Tyler was very knowledgeable about the city. He shared not only history and facts but also his personal stories which added to the flavor to the tour. He seems to be heavily immersed in some of the Who’s Who in NOLA which lended an added layer of credibility and insight into the wonderful culture of the city. He was full of humor, fun facts, and historical explanations for what has made NOLA what it is.
