Niji Rinaldi's passions include the arts, the environment, history and culture. Originally from Puerto Rico, Niji moved to New Orleans in the early eighties to attend college. Niji fell in love with New Orleans immediately after she began to notice its similarities to her home town- the architecture, food, music, carnival, festivals, the general attitude and way of being. Niji is an accomplished photographer specializing in New Orleans culture.
Following two college degrees and various certificates, Niji has come full circle. She became a licensed New Orleans tour guide five years ago, today continues to explore New Orleans history, and loves to share her knowledge with people. Niji is bilingual and can give tours in English and Spanish.
