StreetcarFrequently asked Questions

The following pertain to tours led under the name Native Son, and do not apply to tours I run for other companies.

Cancellations

Refunds are issued only for cancellations made at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled tour departure time. Group cancellations must be made at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled departure time.

Children

Children under 6 are not permitted. Children’s fares apply to ages 6 through 12 years of age unless otherwise specified. While I do love having younger visitors join us, I do require they attend the tour with an adult.

Clothing

The streets and sidewalks of New Orleans are often cobblestone, or old and uneven, so please wear comfortable shoes. Caps/hats, umbrellas for shade, bottled water and sunscreen are also good ideas when out in the subtropical summer.

Cover Charges 

Attractions admissions, food, beverage and gratuities are not included unless otherwise noted.

Do you make up all the ghost stories?

I’ll tell you as much as we have been able to historically document and draw a firm line between that and the chilling campfire tales. The stories I tell are all well entrenched in local folklore.

Furry Children

I love dogs, but unfortunately not all guests do. I respectfully ask guests not to bring dogs on the public tours. I do offer private tours and many of these can accommodate dogs.

Gratuities

Gratuities are not included in the tour price and are hugely appreciated when I meet or exceed your expectations.

Length of Tours

Each standard excursion is approximately 1 1/2 to 2 hours. We ask that you try to arrive about 10 minutes prior to tour time to allow for check in. Customized Adventures can be up to a full (8 hour) day in length.

Photography

Pictures? Most certainly! New Orleans is one of the most photogenic cities in the world, pictures are a must! As a matter of fact just ask me and I’ll take them for you so that everyone in your party can be in the photo. I do ask, as a courtesy, that you do not shoot video.

Responsibility Clause

I act as agent for any attractions included in these tours and shall not be held liable or responsible for any inconvenience, loss, injury, or damage which may result from the acts or omissions of any company or person operating such attractions.

Venues

Sometimes the venues planned for a Custom Adventure such as museums or clubs may vary based on availability. I try to avoid these circumstances, but when they occur another equal venue is always selected.

Weather

My tours run rain or shine. I encourage all guests to take a look at the weather forecast and plan accordingly. Keep in mind that an umbrella is often a good idea even when no rain threatens, nothing like being able to take your shade along with you!

What if someone in the group is acting out?

I reserve the right to remove any person or persons from all or part of the trip if I feel they are behaving in an unacceptable manner. I will not be responsible for repatriation or any costs incurred, and no refund will be given as the result of being removed from the trip or part thereof.

“Everyone in this good city enjoys the full right to pursue his own inclinations in all reasonable and, unreasonable ways.” The Daily Picayune, New Orleans, March 5, 1851
