Highly recommended! We booked Ashton for a three hour private (8 people) walking tour of the French Quarter. We were trying to please a variety of people, so I asked him for some history, some food, and some drinks, and he did an awesome job accommodating. He was also flexible along the tour when people wanted to make some unanticipated stops (such as seeing the house Brad and Angelina rented). Ashton was very personable and made the experience fun and informative (and not stereotypically touristy).

A very enjoyable day spent with Ashton! He is very knowledgeable and we enjoyed listening to his tales and facts regarding his city and countryside. He was prompt meeting us and navigated the city well in his newer model van. Recommended a great spot for our lunch. All,in all, a great day and we recommend using his services.

Ashton showed us a different part of town away from Bourbon Street. We loved seeing the historic homes and hearing the history associated with these gorgeous properties. Another great way to start the day and see another side of New Orleans. We highly recommend you contact Ashton to enhance your New Orleans experience.

Ashton was great. He drove me and my college age daughter. He took us around the Garden District and Tulane University, exactly what we asked to do. He was extremely informative, professional and personable. My daughter really enjoyed learning from Ashton and so did I. I honestly don't think you could possibly hire a better guide. Ashton was also extremely clean cut and drove us in a very nice, clean new car.

He had our speed within minutes of meeting us and as a result gave a tour that felt as if it had been personally tailored for us, which made it all the more enjoyable.

Ashton was knowledgeable and engaging. We learned a lot about history (which is what we wanted), but because of the way he used stories about the wild characters in New Orleans' past to deliver that history, it never felt like a lesson. We appreciated his willingness to put together a custom tour for our group of 12, and everyone really enjoyed it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tammy! I had a great time meeting your group, and I hope to see you again.

This is an awesome tour and Ashton was great! We don't like big tour groups but wanted to learn more about the city - a small pub crawl was perfect for that. New Orleans can be a overwhelming - hundreds of places to go and big crowds - nice to have someone steer you in the right direction. Ashton took us to three unique pubs and also for a quick walk to the river. We learned a huge amount from him, had great drinks, and truly enjoyed his company! A wonderful experience - we highly recommend it!

Ashton was wonderful! We were on a family trip with 5 siblings and spouses: 9 all in our 60's on a walking tour of the French Quarter. We have some very experienced travelers, so he had a tough audience. But, he won everyone over. He is very tall, easy to see, and his voice was very easy to hear and understand. His style was laid back with many interesting tidbits to add to the history. He was very patient and suited our group to a tee. We recommend him to anyone.
