Meet our Guides - Meet George
George has been a lifelong resident of New Orleans, with exception of a 30-year career in the United States Air Force.
He attended John McDonough High School, received a BS from LSU and a MA from Webster College.
Because of George’s love of telling stories about his favorite city, he became a tour guide. He joined the Gray Line team in 1993.
Ever since, he has enjoyed traveling vicariously with the visitors who join his tours. In addition, he enjoys
learning more about his city to share with the visitors he has welcomed for the last 27 years!
Charlie was born in the Irish Channel of New Orleans, with incredible history all around him. He graduated with a degree in History at Southeastern Louisiana University.
He is descended from French and German immigrants with an American influence as well. The French side of his family arrived in New Orleans in 1740, the German side in 1840, and the American side in 1850. Family history tells the real story of New Orleans culture and he has so many sides to draw from naturally.
Charlie enjoys meeting all types of people and sharing the stories he has been told about South Louisiana and New Orleans. That was his inspiration to study at Delgado College and Friends of the Cabildo to become a tour guide in 2012.
He joined Gray Line New Orleans in 2014 and has been sharing his wealth of knowledge with visitors to New Orleans ever since. Join him for the stories of New Orleans!
