Tonnie MasonUnited States
Michaela was a wonderfully enthusiastic guide. We learned so much about the city, from history to culture, including Katrina-related information. We appreciated the ability to try some local cuisine (beignets and cannoli). Our kids (15 and 11) had plenty of opportunities to ask questions, which helped them enjoy learning about New Orleans as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tonni, I am so happy you enjoyed my tour. I truly enjoyed sharing my knowledge with you guys. Please stay safe on your travels and I hope to see you back in NOLA soon. Michaela

This was a GREAT tour. Michaela is a wonderful guide! She truly loves & knows New Orleans. We were able to add a cemetery stop to this tour for a small addition. We were in NOLA the Friday before Mardi Gras, Michaela ordered the tour to hit those areas early that would be crowded later. The trip to Evergreen Plantation was so interesting as well. This tour offers the perfect combo of New Orleans, French Quarter, & plantation. I'd highly recommend Michaela & this tour, you won't be disappointed!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure touring you through this amazing city! I hope to see you back soon!

William DanielUnited States
Michaela was outstanding and so beautiful! Bad weather impacted our original schedule and she went out of her way to help us reschedule. Her tour was full of information that we really appreciated. We learned much about not only the traditional New Orleans' downtown areas but also important information about the Garden District & it's beautiful homes, the 9th Ward, the universities and the impact of historic storms. She was diligent in making sure we saw areas that we wanted to see. Highly recommend her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Bill, It was my pleasure showing you and your lovely wife my amazing city. Enjoy your 40th anniversary . Michaela

Lynda WagnerUnited States
Awesome - just awesome. Our first time in New Orleans and we were so grateful that our time there started off with Michaela leading the way. We got to see so much of this amazing city in a short amount of time and then got to pinpoint where we wanted to spend the rest our limited time. We didn't just get an introduction to a city - we were gifted the opportunity to get to know a community. And we loved it!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am thrilled that you enjoyed and understand this amazing city. I truly enjoyed my day with you guys. I hope to see you back in NOLA in the near future. Until next time. Michaela

Rosalie N.United States
If you are looking for a guide that knows their NOLA History, plenty of pop culture fun facts, and treats you like you are truly part of her family, then Michaela is the guide for you! This is no exaggeration and the first tour we left wishing there was more time. We worked on our itinerary for almost a year with Michaela giving us her expert advice throughout the process. We hit all the spots on our list and then some. Should we find ourselves here again we would not hesitate to give Michaela a call.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So happy you and your mom enjoyed seeing NOLA. Have a great time on your cruise. I hope to see you back in Nola soon. Until next time....
William Dozier JrUnited States
This was the highlight of our trip! Michaela was awesome and her personality shines. We learned a lot about the history of New Orleans from it's start, to Katrina, and post Katerina while driving and walking around taking in sights. She would also point out the quirkyness New Orleans has to offer that makes it unique. Whether it's your first time in the city or you've been before but never had a tour, I highly recommend it. Thanks for the fun! PS. Her Mercedes van was clean and comfortable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey William, Thank you for such kind words. So happy you enjoyed touring NOLA with me. I hope to see you back in NOLA in the soon. Until next time.... Michaela
Lori AndersonUnited States
Michaela was wonderful!! There were 5 of us, and in researching restaurant tours available in New Orleans, most involved a lot of walking. There were a few in our group who weren't capable of long walks, so I contacted Michaela and she assured us she could accommodate our mobility issues. We had such a good time! She picked us up at our door (we stayed in a VRBO) and drove us all over the city, giving us a history of the Cajun and Creole influences that shaped the food culture in NOLA. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lori! It was my pleasure! Happy you all enjoyed this great city. I hope to see you back in the near future!! Until next time!!
Robert LoebUnited States
Great guide! Very very knowledgeable. We have used a number of guides and I would read her at the top. Loves her city, the people and the culture. Reflects her feelings very well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Robert! So happy you enjoyed your tour!! Thank you for the kind words! Hope to see you back in NOLA!
Linda StirlingUnited States
Our guide was outstanding in every respect - knowledgeable, flexible, humorous, a great tour. There's nothing better than having a third generation native guiding you through the city she loves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Linda, So happy you enjoy the tour! Easy todo when you have travelers like you, Larry and your guest. Please have a great night. Until next time
Bill YatesUnited States
Michaela is one of the best tour guides we have encountered. We had a very diverse group and she handled everyone perfectly. She helped us to experience great and authentic New Orleans food that we would not have found on our own. A worthwhile tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Happy you guys had fun today. I hope to see you back in NOLA soon. Until next time

Michaela gave us a great tour of the cemeteries of NO. She is very knowledgeable of the history of NO. She showed up on time. Car immaculate. And spent extra time taking us around the garden district.

Kevin RuhUnited States
Michaela is awesome! I wish there were more than five stars to give.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kevin!!! I hope to see you back in NOLA soon!!
Kevin RuhUnited States
Michaela is, in a word, wonderful. My husband, Josh, and I spent Labor Day 2019 in New Orleans, with a cousin and college-mate, and we used Michaela for this and a historic/nature tour on a separate day. In both, we felt safe, comfortable, excited, and ready to fill our stomachs and our minds. She did not let us down. I can honestly say that Michaela is our favorite guide since we started using ToursByLocals 5 years and 20 tours ago.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Kevin, Sorry for the late reply. I am trilled you guys enjoyed touring with me. I truly had a blast with you guys.Please give me a call the next time in NOLA. until next time ...
Regina IngleUnited States
Fantastic! The tour covered everything I and my 3 other family members wanted to see, with adequate time available for pictures and souvenirs. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable. Michaela was an amazing Guide - she had more information than a history book! She conducted the tour with a friendly, positive attitude and engaged us in fun conversation. Communication prior to our arrival was great. If you're headed to NOLA, I highly recommend Michaela as your Guide - you won't be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure showing you New Orleans. I hope to see you soon. Until next time....
Sarah NellUnited States
Mickey was the best thing in a city of best things. She is warm, jovial, and willing to share her city with complete strangers. If you want a delicious afternoon filled with good food and conversation, this is the tour to take. You'll see the side of New Orleans the locals love, while leaving bourbon street behind. Worth every penny!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for rating your tour. I hope you and Alex enjoyed New Orleans . Please let me know if I can be of any questions while your here! Until next time ! Michaela
Rita RoartyUnited States
Michaela went above and beyond as our tour guide. She spent more than three hours with us. She showed us every inch of New Orleans plus some (including Dr. John's Second Line Parade, which we participated in). This was my first time taking a guided tour. MIchaela made us very comfortable. So glad she was our guide. We loved every minute of our time spent with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rita! So happy you all enjoyed your tour! Dr. John’s second line was awesome! I hope to see you back in NOLA! Until next time Michaela
Sara ShaveUnited States

Melinda PendletonUnited States
We had a great time on our tour! There were 6 of us, 21 and up, and we all agreed that it was a highlight of our trip. As first time visitors to New Orleans it was a great way to start the week and Michaela was knowledgeable, accommodating, energetic and pleasant. Along the way she made some great recommendations for the rest of our time in New Orleans. We highly recommend this tour and Michaela as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi there! So happy you all enjoy your time here in New Orleans ! Until next time...
Michaela is a super knowledgeable local tour guide. She showed us places we would never have otherwise seen. Great tour!

Lynda LaxUnited States
A totally enjoyable tour with great information and side notes. We had our 30 year olds and us Michaela was right on with the pace and information that was interesting to both generations. Would do this again with her 100%
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Lynda!! I enjoyed showing you and your fantastic family this great city!! I hope to see you soon!!
Authentic. Engaged. Knowledgable. Passionate. What's not to love about this exceptional 5 star gem? The true measure of the value of a local tour guide is the speed at which they move from "my guide for the day" to "my new friend showing me around her town"; Mickey rocketed to that high status in hour one of our full day together. New Orleans has no better ambassador.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi James! I am so happy you enjoyed this amazing city. I had a blast showing my New friends the ins and outs of New Orleans. Please let me know if you need anything while your in town! Until next time...... Michaela
Gavin JonesSOUTHPORT, MERSEYSIDE, United Kingdom
The places we visited were well away from any tourist areas and were obviously well chosen. All were busy with local people enjoying a variety of food. We would never have found them by ourselves and even if we had, we wouldn't have gone inside. Michaela ordered our food for us making sure that we enjoyed a wide selection of what was on offer. Michaela was not only an excellent and professional guide she was also very good company. Our tour with her was one of the highlights of our entire USA trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gavin! Happy you enjoyed your tour of New Orleans and it’s rich history! Please let me know if you ever come back. Michaela
Mickie did an amazing job , we had a fantastic day. She is very knowledgeable and eas6 to chat with. She adjusted her tour and even brought us to one of her favorite restaurants for some great oysters Really had a fantastic day
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Kevin. Happy you enjoyed yesterday. Have a great time at the fest and hope to see you soon... until next time.... Michaela
