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.
great tour around the beautiful Garden District with a knowledgeable guide! The house we were able to go inside of was totally breath-taking and a real treat to see a house preserved in such a way to give you a real sense of how these grand houses would have looked years ago. We also got a quick visit to the Lafayette Cemetery and saw the homes of the rich and famous along the way. Lovely way to spend the day, value for money and highly recommended.
This tour was a lot of fun! You cover a lot of ground, so be prepared to walk.
Great tour with Marcia Marcia Marcia!
Very informative historically and currently. On time tour, comfortable tour bus. I love the French Quarter, but learned that there is so much more to New Orleans.
This was a wonderful, fun and educational way to spend a morning. Our guide, Roby, knew so much about the city and its history including dispelling a number of common myths. It was a great time!
Highly interesting and many thanks to a wonderful guide, Robi. Very good insight of the district and cemetery. The tour and our guide are both highly recommended !
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.
Loved this tour. 6 of us went-ages 28 to 65 and was enjoyed by everyone. Walking was leisurely-sometimes uneven due to the roots of the trees upending the sidewalks, but we were always forewarned by our guide when we were approaching an uneven area. Guide was great, very informative and just a lovely place to walk and get some history.
Sandy did a great job! Giving us perfect mix of old and new for the Garden District
This tour was excellent! Our guide was so knowledgeable about New Orleans history and the homes we were seeing. Would definitely recommend this tour!
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.
There is no describing the beauty of the Garden District... You have to see it! This tour is the perfect way! Our guide, Julie was great! She knew so much of the history. This was the perfect way to spend a couple hours, our first morning in New Orleans.
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.
Even though we had to view the mansions from under the spokes of our umbrellas, we loved every minute of this lovely stroll through the garden district. The guide was very informative and very easy to hear, which surprised me considering the size of the group and the fact that we were outside most of the time.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very funny, with interesting quips about the houses, neighborhoods and residents. My advice, wear cool clothing, comfortable shoes and bring a hat. Its a lot of walking and the sun can be intense. Great Experience!
This was a great tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and explained the history of the houses in dept. Even though it was warm walking the guide kept us interested in the tour, Recommend this tour.
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!
Tour was great. Just the right length. Awesome tour guide. Learned so much about the area. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide, Robi, was awesome. He was friendly, very knowledgeable not just about the district, but the whole city of New Orleans, and made the tour so fun....we almost forgot about the heat! We were given water for the walk, and Robi was constantly checking on everyone to be sure we were doing well in the heat of the city. I would absolutely recommend this tour to my friends and family and especially our tour guide. Great time, very much worth the money.
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!
