Jane was excellent and a very enthused story teller. She provided us snippets of history and gave context to the garden district neighborhood. She appeared to be knowledgeable and really seemed to be enjoying leading the tour. There was a large group of rather obnoxious young women who did not seem to care about the tour and were talking over her. She handled them well and did not let them affect her tour.
I LOVE the all the historical view points that our guide provided! She was fabulous!
Nita was fantastic and full of information and "kept the cats in a hurd". Great information and a deep love of her NOLA
All my expectations were met. The group was a good size of about 10. Gave a great overview of the cemetery and did not over endulge or dramatize. Saw some of the most amazing homes with great history behind them. My best take away is to alway look for tours given my the historical society. You know you are getting the true facts.
Frank is a great tour guide! Very informative and entertaining.
We had a great tour with Ralph as our docent guiding us through the Garden District and the Lafayette Cemetery. He was very knowledgeable and personable. We would definitely recommend Ralph as a docent for our friends.
Great tour with great information and an awesome and knowledgeable guide.
Jill was a wonderful guide and gave us great information
Awesome tour. The guide was a long time native of New Orleans and had lots of insights into The Garden District. She was dynamic and informative and kept it moving. I only wished we had booked a haunted history tour with your company. We had a bad experience with a different company. Great tour from your company from top to bottom, From now on for us there is only one name in New Orleans tours.

Our guide is well versed in the history of the garden district and his voice carried very well so even with a moderately large crowd we could hear him. It is a beautiful tour and this is the second time I have done it with out of town guests and I was pleasantly surprised to too a few new sights and hear a few new facts!
Most enjoyable 2 hours.

We will definetely be back in the future and recommend this tour to everyone!

Great guide David Thomas, kept us moving, shared interesting information but wasn't too much, never got boring, I was never disinterested.
Guide was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and New Orleans as a whole. Really enjoyed the tour.
Nita was amazing! Tour was very interesting and informative but most of all, it was fun!
We were very satisfied with the Garden District tour but felt the cocktail tour was just so-so. The Garden District tour was extremely informative and the guide was excellent. He mixed information about historic New Orleans with information about well known current residents. The highlight of the cocktail tour was the opportunity to see the various rooms in Antones. The jokes were pretty corny and although the tour was long, we didn't feel it was very good value.
