 Great tour, excellent guide!

As someone looking to move to Baton Rouge, John was able to give my mother and I a history lesson while showing us interesting and important sites. We wish that we had longer to spend listening to him, as he is clearly very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about sharing Louisiana history!
