    We had a morning tour of the French Quarter with Charles. The tour was interesting, well-paced and informative. Charles was an excellent tour-guide, knowledgeable and entertaining thoughout. Highly recommended.

  • Trina England

    HUGE thank you to Charlie for his informative, lighthearted, and engaging guide through St. Louis Cemetery #1. His sense of humor is right up my alley but he gets down to business when it comes to the facts. I could see his passion for the city as well as speaking to the group! Thank you for making this so enjoyable, Charlie.

  • Tonia G. Heng

    Very friendly, thorough and knowledgeable. He made the tour a lot of fun and we definitely left more educated than before we went in. 

  • Glenn

    Had the pleasure of a 1 on 1 tour with Mr Duffy on Friday afternoon. The tour took about 45 minutes. We left on time at noon and returned to the starting point at 12:45. He is very informative - explained the history of the French Quarter, the different architectural styles and what to look for when walking through the quarter. I wish the tour would have been a little longer - and covered the Mississippi River and how that helped form New Orleans, a litte more detail in Jackson Square. Overall, I would encourage visitors to seek out his tour.

    Just finished up a tour with Charles. He was an excellent source of information and also kept it funny and interesting. I would highly recommend him as a tour guide. Great job!

  • Vanessa-Brendon

    Thanks for a great tour Charles.  Who thought a cemetery tour could be so informative and fun! 

  • Meagan

    This was the most enjoyable tour I've ever been on! Duffy was so entertaining and incorporated details and tidbits of information that were relevant to our group. I would highly recommend taking a tour with him!

    Charles was absolutely top notch in his guided tour of St Louis #1 cemetery. Could not recommend anyone better to walk you through this or other NOLA/French Quarter sites and scenes. Unfortunately we ran out of time before engaging his services for another tour, but wish we'd been able to participate in his insightful, knowledgeable tours of this beautiful area of the city. You won't be disappointed! Do yourself a favor and look up this gentleman for any tour in FQ!!

    Had a great time, best tour ever. I have been to the New Orleans French Quarter five times now and can’t wait to go back. On our last visit I was fortunate enough to Meet Charles at a local pub and struck up a conversation. We had just finished a walking tour the night before that left much to be desired so I inquired if he would give us a tour of the local cemetery. I have done past Cemetery tours but this was by far the best. Both fun and educational, far more information and stories then any of the other tours. I then asked for a tour of the Garden District that I was equally pleased with. I would recommend him anytime and if you get the opportunity join him for a beer. I learned more about New Orleans over that one beer then the last four visits.

    Charles is a wealth of information combined with witty commentary! Definitely worth checking him out for a tour!
  • Constance
    I have been on two different walking tours with Charles Duffy and each of them were fascinating; funny and entertaining. He is a very good storyteller and uses his voice and body to really get you into the characters of who he is talking about. He answered all of the groups many questions. He made us feel the weight of the history he was talking about and still be entertained not lectured to.
