Our tour guide James honestly made this experience that much better. I’m glad he was our tour guide. They kept the group small to 5 people. Wear comfy shoes closed toe because there’s a lot of cracks and holes in the sidewalks, you might trip, I did lol. He was hilarious and explained so much. The Lafayette cemetery no 1 is closed to visitors but you could see it really good through the gate. He also had a binder with pictures which were super cool to see. I recommend a water bottle and/or fan and use the restroom before you go because you won’t find any around the area. But i highly Recommend this tour. He also asked if there was anything specific any of us wanted to see and i said The American horror story house that they filmed at and we went by and he took pics for us. Thank you so much!

I cannot recommend this tour enough! A great START and first impression for our trip to NOLA. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and frequently gave tips on what to do and see during the rest of our trip. We stopped in St. Louis cemetery no.3, and in city park. There was a quick restroom break mid tour and a stop for coffee/snack at cafe du monde. One of the best city tours we’ve been on in any US city.

We were very impressed with the tour. The tour guide, Charlotte, had a wonderful personality and was very knowledgeable about New Orleans history. We learned first hand that there is more to NOLA than the French Quarter. I would suggest this tour on the first day of your stay because you will be introduced to the various neighborhoods which will give you ideas of where you want to go and see.

We were lucky enough to take a Garden District tour with the charismatic, humorous, historical Guru, Mr. James. He is an area resident with a passion for everything New Orleans. His Conservationist outlook is highlighted with refreshing new takes on 200 year old architecture and local lore. Thanks James!!

Beautiful houses! Good information. Sidewalks are terrible so wear comfortable shoes. Tour guide was nice and knowledgeable. He walked extremely fast and it was hard to keep up with him. So we were totally exhausted afterwards. Not a leisurely stroll and missed seeing several of the beautiful homes.
