Our tour guide was absolutely fantastic! He was a former history professor at Tulane, so he had a great depth of information to share. With the type of information shared, I would want to go to any of the other tours this company provides! Our tour was so thorough, and even with a hiccup due to a funeral in the cemetery, our guide was willing to take the time to still show us the cemetery when we looped back around toward the end of the tour. Such unique information that you will not find unless speaking to a local! And this tour guide knew his stuff!
Miss Rose was an entertaining, engaging guide
our guide was very knowledgeable of the area.
Jane was very knowledgeable and gave my wife and I a wonderful tour of the beautiful garden district.
Nita was entertaining and informative.
Excellent tour. Our tour guide was Dave and he was very informative throughout the tour. We stopped at many interesting places and learned a great deal about the Garden Disteixt. Would recommend this tour to anyone !
Our tour guide Dave Thomas was very informative, with a great sense of humour! It was a small group so we were able to move along quickly but Dave always had lots of time for questions. It is a nice long walk so wear comfy shoes and make sure you take an umbrella for the rain or sun and some water. Enjoy!
Our tour guide Dave was a wealth of knowledge. We had considered doing our own self guided tour. That would have been a mistake. Dave shared a ton of information regarding the homes, cemetery, history, etc. This was a great value.
Elizabeth was very knowledgeable. She obviously loves history and talking about it. She answered all questions. Very friendly and professional.
Dave was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Our second tour and both were excellent.
Dave was AWESOME!!!
Our tour guide, Jane, was a sheer delight. She is full of knowledge, history and a wonderful and funny personality! I learned so much and laughed and was completely enchanted the entire tour. This tour was a true highlight of my birthday trip to New Orleans for sure! Thank you so much!
Nita was an amazing tour guide! She was so informative, engaging and lovely to be around. I learned so much from her and I’m so glad we took this tour! Amazing. I would definitely recommend her!
Fun stories and great information. Thank you!
This was one of the best tours I have ever been on! We learned so much about the city -- and our guide was INCREDIBLE.
We have taken the Garden District Tour with this company 3 times now. There are consistent things each time, but there is also a difference depending on the guide. It makes it very easy to repeat the tour when we visit New Orleans with people who have never visited before.
Excellent guide. Dave is a native and knows the area well. Personable and able to answer questions. Thank you!

Dave is a wonderful guide. His knowledge of the area, history, and humor made the tour very enjoyable. Dave also is a great source for additional places in NOLA to visit, restaurants and jazz clubs to listen to great music. Highly recommend this tour.

We had a great time learning about the Garden District and we did learn a lot. Our tour guide was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the area. I especially liked learning about the cemetery.
Our guide, Nettie (sp?), was just superb. She provided a wealth of information, anecdote and observations and really kept the group engaged with questions and humor. She was really one of the best guides we’ve had. We can’t recommend the tour highly enough.
Our tour guide was great- knowledgeable and fun.
Tour guide was a bit distracted and some things were explained very confusingly. Would like more about the history than celebrities.
Tour guide was very animated and informative.
Our guide was both entertaining and educational. She gave us a better understanding of New Orleans's history and culture, and we enjoyed touring Lafayette Cemetery and seeing the beautiful homes in the Garden District.
