"Naif was outstanding! Incredible knowledge, super fun, and very engaging. The food, the history behind the food, the history behind the restaurants, and the general information and history of New Orleans was over-the-top interesting! If you can only do one tour while in New Orleans, make it this one and make sure Naif is your guide. You're safe with Naif! (Take the tour and you'll get the hidden meaning behind this comment!)"
