Travelled from the UK and as part of the cruise we stopped in New Orleans during Mardi Gras. We had an amazing tour of the city with the brilliant Michaela, her knowledge of the city was invaluable. As we visited the city during Mardi Gras it made it extra special, Michaela took us all over the city including the French Quarter all dressed in the Mardi Gras colours and some amazing houses in the Garden Quarter so if your heading to New Orleans I would definitely recommend Tours By Locals and Michaela.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the kind words. I would have to agree that New Orleans is so special during Mardi Gras! I hope to see you back here!! Until next time... Michaela

We were a group of 6 seniors on a private tour with Michaela R. in New Orleans on February 17. She is terrific! Michaela is very knowledgeable and flexible. She told us about the history of the city and catered the tour to our interest. I have mobility problems and she was so helpful and made this tour a truly enjoyable experience for us. I highly recommend her if you are thinking of doing a tour in New Orleans.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Mr Lee, I am so happy you enjoyed your time with me. Thank you so much for the kind words . i hope to see you back in NOLA. Michaela

Michaela is a great tour guide, incredibly knowledgeable and deeply enjoys the city of New Orleans. Definitely a local as we ran into several people who knew her as we walked around. She put together a great tour for us that hit all the areas we wanted to see. She had a very comfortable vehicle and took us to places we wouldn't have thought to go. Also, she was very helpful with suggestions for things to do with the rest of our time in the city. Highly recommend Michaela as a tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Avery! I hope you and you son are doing well. Thank you for such kind words about the time we spent together. I hope to see you back In NOLA soon. Until next time.... Michaela

Michaela provided a wonderful day--driving us to Evergreen, a beautiful Creole plantation, while along the way imparting valuable information on New Orleans districts, culture, and history. After the plantation, she took us to her great neighborhood po-boy restaurant and then walked us along streets of the Garden District showing us various house architectures and celebrity homes. Her knowledge of and passion for New Orleans is eminently evident, and her vibrant personality adds to the fun experience!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dara, Thank you so much for a nice review. You guys made it easy and fun showing you my city. I hope you make it back soon. Please keep in touch. Until next time... Michaela

Michaela was EXCELLENT in every way. We were a mobility restricted trio of old ladies and she went above and beyond for us in many ways. She conducted a wonderful personalized tour of NOLA. It's obvious she loves her city and her perspective about raising her kids in the French Quarter, living through Katrina, and valuing a diverse culture is one we couldn't have gotten any other way. We couldn't have asked for more! We highly recommend her to anyone who wants to leave with a real FEEL for NOLA!

Michaela is upbeat and fun, and our day with her was wonderful! We thought the tour length and depth were perfect, giving us context for understanding instead of just raddling off many dates. She obviously loves her city and loves sharing her deep knowledge of it, including the nuances that only a true local understands, with her guests. We had been to New Orleans before, but getting her insider perspective and seeing so much more of the city gave us a much better appreciation of this fascinating place

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a wonderful time showing off New Orleans. Ever time I give a tour to travelers who are interested in this great city, makes me love New Orleans even more. So thank you !! I hope to see you soon!!

Michaela was so good that she even made the weather perfect. We were able to add, at the last minute, another couple (that we met on a cruise) to join us. No problem for her -at least she made it seem like no problem even though I expect it was. Cannot imagine a better guide from an informational or personal point of view.

We couldn't have asked for a more perfect tour of New Orleans. Michaela had memorized my LENGTHY list of things we were interested in and made sure she hit on each one. She is so much FUN! Knows all the history, architecture, food! I can't say it enough - if you're going to be in NOLA find her and book a tour with her. She is a NATIVE - not a transplant. We knew we wanted someone familiar with the area but after being in NOLA it feels even more important to have someone that is truly from there.

Michaela was fantastic! She is spunky, knowledgeable, and wonderfully gracious. We couldn't imagine there being a better native to show us her city. In addition to a great tour, she offered many off the beaten path dining and entertainment suggestions throughout our stay. Not only did we love her, but we loved that she had an extremely comfortable Mercedes to drive us around when walking in the heat became overwhelming. She was the perfect match for me and my husband, the Historian.

We had a wonderful time with Michaela touring the Garden District and Cemetery. My husband and I had been to town before and knew some history but we had our 21 year old daughter with us and she was a first time visitor. When Michaela heard this, she quickly adjusted the tour to include a brief overview of the French Quarter to accommodate a first time visitor. She had great knowledge and stories all with a fun and energetic personality. I would love to spend the day with her again sometime!

Michaela was THE BEST guide I have ever had. She knew her New Orleans so well and could project her love and knowledge of it with great enthusiasm. We learned so much and it all came alive as she added some tidbits from the years she has lived there. She took us to places she thought we would enjoy after finding out what we had seen and wanted to see. She waited while we jumped out to peruse the Market and Jackson Square a few minutes and even get a wine glass to take home from Pat O'Bien's.
