Best Way to See New Orleans

The private tour of New Orleans with Michaela is an absolute must-do. She is a 4th generation New Orleanian and is the real deal. She lives and breathes the city. She seemed to know everyone on the street which made the random historical and cultural tangents all the more interesting. She gives an in-depth background to NO but also gives you her own perspective about the many changes that have taken place there.

Girls Trip to NOLA

I've been to New Orleans before but never saw it like this! Michaela showed us the French, Spanish and English architecture around uptown. The garden district homes are grand and amazing! But my favorite was the cute, little, colorful shotguns in the Irish Channel. She was a great guide! I will definitely try another private tour with her again next time I visit New Orleans.

Fantastic New Orleans Experience!

Michaela was not only an excellent and professional guide she was incredibly accommodating with all of the requests we made. She was wonderful company and extremely knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans. Our private tour with her was one of the highlights of our entire USA trip.

Great Five Hour Tour

She [Michaela] took us all around the various districts of New Orleans highlighting its history from the early days to the present. She also was very flexible making sure we saw the things we wanted to while working around an on-again, off-again rain. We stopped at a restaurant for a quick lunch and got a true flavor of New Orleans' po-boys.

Only Way to Tour New Orleans

I wish I could rate this more than 5 Star! Michaela was fantastic, 3rd generation from New Orleans, it was so informative and absolutely a lot of fun. We have been to NOLA many times but never saw all the wonderful parks, houses, churches, and battleground before. Her knowledge of history and architecture was amazing. We will be returning again next year and will definitely plan another day with Michaela maybe even two.

The Best Private Tour Has Arrive in New Orleans

Michaela has infectious talent for meeting new people and guiding your tour of New Orleans! Needless to say, she was THE BEST GUIDE we have ever had. She knew beautiful New Orleans spot-on and projected her love and depth of knowledge with great enthusiasm. We learned A TON, and it all came alive as she added brillant tidbits from the years she has lived there. She took us to the places she thought we would enjoy, and those spots were not your typical "tourist places."

New Orleans culture is like no other. We love to live and live to love. My name is Michaela and I was born and raised in the city of New Orleans. I am an expert on the influences of New Orleans architecture,  food, culture, and history.

It would be my pleasure to show you around “My  New Orleans” on a private driving tour so that you may experience the wonderful sights and sounds of the city.  We will travel from Uptown to the Lower Nine, from the French quarter to the Garden District… Let the good times roll!
