I have travelled in Europe, Asia, the North and the South America. Many professional tourist guides have enriched my travel experiences. But, this time, on my first trip to New Orleans, Libby really did an exceptionally brilliant job as a tour guide showing me around the fascinating Lafayette Cemetery, the elegant garden district, and the bright-hued, story-filled French quarter. She is so knowledgeable about the local history she could the author of a travel book! She took me to the former residences of Mark Twain, William Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Tennessee Williams, and,for my son’s sake, the houses Drake, Jay Z and Beyoncé made illustrious. She told the local stories with such charms and pride in New Orleans’ unique legacy! I feel so blessed to have had such an intelligent and warm guide who felt like a local friend at the end of the Garden District tour that I decided to follow her other walking tour to the French Quarter the next day! Libby’s small group tour allowed me to experience New Orleans’s Southern hospitality in the best sense. My fond memories of New Orleans shall always be recalled with sincere appreciations to Libby of The Lucky Beans!
