Carla is passionate about her city. She gives you the history of before and after Katrina; showed us the neighborhoods that are there now and told us about the ones that were destroyed. We would not have known this city without her insight. So glad we happened to meet her.

Our tour guide was super nice and knows the area well. She tools us around to places we may not have seen if we had gone around on our own. If you get the chance take this tour it is informative and fun.
