Oh my gosh. Daniel was our tour guide and it was really great. We had just arrived in town when we went on this tour. Daniel's knowledge of history and passion for the city really showed. We learned so much about the architecture, the historical local eccentrics, and more. I had been to New Orleans many times, but wanted my teens to become acquainted with the Quarter, too, so I signed up for this tour. My kids also gained familiarity with the layout of the Quarter. I would definitely recommend! Ask for Daniel Chick if you can. :

Excellent tour loaded with history, architecture, local flavor, and personal commentary from Carol, our wonderful guide. We learned a lot and enjoyed the experience.
Mary was a great guide and very informed. She knew so much about the history of New Orleans, how and why it was founded, and how it developed. We learned so much about people who played a significant role in the development of the French Quarter and the architecture. We would highly recommend this tour.

Our guide was excellent!!! She knew so much about the history, architecture and residents of the garden district. I would highly recommend this tour and the guide.
Beautiful and informative tour of the high class district of New Orleans! We learned a lot about architecture, as well as stories of select homeowners.
This tour was fantastic. I learned so much about the history of New Orleans and about architecture styles of the Garden District houses in just 3 hours. The guide, Robi, was very entertaining and informative. Thankfully it was slightly overcast on the day of our tour which kept the temperature down. Robi did give everyone a bottle of water and a fan at the beginning of tour and then another cold beverage at the end but if the sun had been out it would have been quite hot and you do walk for most of the tour. I would recommend this tour highly.
Our guide, Robi, was very knowledgeable and pretty funny too! We totally enjoyed the history and architecture of the Garden District. For anyone interested in the above I would highly recommend this tour.
There are so many beautiful homes it was great being on a tour with someone knowledgeable about architecture and ownership. The cemetery was also interesting and again, it was good being there with a guide.
Thank you Robi for this amazing day! We were so lucky with you, there was just 2 of us! Thank you for devoting special time not included in this tour to show the AHS house and Trent Reznor's house and many other things that with a big tour we would have not probably seen! Your knowledge of the architecture and love for the city made this tour absolutely beautiful and outstanding! I will be back to explore it more!
Most people are familiar with the French Quarter and its history. This tour educates you about a different part of New Orleans Garden District while also giving you the opportunity to see several beautiful and historic homes. Our guide Robi was well versed in New Orleans history and the architecture. I world recommend this trip to anyone.
This is a tour not to be missed! Our tour guide Robi was awesome! His knowledge of the history, homes and architecture was amazing! I loved every second of I!
Our tour guide was fantastic. She was so knowledgeable and made the tour most enjoyable.
A second visit inside a home would have been good, as we only went into one, but we learned a lot about the styles and types of architecture used in many buildings.
This tour was excellent! With a small group we were able to not only see the sights, but have conversations with the guide. We have been to New Orleans twice, but never really knew all the history outside the french quarter. We found it very interesting and now have a better understanding of how the architecture came about with the different style homes. We also found the tour of some of the levy system very informational. The tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable.
The architecture and history as well as local pop culture references made for an interesting and varied tour. Our guide, as a New Orleans native, was knowledgeable and the opportunity to see the Garden District and the Cemetery with that depth of knowledge as our guide was a great resource. Educational and entertaining. I recommend that you call ahead to make sure the procedure for check in is followed as we walked from our hotel on Royal to the ticket book by the Cafe du Monde and then over to the lighthouse check in where the van was waiting. The trains and trolleys have an impact on when the vans can get through that area so be as considerate as you can with an early arrival about 20 minutes before tour departure.
Great tour with all the information about culture, architecture, and all the little things that we didn't know about the great city of New Orleans. For those of you that are worried about making the tour there are only 2 sets of stairs that you need to climb but can opt out of that and wait aside. There are also many stops to listen to the guide so you are not actually walking for the entire 2 hrs. We loved our tour guide. The bathroom stop is not until the end but that wasn't a problem. We were all given the opportunity to use the facilities before we left for the tour.

Our tour guide Libby Bollino was very informative and energetic. She pointed out details that we might have missed. She showed a variety of styles of architecture and provided interesting historical information. I would definitely recommend this tour.
A very interesting walking tour. We learned a lot about the history and architecture . Things you don't pick up from a book. The Garden District is a must see. There was just the two of us on a rainy morning, but the tour continued anyway and the tourguide was eager to show us all the splendour of this neighbourhood. The sun came through after some time and we were really glad we booked this tour. When you're gonna be in New Orleans you shouldn't miss out on this wonderful tour. Good value for money.

The Beautiful Garden City with it's rich history and architecture is something I personally recommend, if you would like to get out of the French Quarters for a while. Our Guide was a fountain of information and made this for a very pleasant morning stroll.
This tour is a must, especially for first timers!
On the swamp tour, we saw at least 4 alligators, 3 bald eagles one in flight, a cardinal, a turtle, and two egrets. Our guide, Brian, was an alligator hunter. He was very knowledgeable and not surprisingly, an expert in spotting them.
We visited two plantations - the Oak Alley and Laura plantations. They were so different in architecture and design, but both had its own charm and full of history.
A buffet lunch was included. My favorite dish was the crawfish étouffée and for dessert, the bread pudding. Simply the best!
This was our second tour of the Garden District with the last one being ten years ago. Always a great walk to see the architecture and hear the history of the district. A must do when in New Orleans.
Carol did a wonderful job showing us around the Garden District. There was a lot to learn, and a lot to see. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn more about the city, the architecture, and the famous people who have lived there.
I enjoyed the tour. The guide was very friendly and demonstrated considerable history knowledge of the architecture of the city. It was a great tour which I did not feel that we rushed at all and had time to explore on my own, but enjoyed the day learning about the interesting history and life in New Orleans.

Any lover of historic homes will thoroughly enjoy this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the area and provided us with many details related to the history, architecture, ownership, and even price range of these beautiful old homes. The best part was walking the neighborhoods--it certainly gives a much more intimate view of the homes and gives opportunity to see things that would be missed in a vehicle. The worst part, ironically, is the walking. Due to time constraints, we at times had to rush through certain areas. Plus it allows exposure to the elements; the day we went it was drizzling and down in the 30's. Keep this in mind when you prepay this tour, depending upon the season. And remember, the tours are conducted despite the weather--no refunds are given.
