Even if you’ve lived in New Orleans your whole life and you know everything about the place, there’s a good chance there’s one thing you don’t know. And that is, what it’s like to be a tourist.
Some tourists just want to know what it’s like to be you. For those people, looking for a unique local’s perspective to their New Orleans experience, there’s a specialized travel agency called Joieful.
The founder and CEO of Joieful, Aaron Dirks, joins Peter Ricchiuti on this edition of Out to Lunch.
Gordon Stevens knows more about tourists than almost anybody in the crescent city. Gordon is President, CEO and co-owner of the New Orleans Steamboat Company.
