit very similar to the one depicted on the show M. A. S. H.

I am happy to meet you and to tailor a tour that will meet your personal interests.

Welcome to New Orleans!

Roni was very knowledgeable about the Jewish history of New Orleans. He has done lots of research on the subject and did a thorough job of telling the history. It was a very pleasant walking tour.
