Terrific Tara Tour!

We were happy to have Tara as our guide, and since the tourist numbers were low due to Covid 19 we were the only 2 people to tour with Tara today! She told us many fascinating details of many beautiful homes. We were worried it would be too hot, but a rain showered us to cool things off. Tara even offered to postpone/continue our tour another day due to the rain, but we were fine with our ponchos/umbrellas. Although we didn't go inside the homes, Tara was kind enough to send us links of several of the homes for us to virtually tour later. The info about the cemetery was also quite interesting. We would definitely recommend this tour!

Graham is a professional historian and longtime resident of the city. He was a wealth of information about history, culture and architecture—all in a personable presentation. Top tier.

Our guide, Randy, was terrific! The amount of information he gave us was unbelievable and all so interesting. My only complaint is directed at whomever I spoke to on the phone. She told us we would see the outside of the cemetery that Maria Laveau was laid to rest. I was disappointed about the misinformation but Randy made up for this with his funny tour.

We really enjoyed this walking tour. It took about 2 hours 15 minutes or so with a rest stop and we saw quite a few impressive homes in the area. Tara was our guide, and she did a great job pointing out the interesting history behind a number of properties, including the homes of a few celebrities. The cemetery was fascinating, and we learned a lot about burial customs and even the origin of a number of popular sayings. Overall time well spent, we'd definitely recommend.
