Katrina grew up in Connecticut with a love of history and culture. In 2004, she escaped New England’s snowy winters, and headed to the warm subtropical climate of New Orleans.
Katrina graduated Tulane University with a BA in Social Sciences and a minor in Louisiana Studies. Courses including Louisiana History, Free People of Color, Jazz, Storyville, Louisiana Archaeology, and Historic Preservation created a love of New Orleans’ architectural treasures – all of which she loves to share enthusiastically with her guests!

Grey Sweeney is a native of Virginia Beach, Virginia. She first came to New Orleans in 1994 to speak at a legal convention, and she fell in love with the city’s history and architecture.

Grey has degrees in English, Political Science, and History from Longwood University, and a law degree from the University of Richmond. She is the Lead Instructor for the Walking Tour Guide Class for the Friends of the Cabildo/Louisiana State Museum, where she trains guides to research, write, and give walking tours of the French Quarter.

Her hobbies include architecture photography, writing, and cooking.
Brian has dabbled in web design for a few decades and likes to wear costumes, disguises, and funny hats. You can catch him every year starring as band leader Chef Boom in the Krewe De Seuss Mardi Gras parade.
With his free time Brian also enjoys playing and occasionally making video games (…mostly playing). And back in 2007 he was in a local New Orleans band that was casually referred to as Sophomoric. While Brian may NOT be leading any of our tours (sorry ladies), he is more than capable of supporting his lovely wife Katrina! Just look at this beautiful site you’re on right now!
