"Civil War Cemetery Tour"

"One of the best tours ever. Nick was great. Highly recommend. He picked us up in a really comfy big SUV right on time. The tour is a combo of walking and riding, which was great since it was so hot. He is very energetic and knowledgeable and clearly excited about the topic and the city."

"Another outstanding tour"

"We took the Metairie Cemetery Tour, and Nic's knowledge and passion in this area was excellent. He has a gift for bringing history alive. He digs deep into the people & stories, putting them within the context of Civil War time local and geopolitical happenings. Hands down the best tours in New Orleans!"
