It was a very informative tour and our tour guide was well versed in the history, which made the story telling aspect come to live when we were on the grounds.
This is a great tour for anyone interested in art, Impressionist painters or New Orleans history. Although Degas only lived in the house, since separated into two homes, with his brother and family for six months, his mother was from New Orleans, there is a rich history to this period of his life and the change brought to his art. Both the houses are incorporated into the tour. The family alone could be a book. Even though we are all familiar with Edgar Degas work, the insight behind many of his works is explained in enlightening detail. We left with a entirely new perspective of this great artist.
Adding to the depth of intimate knowledge, and charm, is that the tour is hosted by the Great-Grand nieces of Degas himself.
Petit déjeuné très copieux mais surtout nous avons passé un très bon moment avec une descendante de Degas qui nous a ravis
The tour is interesting. Our guideguide was related to Degas which was fascinating. The video could have been shorter.
Liked it alot..v interesting and influential time of his life..quite a way so need a car/cab
I really enjoyed my trip the Degas House. There was no original art there, but the tour was run by a great grand daughter of a cousin of Degas. She really gave a lot of flavor of the times and growth of New Orleans. I felt it was a worthwhile trip. I took the 91 bus from Canal Street and Ramparts and was left a block away, and the bus stops right in front of the house for the trip back. My tour from viator and was supposed to include a trip to the New Orleans Art Museum too and I paid a premium for that option. No rep or message was there from Viator about that part of the tour. The woman running the Degas House tour told me the museum was closed Mondays but feeling sorry for me gave me a ticket to the museum for the next day which was very nice but it threw off my tight schedule as I was leaving New Orleans Tuesday. So I am very disappointed in Viatour though my friend had recommended them to me. I am now concerned about booking through Viatour again. They ought to review their website.
Only gave it a 3 star because we had booked the breakfast and we did not get it. The tour itself was great.
The brochure indicated the grand niece of Degas would lead the tour, she did not. The guide was very knowledgeable of Degas and New Orleans history. Very little original art.
