Steven was our tour guide and he was great! Our taxi driver took us in the wrong direction making us late to meet up with the tour. But Steve called us twice so that we could find and catch up with the tour and we did. He toured us through the cemetery on 400 Washington St. This was our second cemetery tour of the day and my husband and I learned even more history about the New Orleans and the residents old this cemetery.

Steve then took us around the Garden District to view the amazing houses there. Explaining the architecture and the history of the houses. Each one distinct from the next. Loved it!

Tours by Steven - Steven was our guide. He was fun and very entertaining - loved his tour. The tour was full of information both on the cemetery - very interesting - and the garden/mansion district as well. The only thing that would have improved this tour would have been if Peyton and Eli were at their mom and pop's home to give us a high five. Definitely take this tour - you'll be glad you did!

Fantastic experience with Steven! I would highly recommend this tour, and if I ever come back to NOLA I would definitely book with Steven again! He's a great guide, very knowledgeable, knows all the local people and stories AND their dogs, and very friendly and accommodating. This was definitely a highlight of my trip. Additionally, the tour location can be easily reached via street car from downtown. One tip- wear walking shoes, if not for the length of the tour, the sidewalks can be precarious.
