  • I feel so lucky to have been able to have Denise Augustine as a tour guide in New Orleans. I chose the Afro-Creole tour because this was a history I did not know much about but knew it was a key part of New Orleans history, culture, and people so I wanted to learn more about it. Denise answered all my questions, and shared an abundance of information and stories. The two hours flew by, and myself and my mom both enjoyed our time with her greatly. She is by far one of the best guides you can get in New Orleans, I highly recommend her tour. She gave us some great recommendations too - we had so much fun!
  • Legendary and Historic Creole Tours. St Louis Cemetery Number One, Historic Treme, Voodoo and Congo Square, Etc.
  • Denise is Amazing! Loved the tour and stories!!!
  • Denise Augustine speaks with such passion, I swear I did not want her to stop talking. I could listen to her talk allll day! My kiddo (11 years old) even said, Mom I wish she was my grandma and could tell me stories. She is very professional and compared to her peers, I was so glad we had her as a tour guide.
  • Thank you Denise for an amazing tour. You brought history alive with your passionate re telling of the details and stories. I will definitely recommend you and Our Secred Stories to my friends and I will be back again.
