TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Zenobia, thanks for the nice review. Let me know if you need my assistance in getting information regarding touring the Whitney Plantation. It is located approximately 1 hour outside New Orleans. You can get the schedule and the cost from the website. If you need any other information, contact either Yvonne or Ali. Yvonne is a manager and Ali is one of the tour guides and he is the best.

It was nice to hear New Orleans history from a native. Her personal recollections of the city added to the tour.
Muriel was very professional, well prepared and she could give us a complete frame of the city during this tour. She paid attention also to our two girls in involving them showing them some children hightlights even if it was not part of the tour program. She gave also us a lot of interesting tips with regard to Restaurants and other things to do and see in the city. We recommend her to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Barbara, Thank you for the nice review. I enjoyed my time with you and your family. I returned to the area and dropped off the Mardi Gras beads for your girls. If you have any questions while in town, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Muriel

I choose Muriel from a list of guides from Tours by Locals and I was not disappointed and felt she was a great choice. She was genuine and open to questions and was relaxed but full of interesting information. We all really enjoyed the morning tour with her. Thanks again Murial.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Fiona!

What I delightful day I spent with Muriel learning about the history and culture of New Orleans. She shared many personal stories of growing up there as well a taking me to a favorite local restaurant. I had been to NOLA before, but this time I came away with a deeper understanding of the people and place. At the end of the day, I felt that I had a new friend!

Muriel was a wonderful guide. She thoughtfully made sure we did not get too hot in the sweltering weather....suggesting we meet earlier to avoid crowds. Her knowledge of New Orleans and its history was refreshing to learn. We enjoyed our tour very much! Thanks Muriel!
Bill DeyoUnited States
Muriel was outstanding! She is extremely knowledgeable and brought the history of the Cathedral of Guadalupe and it cemetery to life ... she has a quick wit and a rye sense of humor and we thoroughly enjoyed our tour with her. As a point of interest, during our tour another guide acknowledged Muriel's expertise to his own group
Diana CohenUnited States
Muriel was very knowledgeable and helpful during our tour with her. We really enjoyed getting to know her and her experiences in New Orleans. I would recommend her to anybody wanting a private look at the city and it's surroundings.
Susette IngraoUnited States
Very good; worth it totally. A few would have liked more time/details reArmstrong park & garden district. Thank you! Comfortable vehicle; appreciated drinks.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Suzette, Thank you for the review. I would have liked to spend more time regarding Louis Armstrong and the Garden District. Due to the wait at Willie Mae’s and needing to meet your friends at a certain time I did the best I could to accommodate your request by extending the tour beyond the 3 hour scheduled time.
Muriel was absolutely amazing to work with from start to finish! Strongly recommend her and her group of guides.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You Fanny! Everyone enjoyed working with your group. The crawfish event was amazing. Muriel
Wow! What a wonderful tour of New Orleans!! Thank you to Muriel for providing a most enjoyable and educational tour! Muriel was fun, knowledgeable and did an excellent job driving us all over the city to the key sites. We had an amazing day, incl. a delicious lunch at Mandina's. We thoroughly enjoyed Muriel's company and her wealth of knowledge. We asked her for a good place to hear classic jazz. She recommended the Palm Court Jazz Club, which was magical! The food and jazz were so great, we went twice!!

Muriel and her driver, Renee, were exquisite. We had the best time and she tailored the tour perfectly for our eclectic group (17 of us). She was very knowledgeable, had great stories about New Orleans and we saw things I have not seen in my previous 5 trips to New Orleans. She was prompt, patient and made sure we stayed on a schedule that would allow us to get the best from our trip. I cannot recommend her enough and if you've got a chance be sure to pick Muriel. Thank you Muriel and Renee.
Allison GarciaUnited States
I had a great morning with Muriel today and got to learn so much about NOLA - she was absolutely lovely to spend time with and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a locals perspective. We visited the Garden Distrcit, St Louis Cemetary, areas impacted by Katrina and then had a fanstastic lunch at Jackson Sqaure. It was a super short three hours and I left planning my next visit already. Thank you so much!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Allison, I hope we get to meet again. Muriel
Fred GreenbergUnited States
We spent most of the day with Muriel and had a really great experience. She was very knowledeable and informative. Her cemetery portion of the tour was great as was our drive through various parts of the city and out to the lake. We also visited a plantation but would have preferred one further out but time did not allow. We also stopped for a great lunch at Dooky Chase a NOLA landmark.
Julene A.United States
Muriel was amazing. She had so many great stories and inside knowledge about the area. I would highly recommend her to any that wants to see the highlights of New Orleans.

Donna YoungUnited States
Muriel was outstanding! I was not sure exactly which cemeteries I wanted to see or in what order or how much time the tour would take. Muriel was so flexible, and I followed her suggestions. She took me and my friend to places I did not even know about and every single place was so interesting. She was born and grew up in New Orleans and has an amazing knowledge of the history and quirks of the area. She took us to the places I had on a my list as well as her suggestions. I will always book with Muriel!
Phil CleggUnited States
Muriel was spectacular as our guide! She was personable and made our group of college students feel at ease and comfortable for an evening tour of the French Quarter. Her knowledge of the history and culture was inspiring and she left the group wanting to know even more about the great history of New Orleans. I would recommend her to any group. Thanks for a wonderful tour, great communication and impeccable professionalism.
Dawn Van WagenenUnited States
Muriel guided us on an amazing tour! Two of us on the tour had been to NOLA several times and two were there for their first time, yet we all learned a lot on this tour. Muriel had both humorous and serious stories related to all that we saw on the tour. She was also very patient with our questions. I hope that Muriel guides for other tours in NOLA, as I will request her for our next tour.
Joseph ByrdUnited States
Ms. Muriel was absolutely wonderful, very professional and very knowledgeable of this city, we enjoyed her and the tour was excellent
