HORRIBLE tour guide...
I picked this tour specifically vs going with Dr. Gumbo Tours because this one didn't include all the drinks like most of the other cocktail/drinking walking tours do. My mother doesn't drink so I didn't feel it would be worth the price of $60 plus to go with a tour that included a drink at every stop. With this specific cocktail tour you had the option to buy a drink at each stop and you received one drink complimentary before the tour starts.
Our tour guide was Joe and the other guy that was there at the beginning was Brian...First let me start out by saying we were originally a group of 6 and had one tour guide. They tell you to be at least 30 minutes early to the meeting location. Everyone was there 30 minutes prior except the tour guide, who got there exactly at the start time of the tour at 4pm. Around 4:15pm 5 young ladies decide they want to be included in the tour and go to the window to pay for their tickets. They took almost 45 minutes to pay and get situated while the remaining parties sat around and waited.
The tour guide complained the entire time that it was too busy to do this tour because of how busy the city was and that the company he works for shouldn't have allowed tours on this day. My second big problem with this guy was we were already an hour late leaving for our 2.5 hour walking tour and at one of our stops a few off these young ladies in the group decided they were hungry and wanted to grab some pizza. Tour guide said oh yeah sure go ahead we have plenty of time, so they left while myself, my mother and a few others just waited while they got their food. He took a smoke break and it was like no big deal at all. Third, he advised us after only two stops he had to let us go because he had to met up with another tour he was doing. We only went to three places and got no history of any of them, it was you can buy this or this drink and thats it. Lastly and the most funniest part, not only was this guy kinda of sloppy but his pants zipper was down, he smelled like smoke and he was just unprofessional overall.
I would NOT recommend this tour off course because of the experience we had. There were two guides working this evening and they were grumpy, unhappy and complaining the entire time. Better off paying a bit more and going with Dr. Gumbo Tours for the cocktail walking tour :)
