We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent with Tara Schroeder. She was a warm and friendly New Orleans native with great historic knowledge weaved into interesting local folklore. All of the homes we passed were gorgeous with lush expansive lawns. Tara chose the most interesting homes to stop and share stories. We had time to take pictures and ask questions and laugh. The stroll through Lafayette Cemetery was enlightening and interesting as well. I would highly recommend Tara as a guide and hope to have the opportunity to use her again in the future.

Tara was an incredible guide. She knew the history of New Orleans in great detail and added so many unusual and interesting facts to our walk. We saw beautiful houses and Tara added great background information to each. The highlight was the cemetery tour..again with all the history, it was an educational and fun fun experience.

Very impressive tour. My tour guide was Tara, and I was very lucky to be toured exclusively by her with an one-to-one guide. We visited all of the stunning and beautiful mansions and gardens as listed. She was quite knowledgeable of the history of the houses, the story of the owners, and how did they made wealth at the early days. She was welcoming and good story teller with offering more than enough information to me. I got to know the shotgun house, the belief underneath the colors of the ceiling, movie of interview of the vampires and the writer of Anne Rice. Also, the gardens under the name of different families appealed to me very much. I felt very thankful for her and wanted to learn more about New Orleans.

Good tour! It was a highlight of my trip to see all of the stunning and beautiful mansions. Our guide was great with giving us all sorts of interesting information about the architecture and who lived in these homes. Plus, as a fan of American Horror Story I got to see the house where the third season was filmed! Highly recommended!
