We had the pleasure of being on both tours with Raffel. He was so knowledgeable about the city and so inviting to ask all the questions we may have. He really gave us the best experience on our trip and we can't wait to come back.

I ended up being the only person that showed for my tour so I got it solo and I found it fascinating the level of local insight my guide had. We talked about the cemeteries of course but then we went into the local “politics” and changes about the city from the Yellow Fever outbreaks until Katrina and Ida. I would not have been able to understand the city and neighborhoods we went through on my own without the insights of my guide Raf. This was well worth the money and time.
