My wife and I have used Tours By Locals the last three summers. All three of the tour guides we have selected were excellent. This year Dominick Musso provided us with a tour of New Orleans. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Anyone planning a trip to New Orleans I recommend booking with Dominick.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I've been told that limitations are opportunities! Everyone has limitations; I have several...dozen! Allot the entire day to see two plantations and take your time. If you go to Oak Alley first, you may need to double back 10 minutes to BC before heading elsewhere for if you're there by 10am, that infers a 1 hour drive there, 1.5 hours o site...therefore about lunch time. If you are going to Houmas House after Oak Alley (have dinner at Houmas) but you'll arrive around 1pm for lunch. ..on the east bank

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.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. It is always a pleasure to tour with family. I am glad my love for the city was obvious and hopefully "I spread the love" and you too have an updated view of our history, people and culture. Come back for Mardi Gras but remember, ADVANCE NOTICE. Hope to see you again. Thanks. Dominick

After touring with Dominick on a fantastic city driving tour, we wanted to see more, so asked if he could book a swamp tour. While we realized it was short notice, he was graciously able to schedule a tour two days later. He arranged all the details, including a covered boat to protect us from the sun. We enjoyed seeing the local wildlife and learning about life on the swamp. It was a lovely day with no bugs!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: No bugs! I am so glad the short notice Tour worked out. The swamp is a beautiful place just to look at to say nothing of the animals! Thanks for visiting my home town. I hope to see you again. Dominick

Our group of four visitors all felt very fortunate to have selected Dominick as our tour guide. His delightful running commentary during our driving tour was very informative, engaging, and exceeded our expectations. We were fascinated by the city's history, the aftermath of Katrina, and the unique culture of NOLA as only a local with Dominick's passion and knowledge could convey. Will definitely book with him again next time we visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words. You all made the tour better by listening and asking good questions. I hope to see you again. Remember I offer Mardi Gras experiences too! Dominick

We highly recommend Dominick's tour of New Orleans. It was one of the best tours we have experienced during many years of travel. Born, raised and educated in New Orleans gives Dominick unique perspective on so many facets of New Orlean's past, present and future, which he clearly expressed... His explanation of how the flooding occurred and what has been done since to prevent a future occurrence was fascinating; just the Ninth Ward part of the tour was worth the price of the tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy to know that you had fun and learned something about New Orleans! It is always fun for me to truly inform visitors and offer an accurate depiction of Katrina, Mardi Gras and other things, for the media doesn't always understand or portray New Orleans correctly. Thanks for visiting New Orleans . I hope your entire trip was full of nice people, good food and music. Thanks for selecting me to be your guide and New Orleans as your destination. Hope to see you again. Dominick

Dominick is a wonderful guide! We spent the morning learning about the history and architecture of the French Quarter, including our hotel, and the afternoon seeing the rest of the city and learning about the reality of Hurricane Katrina's effect on the city. Dominick is very knowledgeable about the city and kept it interesting and informative. I would highly recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am delighted that you were happy with our time together. I hope you also enjoyed the city itself and were treated in a friendly manner by everyone you met while here. Thanks for selecting me to be your guide and New Orleans as your destination. Dominick

Our group of 4 had a thoroughly enjoyable and informative full day tour. His van affords easy access and comfort. We enjoyed a tasty lunch at a local shop in the garden district. His attention to detail, history and local rebuilding following "Katrina" captures your attention. Small group touring outweighs the cost rather than trailing along in a massive group, not being able to hear host, or playing the waiting game for stragglers. You won't be disappointed on tour with Dominic.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy that you enjoyed our time together. I hope you had fun, but also learned something about New Orleans, my hometown. I also hope that your entire trip to New Orleans was filled with friendly people, good food and something cold to drink. Hope to see you again...maybe during Mari Gras! Thanks, Dominick

Fantastic tour. Dominick's background as a urban planner gave him rare insights about the demographics and geography of New Orleans that made the story of what happened with Katrina rich with detail. His was engaging both to adults and children alike, which is rare in a guide. We would definitely recommend him.

The Garden District is very interesting for its great 19th Century house which are all still family homes. Dominick was very knowledgeable about the whole area. The Commandeers Palace is a fabulous restaurant and we had a world class meal and experience there.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad you took the time to see the Garden District neighborhood and compare it to the French Quarter. It is representative of the wealth that was present here in the 1800s in New Orleans as a result of the port's development.

Also, Dominick's professional relationships with plantation staff made our visits go extremely smoothly. We very highly recommend touring with Dominick!

Date: Mar 24/17

We had a wonderful, 7 hr citywide walking/driving tour, including a terrific lunch at a special spot. Dominick is warm and engaging - and a consummate professional who organizes everything perfectly to meet his travelers' wishes. He reveals NOLA as only a native can, lovingly sharing its history, architecture, culture and cuisine; Katrina and Mardi Gras; what it's like to grow up in NOLA; and more. We felt entertained, informed, and cared for like friends. We very highly recommed touring with Dominick!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You all made the tours what they were. You were attentive, flexible and engaged. You guys would be a good Mardi Gras group! We could avoid the raunchy side of Mardi Gras and go right to the elegance and sophisticated side with private reviewing stand seats, tickets to private events, scheduled dinners and a Mardi Gras ball in tuxedoes and long dresses? If that remotely interests you we need 6 months notice to commit to tickets when made available. Thanks, Dominick

Dominick is an excellent tour guide. We had a custom tour combining a plantation and swamp that was very enjoyable. We discovered a new restaurant and had a great time!! As the ad says: Stop clicking around.. Book your tour with Dominick.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words. I am glad you had a good time on both tours. They were quite different but both had something different to offer. Your questions made the tour more enjoyable and I hope you learned a lot about the people, place and history of New Orleans. Please come back and see us and tell your friends New Orleans's a great place to visit. Dominick

Truly an excellent guide. We have used tours by locals in the U.S. and Europe. Dominick is experienced, knowledgable, punctual, considerate of individual needs and desires, flexible, and accomodating. He also is an excellent communicator. He offers a variety of tours. We chose the citywide driving tour, in part because of health considerations and limited ability to walk. It included the Quarter, a lot about Katrina and its effects as well as a plantation tour. I whole-heartedly recommend Dominick.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am delighted to know you had a good tour. I hope you have a better appreciation for the people, culture and history of New Orleans. Thanks for selecting me to be your guide and for choosing New Orleans to visit. Please come back and see us. Dominick

Hi My name is Paul and my wife is Pam. We meet up with Dominick about 9 days befor Fat Tuesday. He totally enlightened in all matters concerning Mardi Gras for that we thank him. He did a wonderful job of showing us the many wonders of New Orleans including the hardship Katrina brought, the history of New Orleans and the French Quarter, an over all understanding of the food and atmosphere. If we return to New Orleans we will be seeing Dominick for certain. Thanks for everything Dominick

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so glad you had a good time on your trip and during our tours. New Orleans is a great city when you let her in and you did that! I hope you learned a lot, had some great food and realized the people of New Orleans are friendly and accommodating. I hope to see you again.

As a retired couple that had grown up in Baton Rouge and visited New Orleans often, we thought there wouldn't be much that Dominick could tell us that we didn't already know. Well we were certainly wrong! Dominick was delightful and we learned quite a bit about the history and personalities that make up the rich fabric of the French Quarter. I highly recommend his tours to anyone and everyone, including us "locals" who think we already know all that there is to know about the Big Easy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a delight to share New Orleans with some "natives" and your friend Greg. There is so much that makes this city what it is and it is fun to help visitors (whether first timers or locals) understand the factors that make New Orleans so unique. Funny, I just got a call from Falls Church and before answering it thought it was you! Next time the Garden District and Commander's! I can taste it now. Or you could ride in a Mardi Gras parade? Hope to see you again. Thanks, Dominick

Dominick is truly gifted in his deep and personal knowledge of the city. He is so knowledgeable that it may be beneficial to tell him what interests you and allow him plan it all. I'm thrilled that part of our tour was rained out because it allowed him to do his thing. I learned the TRUE history of the city rather than the "publicized" fiction that is portrayed by the media. I have a new understanding of what really happened in Katrina and why. With knowledge comes respect.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am so happy that you enjoyed your time with me. I am also happy that you chose to discuss and learn about Katrina for it is as important as any historic event in the city's 300 year history. Visitors like you help the city recover and one person at a time I will explain what happened, why and what we have done to prevent another disaster. Thanks for being flexible with the weather.

The second time, we went on a Swamp tour and to Oak Alley Plantation. We had wonderful lunches both times, too! When we return to NOLA, we will definitely ask Dominick to be our tour guide again! Thanks, Dom! We appreciate your thoughtfulness and professionalism in giving us GREAT tours! Until we meet again!

We went to the plantation, Destrehan, as it is reasonably handicapped accessible and my husband is in a wheelchair. Dominick warned us that there are some gravel pathways and thresholds in the plantation to overcome, so we came prepared with a couple of strong arms to help over some of the trickier areas. But otherwise, we would not be able to see something like this, a wonderful part of New Orleans history. Amazing construction, very informative tour, & Dominick was able to answer all questions.

Dominick did a fantastic job! We had a group of 8 adults including 2 people with some mobility issues. Dominick was very accommodating and adjusted the tour on the fly when we needed to. He is very knowledgeable and has a number of support materials that he shares to make it easier to understand how New Orleans was developed and evolved over time. He has a passion for the city and it shows. Our group agreed that our entire trip was significantly better because we started it with a tour from Dominick.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate the kind sentiments. I am glad your overall trip went well and that our time together was enjoyable and informative. You all were also adaptive with regard to our plan and mobility limits and that made everything easy. I hope the city left a good impression and I hope to see you again. Thanks, Dominick

Having Dominick as a tour guide was wonderful. After meeting with him it was like we all knew him for years and it was like having your best friend taking you through New Orleans. His knowledge of the area is vast along with the history of the plantations, the French Quarter, the Garden District. He is home grown and has a love for Louisiana and surrounding area that translates to the best tour ever. I will happily recommend him to my clients and use him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad that my love for this place came across. It is the reason why I do tours! The tour was better because you all asked good questions, engaged and discussed things rather than sit and listen to me. I do hope that you learned something about the people, place and culture as well as history. In a post-Katrina New Orleans we need more visitors like you to help us continue our path to recovery; thanks for selecting me to be your guide and for making New Orleans your destination. Thanks, Dominick

Dominick brings a true local perspective to his tours and this combined with his passion and energy for bringing New Orleans to life makes him an excellent guide. I am normally reluctant to book a walking tour for over two hours as that is about the maximum amount of time my interest can be retained. Dominick had no problem keeping our interest for the full 3 hour tour as he has great stories and a communication style to keep one engaged. I highly recommend him as a New Orleans tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a pleasure to have you both tour the French Quarter and see it through my eyes this time. The Quarter is a unique place and I hope the information discussed gave you new insight to the people, place and culture of New Orleans. There are many places outside the Quarter to see for New Orleans has many beautiful neighborhoods. Hopefully you'll be back some day and visit places visitors rarely see. Thanks for choosing me and for making New Orleans your travel destination. Dominick

Dominick is an excellent tour guide. He is focused, well prepared and very courteous. He customized our day to address our different interests and questions. He introduced us to New Orleans - both the history and the culture. We saw the city through the eyes of a third generation resident who clearly loves his city - both her strengths and her challenges. We learned about the progress being made after Katrina and the positive future ahead. I would highly recommend him if you enjoy learning.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am glad that you enjoyed our time together. I am also glad that the weather cooperated during your stay. Hopefully the city left a positive impression, enough for you to visit again. Thanks for making New Orleans your warm weather destination. Dominick
