I recently went to New Orleans with my mom and sister in law and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour.Midge was our guide and was full of interesting New Orleans history and explaining the architecture of the mansions.I would highly recommend this tour and would do again if i go back to NO.
Our guide Mary E. was an exceptionally knowledgeable guide. Due to her life long attachment to the city, she was able to offer many insights into the history Garden District. Grey Line offers the only interior home interior, an added bonus experience to the tour. O’Neill, our driver greeted us with welcomed cold water both prior and at the conclusion of the tour. He transported our group with an insiders expertise. The Garden District Tour is an excellent introduction to New Orleans and a must do!
Tour was lovely. Saw many stately homes, including the ones belonging to well known celebrities. Tour of the old opera house was special. The cemetery tour was enjoyable, albeit hot! Only problems- the street traffic drowned out the guides commentary at times. The guide also didn't watch her flock too well- an elderly, handicapped woman tripped and fell, with the guide completely oblivious to the situation. Thank goodness she wasn't hurt. That being said, this is probably the best of the Garden District tours.
Our guide for the tour, Marcia, was excellent. She was informative, charming, and had a sense of humor. My daughter and I had a limited amount of time in New Orleans. This tour covered exactly what we wanted to see - mansions and a cemetery. Marcia gave us key details about the exterior of the homes we were viewing from the street. I especially enjoyed the interior tour of the home owned by the Opera Guild. Although a brief stop at Lafayette Cemetery, Marcia was able to give more than enough information regarding the history and reasons behind the cemeteries in New Orleans. We were able to get a feel for another area of New Orleans other than the French Quarter. I just wish we had had the time to visit the shops and restaurants in the Garden District. Be certain to wear sturdy shoes as some of the sidewalks on this tour need repair. We were also able to see some other areas of the town such as Irish Lace and the Business District from the bus.
I thought the tour was very good, and I learned many things about New Orleans I was unaware of. The houses are gorgeous, and the one we visited was impressive. The guide was very good but her voice was not strong enough and at times you could miss details if you were a little behind. Maybe the use of whisperers little microphones which are given to the tour participants, and which I have seen used a lot in European tours should be considered in the future?
The Garden District is a MUST SEE! Sandie was charming, sassy and southern.... Very knowledgeable. She loves the City of New Orleans and her love of the city was evident throughout the tour! The tour was well organized and the staff extremely efficient. The walk was delightful. Easy walk just need to watch your step as the sidewalk is rarely even...
