Charles D.

New Orleans, LA, United States

Greetings! I have been a New Orleans Tour Guide for 19 years and am easily one of the most well known and recognizable people on the streets of the French Quarter.

The Tricentennial Commission chose eleven guides to be official representatives of New Orleans for our 300th anniversary and I am one of them!

I have done a bit of everything: Ghost tours, Cemetery Tours, Garden District Tours, French Quarter History Tours, Vodou Tours. I have engaged people on foot, on bus with mule and buggy and on Segway. I ran for local political office and have been a public school teacher.

You will find me a most knowledgeable and entertaining guide because I take it all with a grain of salt. You're not here for a lecture. You want this to be fun. The highest compliment I ever received was "You're the three e's. . . Entertaining, Engaging and Educational. "

I will do my very best to make sure your experience is relatable , enjoyable and edifying. . . no matter which tour you choose! But if you were looking for "something else" I can customize any tour to your needs or create "something completely different. " Any way, we're going to have a great time!

Credentials

Licensed Tour Guide of the City of New Orleans since 2000
Passed the Foreign Service Exam
Former public school teacher

Restrictions

My only restriction is that I can give tours only in the English language.
