Stephen B.

New Orleans, LA, United States

Welcome to the Big Easy, New Orleans one of the most unique cities in America.

It will be a pleasure to show you around.

I first began living in New Orleans in 1983 when I was working in the kitchen of the Royal Sonesta Hotel (during my externship from the Culinary Institute of America). It was then that I fell in love with this city. I had found my home. . . a culinary mecca nestled within a spirit of effervescent charm.

To say that there's much more to this city than Bourbon St. is an understatement. There are in all 1550 restaurants in the metropolitan area, (not counting fast food, national chains or takeout). As you know, many of life's most enduring moments are shared during a good meal and I can promise you delectable new memories as a guest in the Crescent City!

Endlessly fascinated by the rich history of New Orleans, I love to share my knowledge. The city's deep-rooted Catholic culture, its eclectic architecture and its unparalleled personality are of particular interest, I love discovering the nuances.

I offer small, private tours up to 4 people, though accommodations can be made for families. Most of my tours are driving as it can get very hot in New Orleans. For those places that are better seen on foot, weather permitting, we will walk.

A Recent Review of this guide

Stephen was a terrific guide. He knows the area, and he has wonderful personal background about the city. Also: we explained that our 99 year old mom would be with us, and he specifically designed a driving tour with very little walking, and included a special request tour. A wonderful experience for us.
