Great historic overview of New Orleans, and how the Garden District fit in. Guide (Frank) was knowledgeable, polite, and had a great sense of humor.
Knowledgeable fun tour guide. She even took us to the "coven house"!
Excellent tour! Our host, Dave, was fantastic. Knowledgeable, funny, interesting. Would highly recommend.

Our tour guide Randy was excellent! He was knowledgeable, sassy and funny.
Dave Roberts was terrific! I loved his stories and openness to conversation. We had a terrific time.
The tour was rain or shine, it was a very rainy morning but thankfully it calmed down a bit and we enjoyed our tour as well as the knowledge of the local area our guide provided!
Our guide Dave Roberts was a wealth of knowledge and not only gave us an incredibly informative tour but also had a great sense of humor. He answered all of our questions and had lots of experience giving tours.
Very knowledgeable and engaging. Brought out diverse info. Made the info come to life
Our tour guide was Dave Roberts (I think I have that right.) He was the right mix of history and humor. Very knowledgeable about New Orleans. We all had a great time and my friends think I'm amazing for finding this tour.
Enjoyed the graveyard and the neighborhood walk. Overall, a good tour.
Our guide was fantastic!
My group was excited to add this tour at the last minute. The tour was good, it just felt like it was too big (especially once we picked-up 3 more people in the cemetery). While our guide was knowledgeable, she didn't manage the group well. They were blocking sidewalks and moving slowly. Also, while the guide did a good job, she was not as dynamic or as full of information as some other guides that we did tours with during our stay in New Orleans.
I found this tour recommended on a site and compared it to others offered in the area. For me, it had a bit of the cemetery history and architectural history combined in one tour so it seemed like he best fit for us. Jane was incredibly informative. You can really tell she knew the Garden District and it’s history as well as she knew herself. She was fun but informative, and I would highly recommend her and this tour to any and all who visit New Orleans!
Martha was great. We had beautiful weather and I learned and saw a great deal
Our guide was wonderful!
Overall it went very well. Knowledgeable tour guide, and good tour duration and pace. Thank you!
Our tour guide Dave Thomas was great. We enjoyed our tour immensely.
We had a wonderful time with Elizabeth Ann on our walking tour! She was a great tour guide, very thorough in explanations and answered everyone's questions. I thought the overall tour was a great way to see the Garden District, learn about the history of the area (and New Orleans) and also learn about the cemeteries and burial traditions. Would definitely book again and refer to friends!
Elizabeth, our tour guide, was excellent - very informative and knowledgeable; efficient at keeping us all together and just a nice person. She made the tour an enjoyable experience.
Tour guide was very informative, interesting and humorous. Only issue was size of group. With limited sidewalk space and some sections in disrepair it was sometimes difficult to keep up with the guide and to thus hear what he was saying.
Nita was an excellent guide.
Too much time in the cemetery
Frank was very knowledgeable about the Garden District and about all of New Orleans!! He made it interesting & FUN!!! Highly recommend!!!!
