    Brian, our tour guide, had a fantastic knowledge of the area history and bars. His love for New Orleans and connection with each bar and restaurant we visited was apparent, and we appreciated his respect for operations of each location as we (a 15 person group) made our way to each destination. While we drank at every location, it was very optional, and this would be an amazing tour even without the delicious beverages. We plan on attending the tour again when we are in town in the hopes of visiting other locations!

    Sean was a fantastic guide! We went to small, uncrowded bars off the normal beaten path in the French Quarter. His knowledge of the Quarter and the cocktails created there was fantastic!! We had a great time!
