Marcia, our guide, was interesting and informative. Her small facts about the area showed how much she has learned and is learning about her tour. Her tip on lunch at Commanders Palace was great and we actually went the very next day. Overall a great experience that we would recommend to anyone coming to New Orleans.

great way to learn about the neighborhood history and see historical homes.
Nancy was our tour guide and she made the entire 2 hours terrific. She was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic about every spot we stopped at. She was a great representative of a smart Southern woman and we had a great time. Not to mention the incredible pecan praline cookies she gave out at the end!
It was a very good tour. Our tour guide Nancy really knew her history. I highly recommend it.
Awesome tour! Our guide, Marcia, was very knowledgeable about the Garden District and the historical homes there. Highly recommended.
Excellent tour loaded with history, architecture, local flavor, and personal commentary from Carol, our wonderful guide. We learned a lot and enjoyed the experience.
Good tour, even in the rain, the inside of the opera house is the highlight
Lovely walk through the Garden District. Our guide Carol pointed out all the celebrity homes, and shared tidbits about renovations and histories of the various homes. You get to tour the Seebold mansion too. My highlight was seeing the Manning home. :
The cemetery portion of the tour is very brief. If you want to learn more and spend more time in a cemetery, then take a tour that is specifically for cemeteries.
Note... there's lots of walking over uneven surfaces the sidewalks are not exactly level and smooth.
Our guide was Midge. She was great. We enjoyed seeing all of the mansions in the Garden District, including Sandra Bullock's, John Goodman's and a couple of Anne Rice's previous houses. Nice walk.
Watch out for the sidewalks though. We enjoyed seeing the Lafayette 1 cemetery and the history along with it. I would recommend this tour to see these spots.
Sheila, our guide, was an architect who knew the houses and the cemetery well. She told us about the history of the Garden District and of its houses.
Marcia was great and the tour was informative and enjoyed going inside the Opera House.
Great tour. Well worth your time and your money. The homes are sensational and the historical narrative is excellent. Jo Ann is terrific!
Tour Guide Nancy really knows this neighborhood. This tour was excellent and I highly recommend it.
Good tour, the best bit is the cemetery, wish we could have spent longer there.
This was a wonderful and informative tour. Marcia was our tour guide and she kept the conversation going with facts and plenty of laughter. We even got to tour the interior of a house. What a treat! I highly recommend Marcia and this tour.
Mary was an excellent guide. Very knowledgable on New Orleans and Garden District. Would highly recommend this tour.
My group really enjoyed this tour. This was my second tour of the Garden District and I learned much more about the neighborhood than I did on the first trip. Our tour guide, Marsha, was great. She adjusted the pace of the tour to those in the group and she explained the sights in an interesting way. I would highly recommend this tour, especially if she is the tour guide.,

The tour was wonderful, the tour guide was knowledgeable and the homes were beautiful. We have been to New Orleans many times but this is the first time we had a chance to see the Garden District from the inside out. We highly recommend this tour!
This is one of the only tours that I could find where you might actually see the inside of a home in the garden district. The tour guide was very knowledgable and very accommodating.
Wonderful tour and full of history. Our tour guide, Nancy, was very good as well!
Our tour guide was great. It was both interesting and enjoyable.
