About Henley's Private Driving Tours
Having been a tour licensed tour guide in the New Orleans area since 2012, and lived in the area all of my life, I decided that I wanted to start my own tour business and specialize in custom private driving tours. Since the majority of the visitors spend much of their time in the French Quarter, it is my passion the show my guests the rest of this beautiful city. I can show you more of the New Orleans area in 3 hours than you can see in 3 days on your own.
New Orleans is a unique and iconic city with not only a lot of history, but with many unique landmarks that are beautiful and have great stories about the present and the past. For example we also have some of the most beautiful live oak tress in the world here, that are not only amazing to see but have unique qualities as well, such as the size of their limbs, the age, the Spanish moss and the resurrection fern growing on them. You will also see several unique neighborhoods, many of which have been rebuilt since Katrina and others that have some of the most opulent mansions in the United States. We’ll also talk about why people from all over the world moved here in the 19th century and the diversity.
I will spend a minimum of 3 hours driving around New Orleans talking about many of these unique, iconic, and beautiful sites while telling your group why and how this area was built and what we do today 300 years later. The rich history, the beauty, the recent developments, the reason for our growth, the wealth, the cultures, the state of Louisiana, the Mississippi river’s part in our history, the Catholic church’s part in our history, the diversity, the civil war, the architecture, the many back stories, our iconic cemeteries and also a lot of humor and fun along the way.
I’ll talk about the; French Quarter/Bourbon Street, flood control/canals/pumping stations, Katrina, Treme, second line/funeral processions, Storyville, cemeteries, city park, Lake Pontchartrain, Katrina damaged neighborhoods, bayou St. John, festivals, Mardi Gras, Estates, Mansions, Garden District/University district, the Mississippi river and port, Cruise ships, river cruises, other venues to enjoy, and much more while including humor along the way. I am also experienced in Swamp tours and Plantation tours. I love to talk about our unique wetlands and fishing too. I can customize a tour to include whatever your group wants, including combination tours.
See why Henley’s Private Tours has so many five star ratings on Tripadvisor, Viator, and Yelp and is recommended by several of the largest hotels in our area. (My best marketing is what others say about me, not what I say about myself.)
