Peak was excellent!! Very knowledgeable, and engaging with the kids and adults alike. Our kids learned so much, and it was a highlight of our stay.

The highlight! Thank you so much for these great words about your Kids’ Experience! We call it “kids’ experience” but really everyone has fun! We bring snacks and crafts for everyone and the kids are just delighted when grandpa makes a doll or mom eats alligator. Kids don’t realize they’re learning about New Orleans, but parents text us days after the tour to attest that they did! Peak is fun, creative, and genuine, and is a perfect guide for this tour. Please come learn and laugh with us again! Libby
Great kid friendly tour!

Thanks for this great review! The Kids’’ Experience is so much fun and Crissy is the perfect guide for it. She’s professional and silly, a teacher and a fun aunt. Who wouldn’t love learning about a city though stories, music, dancing, crafts, and snacks? Thanks for bringing the family to New Orleans and for touring with Lucky Bean Tours. See y’all next time! Libby
A must-do in NOLA!

This tour was the BEST part of our trip to New Orleans! My 12, 10, and 8 year old children had a blast …and so did I! Our guide took us around beautiful parts of the city, while covering important history in such an engaging way. The specially prepared snacks and crafts were perfection! We walked away with a love, appreciation, and knowledge of the Crescent City! Book now!

Thanks for your review of the New Orleans Kids ‘ Experience! We set out to create an all-ages experience that was fun but that the kids would remember and (with you at least) it seems we succeeded! I am so happy that there are parents and grandparents who want their kids to truly experience other cultures, and we are ready to walk, craft, and snack with you next time! Libby

Family Fun in New Orleans

We recently enjoyed a wonderful tour with Libby. She was outstanding at keeping our 9 year old son engaged on learning about the history of New Orleans. She made the experience fun and interesting! Snacks and activities were included during the tour and were COVID safe and interactive. Would highly recommend to families.

Thank you for this great review! Your family was a joy to walk with. Your little boy is sweet and curious and obviously his parents want him to experience, learn, and have fun. Thank you for letting me be the one to show you around the town where I used to be a kid and loved it. Please come again and bring more family! Libby
Fun family tour

Cristy was a great tour guide. She was knowledgeable about New Orleans and she was so patient with our family. She was great at adapting to the current environment and we all had a great time!

Crissy really was made for that tour - she is organized, friendly, smart, and fun! Plus, she is a teacher and mom in addition to being a tour guide. We are just starting to figure out how to give the Kids and Family Tour in the COVID world, and we appreciate all the families who entrust us to show them around. Please come and tour with us again - we are learning new stories and crafts! Libby

Fantastic, hands on tour of the French Quarter. Our guide, Chrissy, was so informative, had tons of props and tools to accent the experience and the kids loved her (ages 7, 5 & 2.5) Souvenirs, knowledge and memories to take home. Worth every penny

Lovely tour!

Libby was an excellent guide! She kept our boys, ages 7 and 11, entertained and interested for the whole tour. It included lots of little local snacks for them to try and they loved the toys and craft. It was the perfect tour for a family!
