Linda was so informative and nice! We were a few minutes late but she didn’t mind, and she shared so much history of the area. Great educational experience.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2021
Thanks for the great review! We are so happy to have Linda. She is funny and, as you noted, very nice PLUS she knows a lot about New Orleans! Perfect combo! Sometimes guests are late - your phone doesn't always give accurate travel times - so we try to arrange it so that we can get started on time but remain at the start spot for the latecomers. I am glad your New Orleans experience - at least the two hours you gave to us - was enjoyable, and I hope you come again! Libby

So many interesting stories!!!! Libby is the best!!! She is a fantastic story teller. I would recommend this walking tour to everyone!!!!

Thank you so much for this excellent review and rating! I am so happy that you enjoyed my stories about New Orleans, because I love telling them! Come walk with me again - if there is a silver lining to the loss of business during the pandemic (besides that by not touring we were safer), it is the extra time for reading, researching, and learning. Thank you for touring and helping us out with a review. Libby

Yvonne- great guide

Thank you, Yvonne for an informative and fun 2-hr tour! Great how you did “full circle” in telling the history of the French Quarter.
icon Response from Host , Mar 2021
Thank you for this wonderful review of your French Quarter tour with Yvonne. She knows and loves the French Quarter, and has crafted an excellent tour. You are correct in your observation that she leads her guests to a full appreciation of New Orleans' unique history through her unique presentation, including an energetic "background history" before she leads you to all the right locations for appreciating the 300 year old neighborhood. Please come again! Libby

That's when you know you've done it right - when they want to come back. I am so happy that you enjoyed our walk through the French Quarter, and I really appreciate you going the extra step of writing a review that will bring me more guests and more opportunities to talk about my beloved city. See y'all next time! Libby

Tour was the best

Libby was amazing! Very personal tour due to Covid protocols and she recounted personal stories (being a 10 generation New Orleans resident) as well as giving some great local food tips. The history tour was really enlightening amd Libby brought all to life with knowledge, excitement and humor. We will be back with family and friends.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2021
Oh, good! I am looking forward to walking through the crazy Quarter with you again. I promise it will not be a repeat of the tour you already had, because no two tours are alike! I have the stories and the love of our food and I really love being able to explain our culture. Thanks for this review, and I will see you when I see you! Libby

Excellent! Worth every penny! Full of interesting tidbits of a very complex Heritage in New Orleans. Tour guide Peak was great!
icon Response from Host , Jan 2021
Thank you so much for this great review of your French Quarter tour! Peak is a wonderful guide because the complexity of our history and culture intrigues her. Therefore, she is always reading, learning, and thinking about how all the different elements of our existence - climate, race, faith, economy - come together to make us the fascinating place that we are. Thanks for choosing Lucky Bean to show you New Orleans, and please come see us again! Libby

Libby knew everything there was to know about New Orleans history (and an insider’s tips for great food in the area). She not only recounted history but added her personal accounts of recent New Orleans events and answered every question we had. We will be back with friends and family.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2021
Thanks! I am looking forward to touring with you again. Hopefully, there will be lots of restaurants reopened and a few new ones, too. I hate to contradict a guest, but I do not actually know everything there is to know about New Orleans - but I am trying! Next time, I will know a few more things and I can't wait to tell you! I am so grateful to have the opportunity to tell these stories in such a fantastic place as my job. Thanks for taking the time to help my little company with this lovely review. See y'all next time!

I had Libby as my tour guide and she did a great job personalizing the tour, by seeing what peaked my interest. Libby gave me insights of how to maximize my stay in New Orleans. She told me history, gave me knowledge of all the best foods spots, and all the best parts of the city
icon Response from Host , Jan 2021
Thank you thank you thank you for this great review. We at Lucky Bean have always tried to personalize every tour to the interests of our guests, but the pandemic-enforced super small groups have given us more training than we ever thought we would have! You just can't give a generic tour when you only have two guests. We love the fact that every tour is different, and we look forward to showing you what we've got ( and what is new) next time you make it to New Orleans. Libby

Stories behind French quarter
priyanka_k
, Dec 2020
Libby has great story telling skills with numerous nuggets of information about every smallest corner of the French quarter . Our kids learned a lot. We enjoyed the most the Napoleon house and the story behind it.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2020
Thanks! I just realized that almost no one ever tells me what their favorite story was - what a great touch in a great review! I really love that story too - drunk rich guys, an international plot, boats, a deposed emperor, and a pirate - plus a great restaurant. What's not to love? I am so pleased that you enjoyed your tour as much as I enjoyed my time with you. Please come see me again! Libby
