Matt was wonderful! He took us all around NOLA and was very informative and knowledgeable. We were together for 6 hours, which just flew by. He treated us to a very good Muffuletta and a trio of New Orleans favorite dishes. I highly recommend a tour with Matt.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Catherine, I really enjoyed our day. It was fun meeting you and Dave’s cruise buddies! I had a blast with everyone and so happy we got lucky with the weather. I hope the rest of your trip is awesome. Stay dry/cool.

Matt was unbelievably knowledgeable about New Orleans.. He grew up there and his love of history and his personal knowledge of the area combined for one of the best tours my wife and I have ever had!! We booked with short notice and the fine folks at Tours by Locals hooked us up with Matt... We saw the entire area and got to sample some excellent food and see all of the great neighborhoods that make up New Orleans... Do yourself a favor and book your tour soon! Thank you Matt for a spectacular day!!

Matt is absolutely the best tour guide in New Orleans. I give him 5 stars for his knowledge of New Orleans area. You couldn't ask for a more perfect gentleman, opening car doors, helping us "not so young ladies" into the car and pushing my friend in her assist chair when she got tired and was unable to walk .Matt even went out of his way to get a vehicle us ladies could easily get in and out of, we really appreciated his kind and thoughtfulness on out tour.Thanks Matt, 2 thumbs up on your incredible tour
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Melanie and Barbara!!!! It was so nice to spend the day with you ladies. I understood what an important trip it was for you and I was proud to be part of it. Thanks for sharing with me. Good luck in school.

We were more than thrilled with our private tour of New Orleans. I spoke to Matt and told him the basic sites we wanted to see and those we had no interest in. I also requested a tour to a site of private interest and Matt arranged a private tour of the site. He also took us to a beautiful sculpture garden on the outskirts of the city where we were able to have our coffee and beignets. He added a brief visit to a chef's market where he treated us to some typical New Orleans food. He was a joy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Judy!!! I was able to see your feedback and I’m touched. Our day together was special to me and going to Touro with you was something I’ll never forget. I hope you enjoyed the entertainment on the cruise ship and that I’ll see you again.

My wife and I did the driving/ walking tour with Matt it was outstanding!!!! Matt is born and raised there and has a deep love for the city and it's history. Matt takes you off the path of tourism while filling you with history facts that as my wife says will blow your mind. He will help you with the layout of the area so you know where you are and going. Matt is a wealth of knowledge, kind and courteous person. Will recommend this tour and guide to all my friends and family.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You two were simply amazing to spend time with. I do this because I love it and spending time with people like ya’ll just makes me want to give better tours. You’ll be my first call if I find myself in the Tampa area. Your Friend, Matt
We had a wonderful day with Matt. He was in contact before the tour and arrived early. He is knowledgeable, friendly and totally dedicated to New Orleans. The day was very personal - we saw all the advertised 'places to go' and many others all round the city. Would thoroughly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Greg and Jane, you both wonderful people and I really enjoyed our day together. I hope you enjoy the rest of your trip through the south but I hope New Orleans will be your favorite! I hope we stay in touch and that we play 18 in Brisbane. Matt

Matt was awesome. He embodies New Orleans. He has great knowledge of history, local folklore and a first hand lifetime experience of the city. In pure gumbo fashion, a tour with Matt is founded with a trinity of sincere kindness, a sense of family, and a joie de vivre. Combined with Southern hospitality....an added sprinkling of "Matt" humor....and professional service. Gentle heat. Subtle hint of playful nuttiness. Like a gumbo....the result is a truly divine Louisiana experience!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're a great writer! Wow, I had such a great time showing you all my favorite spots, famous and local. I'm glad to have made new friends and I can't wait for you to come back.
