This is probably the best way to see the Garden District. Our guide did an excellent job of explaining the history of the area and the architecture of the buildings. A nice benefit of this tour was being able to go into one of the houses, owned by the Opera Guild. That's the only way you get to se the interior of any of these homes. In addition, she pointed out several celebrity homes which is always interesting. The visit to the cemetery was only about 20 minutes but she provided a very good description of how the above ground burial system works. If we had tried to do thiis on our own we would have learned very little, so the tour was well worth the money and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see the Garden District.
Daniel our tour guide had so much knowledge, he was amazing. Showed us a totally different side from the French quarter. beautiful mansions and the stories behind them.
Wonderful tour, and a wonderful guide. Mary showed us beautiful homes and provided us with so much information about them, and the beautiful area
Very good tour. Lady guide very knowledgeable on her subject. Lots of walking on uneven surfaces so wear flat comfortable shoes. Would recommend.
5 stars. Nancy did a wonderful job as our tour guide. She was very knowledgeable and really seemed to enjoy telling us all the history of New Orleans. She did a great job and was very friendly.
A must do for anyone who loves historical homes. Sandy, our tour guide, made the tour enjoyable with her knowledge of the area and New Orleans.
Learned a lot. Guide was excellent. Beautiful area of the city and worth seeing.
This is a relaxing and very informative tour for those seeking to learn about New Orleans history. The guide Daniel, did an excellent job in his delivery and interesting facts. Actually visited inside one of the mansions and walked past many more with long interesting history. Additionally, there are celebrity homes, cemetery stop, and a mid point coffee stop. Overall, our entire group felt this was time well spent!
The tour guide did an excellent job. She was very informative and entertaining -- even in the rain!
Fantastic tour! We were debating whether to visit the garden district on our own or with a tour, but I'm really glad we did the tour! Our guide, Sheila, was fantastic. She knew all sorts of details and was a wealth of information. For example, when we visited Lafayette Cemetery, we learned a lot of things about individual graves and who they contained such as John Howard Ferguson from Plessy v. Ferguson that gave us an appreciation we would otherwise have lost on our own.
Besides the cemetery, the other highlights included seeing the houses of John Goodman and Sandra Bullock. We also got to go inside one of the older houses and tour around it.
We were in NOLA for a girls' weekend and we made this tour part of it. So happy we did. Saw a lot of historical and famous homes and learned a lot about the burial process. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable.
Definitely ask for Daniel! He was amazing and so knowledgeable! He made sure every stop was in the shade which was great! Best tour we had in New Orleans!
Our tour guide was Marsha. She was very knowledgeable about each house and provided details that brought the house to life. She also had knowledge of the surroundings which provided context to what we were seeing and why it was there.
Your was amazing. Kati at Laura has such passion for the history and Joe at Oak Alley is knowledgeable and funny. Both are a credit to the history they present. Naji, our driver stretched the time with her to show us as much as possible. She was great. Highly recommend Tours by Isabelle.
Daniel was fun informative and patient. It was one hot day and he made sure we stopped in shade. Would suggest smaller group for this type tour. 16 or less
This was great fun! We travel a great deal and this tour was one of our favorite things to do in New orelans
This walking tour is just what I hoped for and more. Marsha really makes it fun and interesting. She really knows her stuff.
Tour guide was pure southern gem. Extremely knowledgeable -- she grew up in the garden district -- and full of southern anecdotes to make the tour was interesting and fun.
Beautiful tour! Our tour guide and her family cookies were delicious. We loved going into one of the homes too!
Tour Guide Nancy did a fantastic job taking us through the Garden District and Lafayette Cemetery. She was knowledgeable and able to explain the history of the area. We were able to tour the Opera Guild house, which was beautiful. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone going to New Orleans,
