We signed up for the family tour of the French Quarter and were surprised to find that Crissy was going to be doing the tour for only our family. It was an amazing experience. She was so knowledgeable and friendly and my whole family enjoyed the craft that she had organized

Thanks for this excellent review of your Kids and Family tour with Crissy! We tell the stories of New Orleans on that very special tour through crafts and food, and we want everyone to enjoy New Orleans to the fullest, so when we have a guest with dietary restrictions, we are thankful that we have a long list of NOLA foods to please them. I hope your family come to New Orleans again, and we will be here with the snacks! Libby

My daughter and I met Chrissy and a family of three for our family tour of the French Quarter. We had a wonderful time. Chrissy brought the history of New Orleans and the French Quarter to life with illustrations, crafts, stories, and snacks. We loved the church dolls we made

You are our favorite family! You come back every year and we can't wait to see you again. You daughter is so sweet and loving and I am so glad I was able to meet her. Thank you for supporting this small business. Crissy is indeed a great guide, especially for the kids tour. She is a teacher, a mom, organized, and professional. But most of all, she loves the culture of New Orleans and loves sharing it with the families who go on her tours. The snacks, crafts, and music make the tour a great time for everyone. I hope y'all are dancing to Satchmo, waving your second line handkerchiefs, and planning your next trip to New Orleans! Libby

Crissy is so great at the kids tour! She is just fun and funny, and is a teacher and a mom to boot! I am so happy that your son loved the tour. He will always remember his time with you in New Orleans, and we are so honored to be a small part of a great vacation memory. The snacks and the crafts make New Orleans come alive for kids, and parents appreciate the chance to ask questions and get recommendations from a local. See y'all next time! Libby

Our tour included 4 adults and 2 young children. Everyone enjoyed making the church dolls, sampling the food, and the interactive nature of the historical tour of Jackson Square, the River Front, Cafe du Monde, and the French Market.

Thanks for reviewing the Kids and Family Tour with Crissy! It is such a fun way to learn about New Orleans and create great family memories. I am impressed that you took the time to book a tour that is specifically geared to the enjoyment of your children. I can tell that you are the type of parent that is giving their children a culturally rich, adventurous childhood (plus instilling a love of walking tours - thanks!). Please come when they are a little bigger for some new crafts and snacks! Libby
