Dominick was a excellent guide. We planned and booked a custom trip only the night before and Dominick was great helping us get this set-up at the last minute. He is knowledgable, entertaining and easy to be with. We walked the French Quarter, had lunch and then toured the Garden District and saw some local areas affected by Katrina. We enjoyed his many stories which brought New Orleans history to life. I recommend booking a trip with Dominick.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much for the kind words. For a short-notice tour things did work out. Hopefully we'll see you again, back in the Big Easy. Dominick

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

Dominic had great historical knowledge of New Orleans. Although I had been to the city several times, I learned more from him than all the previous other visits. We were traveling with my 83 yr old mother and while she is mobile, she is slow. He was very accommodating to her needs during our city walk. He was also great in communicating with us prior to our arrival which I loved!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to show you New Orleans. I do hope you have a better understanding of the history, people And culture of New Orleans. Thanks for choosing New Orleans as a destination. Hope to see you again. Dominick

Dominick is a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable local guide. Our group had a very good 3 hour stroll around the French Quarter, not only learning its history but Dominick pointed out restaurants and booked one for our dinner He was also very helpful before our trip assisting with where we should (and should not) book accomodation Paul Sydney Australia

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for selecting me as a guide. Thanks too for taking my advice with respect to accommodations for part of my job is to keep you safe during your stay and I appreciate the fact that you took my advice. Should you choose to come back to participate in Mardi Gras just let me know and I can make it happen for some of you as riders, all of you plus wives/girlfriends too. I hope New Orleans was a fun destination. Dominick

The tour overall was good, and he did a great job engaging the children ranging from 4-12 we had with us. However, he presented a somewhat revisionist history of New Orleans regarding slavery and the Civil War. He suggested one of the kids was wrong when she said the Civil War was about slavery, and also spent time talking about how good slaves in NOLA had it. It was inaccurate and was not what we hoped for the kids to hear. This subtle racism was our only complaint, and we enjoyed the tour otherwise.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry to hear you felt I presented a racist view of slavery, for I certainly do not hold racist opinions. I compared slavery in New Orleans to that of other places in America and most historians would hold that conditions here (while terrible) were better than elsewhere in America because of Code Noir and the French King's paternal policies.

Dominick gave my husband and I an amazing tour of the French Quarter. He was extremely knowledgable and shared the history of the city with us and told us some great stories about the area. We had a wonderful time on the tour and highly recommend it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for visiting New Orleans. I enjoyed meeting you both and hope that our time together gave you a better understanding of the city and its people. It is an amazing place and I am glad that I could share it with you. Come back and see us!

An excellent tour with a wonderful guide. Before we arrived Dom liaised with us not only about our tour but also offered us really useful recommendations and suggestions for the whole of our stay in New Orleans. We would not hesitate in recommending Dom, he loves his city and it shows. He is enthusiastic, knowledgeable with a very friendly manner. Our tour of the Upper French Quarter was interesting and informative and really gave us an insight into the area and people,everything we wanted and more.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Again, thanks for your review. I appreciate the fact that you chose me to conduct your tour and give me the opportunity to show you some Big Easy hospitality! Hope to see you again someday. Dom Musso
