A Tour Of The Town With Irma Thomas

New Orleans news from Royal Carriages Tours

Posted by Kimmie Carlos on October 16, 2019

This week, Royal Carriages was featured on "Another Vieux: Singing In the French Quarter With Irma Thomas" featuring Sheba Turk on WWL TV. 

It was a total joy having such a legend on a carriage ride with us, and we have to say that we learned a lot too!

Singing along and having a grand time, the weather was gorgeous and absolutely perfect for a New Orleans French Quarter Tour. We definitely had to pinch ourselves to make sure that such an illustrious day was real! But that's what it's like to live and breath New Orleans, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Big thanks to Sheba Turk, WWL TV, and the legend herself, Ms. Irma Thomas for choosing Royal Carriages for this wonderful excursion.

We had a private carriage ride with Jason and Professor LongHair. It was absolutely worth it. We went on a walking tour the night before, and there were obnoxious folks on it that had to be the center of attention that marred the tour. This is exactly why I booked a private carriage ride for an hour. I wanted to hear some history of the city in an environment that I could ask questions and was tailored to my interests. I'm a history buff, which is why I was being persnickety. Jason was great. He had jokes for my husband and entertained him while educating me, which was the perfect combination. He also explained how the Professor LongHair is treated in the off hours and how he (the mule) gets months long sabbaticals every year. It was a wonderful experience and I'd definitely do it again in a heartbeat.
