My husband and I took a empty nester trip! Awesome tour! Thank you to Gina our tour guide. To read my blog about this tour click on the following link http://wp.me/p1F7tq-1L
I was in New Orleans for a business trip and me and my associates decided to take a tour. We went on the Ghost Town tour with our fantastic hostess Gina. Gina was very knowledgeable and taught us so many things we had never known about New Orleans. It was a very pleasurable experience that I would definitely do again.
The clerk was very helpful she steared me to a cigar that was well worth the stop. Good job every one should see her whatever your preference.
My husband and I were in New Orleans for Mardi Gras last week and met another couple in our hotel who had nothing but good things to say about Bloody Mary's Tours. I called her the day before we left and she was able to fit us into a cememery tour later that day. Her tour was spectacular! My husband was not as interested in the story of New Orlean's dead as I was, but once the two hour tour was over he was a convert! Mary took us to several cemetarys and at one point I was overcome with the power of where we were. She was everything and more than what we were both expecting.
Original art work on souvenir t-shirts. He is friendly and has the best shirts in the French Market.
This is an oasis in the dessert. A few years ago, I came inside from the noisy, busy streets to sit and listen to classical music and meditate on the beautiful painting of the ocean which hangs on the wall. Thank you so much for being there for me when I needed it the most.
If you're planning a children's party, give NOLA Amusements a call. They have an awesome selection of rides and the kids will have a blast! Prompt, professional, and safe. And, their prices were good too!
Horrendous service would be an understatement for describing this gallery. I had a poster signed by the artist at this gallery for French Quarter Fest and walked it over two feet to the manager to have them frame it. OVER 4 MONTHS LATER, the poster still was not framed. We called and complained several times and would never get a call back. We would always follow up and get told it would be ready in a couple of weeks. Finally, when they said it was ready, it had the wrong color matting and was not personalized like we had originally left it, but did have the same number on the print. Basically, they lost my poster which had the personalized message from the artist. Very shady activity going on at this gallery. I would not recommend buying anything here as the authenticity of items cannot be trusted.
My husband and I purchased a painting from Caliche &Pao Gallery on August 11,2012. We loved the painting, but wanted a street sign added to the street lamp. The street sign was to say,"Royal St.", (the street on which the gallery is located) and hanging from the street lamp. We were told by Ben it would be no problem to add this request, but it would take at least three weeks to process and would be mailed to us. The invoice also states this information. This was a birthday present to me from my husband as we were in New Orleans with our son & daughter in-law for my big celebration. You can imagine my surprise when we received it 2 weeks later without anything changed. I called Ben immediately to let him know what happened. He had to call me back as he didn't know just what to do. At first he told me to mail it back but when I told him I wasn't paying $100.00 to send it back (that's what we were charged for the shipping & insurance from the gallery) he had to call me back again. He then arranged for federal express to pick up. We re-packaged the painting in the same package it was received in.On September 20th we received the painting back. It looks less than acceptable. We can hardly read the street name, St. was not put on the sign after Royal, and the sign is hanging in mid air not from the street lamp. To me this has ruined the value of the picture. You might ask why I waited so long to say anything, because I have been so angry and disappointed I didn't know what to do. After the original return I sent an e-mail to Ben stating all the mistakes that had been made and that if we weren't throughly satisfied it would to returned for credit. His answer to that e-mail was they do not give returns or credits.
Upon returning home from a trip to New Orleans the first thing I am doing is writing a review for our tour with Bloody Mary. The five of us had a wonderful day as she guided us through the highlights of her beautiful city. We left feeling she must know just about everything New Orleans and she would answer our question before we even had a chance to ask them. It was refreshing to have a tour guide present such an abundance of information in a natural comfortable way. As though she was just chatting with friends rather than teaching a class (although she could teach a class on the subject)! I think we just scratched the surface on the things New Orleans has to offer but Bloody Mary taught us a lot and left us all eager to return. The tour was fascinating, fun and educational and making Voo Doo dolls at the end was a blast. Absolutely a MUST DO in New Orleans – call Bloody Mary to show you around.
