Brian did a great job recounting New Orleans early history and the stories of burials in the Crescent City. He was engaging and entertaining. Although it was quite hot out, he stopped frequently in shaded spots to give his informative talks. About half way into the walking tour, we stopped for a break in air-conditioned visitors center (drinks and bathrooms). The walking is level, but the paving in New Orleans is not always "flat". One had to be careful when walking. Would recommend Brian!
Randy did an amazing job with the tour. He did a great job talking about the history of New Orleans.
