We had a number of hours to kill between the arrival of our cruise ship and our flight home. We arranged for a tour with Andrew Reid to fill the time and to learn more about (and see more of) New Orleans. From the moment he picked us up from the cruise port until he dropped us at the airport, we enjoyed every minute of the driving tour. Andrew was so friendly and informative! We were able to visit locations around the City we would not have even known about without Andrew's local knowledge. Wonderful!
