Rained out

We got rained out so enjoyed about 10 minutes tour guide seemed to be good but we didn’t get into tour enough to say for sure
What a great (but wet) tour!

Fantastic tour - not too long, not too short. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and interesting. We toured during Tropical Storm Claudia, which goes to show you her dedication! I would highly recommend this tour to my friends!
Great tour of the Garden District

Angie, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable of the history of the Garden District. After the tour was over, she was nice enough to walk us to a house that we asked about seeing but wasn’t on the tour!

We had a really good time on this tour. Our guide Angie was awesome. I learned a lot of new information about architecture of the houses and burial practices. It was a really hot day. Angie was so thoughtful and tactfully made stops in shaded areas when speaking.

Entertaining and Informative!

Angie is so knowledgeable and personable. She was entertaining and took us past the best spots in the Garden District. I love that she talked about the Live Oaks and other plants, too!
A fun little walk back in time.

This was a great tour and better than we even anticipated. Luckily the weather was nice enough for a summer stroll through New Orleans, and there's plenty of shade along the way to help keep things cool. The houses are gorgeous, but the highlight of the tour was our guide, Angie. She was full of energy and kept things humorous during our trek with lots of stories and jokes. I highly recommend the tour and hopefully you get to experience it with Angie leading the way.
Fun informative
