Recently we were fortunate enough to have a real treat on one of our tours; a gentleman by the name of Tom, who works at a Northeastern university, has been bringing groups of students to New Orleans to help with the rebuilding efforts periodically over the past six years. Tom joined us on our Post-Katrina Tour and really helped make the tour special by providing some insight from someone who has helped build the homes in Musicians Village, one of the areas showcased on the tour. But most of all, it is so wonderful and gratifying for us to see the passion and sincerity of all the people who have helped–and are continuing to help–rebuild and restore this fantastic city. In Tom's own words, which you can view on Trip Advisor:
Opening Up a New Perspective: I've visited NOLA over 12 times since Katrina hit.
Over these past 6 years we have brought down over 3000 college volunteers from the campuses of New England.
It was helpful to get a tour of the entire New Orleans area since my perspective has been working in the Ninth Ward. Joe did a great job of giving us an expansive picture of the damage done and was a very friendly ambassador of New Orleans.
Thank you so much, Tom–and thank you to everyone who has been a part of our recovery. We love you all!
