Tour Guide was very knowledgeable but didn't seem to like people from Wisconsin very much. He also didn't seem to like tourist very much. I would still recommend the tour simply for the knowledge he portrayed.

Randy was interesting and quite knowledgeable about the Garden District and Cemetery tour information. We were a little disappointed that we could not go inside the cemetery, but that wasn’t his fault. He had a sense of humor and we enjoyed his tour.
