Disappointed

Our guide was ok but not that engaging. At two of our stops we had to share the cocktail. For the price of this experience I was not impressed and I don’t feel it met the standards of other urban Adventures tours I have taken.

My friend and I had the great pleasure of touring with Rene for our very intimate and very informative Cocktail Tour of the French Quarter. Rene was absolutely amazing. He led us through a journey of New Orleans history and the history of cocktail making in this great city. Along the way we sampled some of the best cocktails New Orleans has to offer. This tour was the highlight of my first trip to New Orleans. The quality and ability of your tour guide makes all the difference in the world on whether you get a great experience or not and Rene is the best. I highly recommend the History and Cocktails Small-Group Tour.

What a fun day! Sophie is awesome and shared her own special haunts as well as stories and the history of each place. Super entertaining and really enjoyed meeting the other folks on our tour. This was SO worth it.
