Cassandra was an exceptional guide. She was knowledgeable and friendly. I emailed her a few days before our tour to tell her a bit about my family and our interests. As a result, she happily made small but important modifications to our tour to make it more personal. At my request, Cassandra took time at the end of our tour to make well thought out music recommendations. We relied on her suggestions and are so happy we did. They made a huge, happy difference in our trip. I strongly recommend Casandra.

Cassandra met us just a few meters from our hotel and gave us a wonderful introduction to New Orleans. It was interesting to learn the geographical and historical background of this vibrant city. Her tour gave us a new prospective and Cassandra gave us lots of tips on where to eat and other places to visit. Her enthusiasm and wonderful way to approach her explanation made the 2.5 hours just fly by far too fast. She is a fantastic tour guide, full of humour and energy. We loved this tour, highly recomend

Cassandra was very good. We enjoyed our walk through the French Quarter with Cassandra. She has good knowledge of the history of the area but the great surprise was she studies culinary history which was so interesting to hear. New Orleans food is world famous and learning more about the history of food in New Orleans was a wonderful bonus during our walk.

Excellent tour. We were rushing a bit to stay ahead of a major thunderstorm -- unsuccessfully! -- but Cassandra was very, very good gave us a nice introduction to New Orleans, it's history and geography, before we began and then a block by block, house by house, tour of the French Quarter. Had answers to almost all of our questions -- very knowledgeable and professional. Could not recommend her more highly.

Cassandra provided a great tour of the French Quarter and it's surrounds....good knowledge of the local history with good insights on her part. We enjoyed the entire 2 1/2 hours immensely and would highly recommend her if you are visiting the area. Finally......Cassandra speaks clearly and distinctly which made the whole experience much more pleasant.

This was an outstanding tour! We really enjoyed it and thought Cassandra did a great job of both hitting the highlights and making the tour match our specific interests (music and food). I would definitely take another tour with her and actually hope to do so next time we return to New Orleans.

Cassandra met us at the agreed time the motel, gave us good information and stories about the history and local events. She was very comfortable with people we met, knew some of the local people, recommend activities and restaurants for us to visit. She showed us various types of architecture by a variety of immigrant people (French, Italian, etc.). We appreciated her response to all of our questions. We gladly recommend her to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you John! It was a pleasure to meet you and Janet. Best wishes for future travel adventures. Cassandra

Not only was the photography choices chosen by Cassandra excellent, her knowledge of everywhere we went and saw was exceptionable. I learned a great deal more of New Orleans than I even had questions for. The experience was certainly five star and I would certainly suggest other photographers to contact Cassandra.

A couple of four hour tours with Cassandra was a great way to experience the parts of New Orleans we wanted to see without suffering through the parts we had no interest in. We definitely visited areas that the big tours would never show you and got to hear first hand about the city. Well worth the time and effort and by far the best way to see the city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Alan. It was really nice being with you and Ruby, I especially enjoyed going to Longue Vue Gardens. Take care. p.s. I got the car!

Cassandra was very professional, friendly, and helpful. She obviously knows her history, and was very good at helping us discover restaurants and jazz clubs we would not have found on our own. We are very glad we booked this tour and would recommend it to anyone who wants a personal view of the French Quarter and beyond. Thanks Cassandra!!!

We have been to New Orleans many times and taken several packaged tours of the French Quarter. Cassandra was our private guide and customized the tour so that we learned things and saw areas that we did not know. She took us to City park which is worth a tour itself next trip. I hope to convince my husband to take a culinary bike tour with her.

What better way to explore New Orleans than with a wonderful guide like Cassandra! The route of our walking tour was agreed in advance and we strolled the highways and byways of the French Quarter with Cassandra providing excellent narrative every step of the way. Cassandra also gave very helpful suggestions and much appreciated assistance with other sightseeing ideas during our stay in New Orleans.

I found the tour with Cassandra Synder, the tour guide, most informative and enjoyable. In three short hours of easy walking, Cassandra brought the past and present of New Orleans alive with memorable stories of colorful characters as well as a host of helpful tips on visiting and living in New Orleans. I would highly recommend this tour to make your visit to New Orleans so much more fun.
