Would have liked to see more of the cemetery. The guide was very informative on the history of the French Quarter and the cemetery. He ran out of time, the tour should be longer than the 2 hr window. Maybe start off with a bit of history and then start on the walking tour. At times he was competing with other group and crowd noises in his narrative in that we would be standing on the street. All in all it was a good time. .

Mike was a great guide and provided us with plenty of interesting information. This is a great tour and we were lucky to be the only people on it. I believe they tend to run small numbers anyway. Would highly recommend this company
