Cassandra was a perfect guide for us in the French Quarter; her expertise of the history of the region combined with present day anecdotes made our tour very enjoyable. She is engaging and gauges her audience to provide the tour that is the best for fit for the group and is open to all questions. Highly recommend her for anyone visiting New Orleans.

Excellent tour - especially for someone like me who is a first time visitor. But the real value of taking this tour with Cassandra is learning the history of a number of different aspects of the city - it's ethic/national history, role in international trade, how ears elsewhere had an impact on the first try y, and it's culinary history, architectural history andfor good measure some fun "factoids" about Flora and Fauna. It was a great tour for others in my group who had been to New Orleans often?

Cassandra is awesome! Great energy but not over the top, easy going attitude and felt like you were being taken around by a knowledgeable friend. She knew the city, the history and had great suggestions for food, music and shopping. We really enjoyed our tour, it was a great start to our trip.

Cassandra took my wife, a first-time visitor, on a 5-hour walking tour (using her car just to get to a few places they visited). She would have rated Cassandra SIX STARS if she could have! Incredibly friendly, accessible, and very knowledgeable about history and details of every place they visited, Cassandra was prepared and entire tour was well thought out and efficiently executed. Cassandra also provided a wealth of local knowledge and left my wife a very happy & satisfied customer. Highly recommend!

Cassandra is a really good tour guide. She took the time to find out a whole bunch of stuff about us before we even started walking. she also, like, took the time to like explain what she was going to show us and a bunch of information about the things to look out for. Her knowledge of the history of New Orleans is like first class. It was one of the really memorable tours I have done and was certainly a highlight of my visit to New Orleans. I can thoroughly recommend her.

I have taken many tours with Tours by Locals all over the world. Cassandra is among the best. She drove us to all the highlights of New Orleans, while telling us the history and background of everyplace she showed us. The five hour tour seemed to fly by. I highly recommend Cassandra to anyone. We were first time visitors to NOLA, and we felt like we learned a great deal about it.

We had a great tour with Cassendra. A 5 star rating. She tailored the tour to our specific requests to see places from our childhood. She was very well prepared. Cassandra is very knowledgeable on the history of the city, the impact of Katrina, and details on the recovery. Her use of maps to explain the different areas was very informative. Cassandra was engaging, detailed, and an excellent communicator. We definitely recommend ToursByLocals.

Our family had the most enjoyable and educational day touring New Orleans with Cassandra. Her enthusiasm and joy was contagious as she showed us the sights from the French Quarter to the Garden District and beyond. Her knowledge was extensive and we loved hearing the stories about the history of the city and the residents. We are truly more knowledgeable as a result of what we learned. Getting to see the sights with someone who could lend such great background information was wonderful!

Cassandra did an outstanding job as our tour guide through the French Quarter. Her selected route through the French Quarter was excellent, and it provided an opportunity for us to learn a great deal from her knowledgeable commentary about the unique history and cultural integration for which the French Quarter is famous. The tour was a great experience ... our thanks to Cassandra for her gracious and informative guidance!

Cassandra was a great driver and tour guide for our group. While we had been to New Orleans before, we had never taken the time to learn about the city. She gave us a brief, fascinating history lesson and a tour through the highlights of town, garden district, warehouse district and french quarter....exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend her 3 hour driving tour to understand the flavor of New Orleans and how it got where it is today!

Cassandra was a wonderful tour guide. She was informative and entertaining with vast knowledge of New Orleans history and culture. She made adjustments to our tour because it was an extremely rainy day. My 16 year old daughter and I very much enjoyed learning about the city from Cassandra.

Tour: New Orleans- A Night Out!, New Orleans, Louisiana, United States

I had wanted an evening tour of New Orleans and it seemed that none of the ToursbyLocals guides offered such a tour. I was looking for a male guide because I was a bit concerned about being out at night on a tour. However, no male guides offered a Night Out in New Orleans. Enter Cassandra!! She was terrific! What a way to end our visit to New Orleans!! It seems that Cassandra knew all the performers, and therefore, my daughter and I were treated to an array of masterful musicians and vocalists. FABULOUS!

Cassandra was the perfect guide for our group of 12 and focused on our interests and questions. It was our first time in New Orleans so she started with a good overview of the city, geographics and the impact of Katrina in our hotel lobby. She provided meaningful comments, history and cultural aspects of the area. We had specific foodie interests so she definitely helped with guiding us and explaining foods, cuisine and restaurants. Hire her and you'll have a great time! We'll look her up next time.

Cassandra was an excellent guide. She is very knowledgeable about New Orleans history and very personable as well. She answered all of our questions with informative explanations. When I mentioned I was interested in art she made sure to take us to an area with interesting galleries and pointed out her favorites. One of the highlights of our trip!

Cassandra's walking tour of the French Quarter was excellent. Our only regret was that we hadn't booked a longer time with her! She gave a great overview of the history of New Orleans, and included both the traditional sites and some that were off the beaten track. My teenagers loved her. Highly recommend.
