    We took the Garden District walking tour in New Orleans with Diane. It was great. Her level of knowledge was incredible and we didnt even miss going inside the cemetery. She went above and beyond to make things interesting and answer all questions. I would highly recommend this tour and our guide Diane.

    Best if you're into architecture.

    My tour guide was knowledgeable with his subject matter, but I feel like he was somewhat hampered in the fact that cemetery Lafayette #1 is currently closed to the public. It felt like that was probably normally a large part of the tour and, lacking it, he had to fluff a bit by pointing out random facts about architecture and trees(!) for most of the trip. Still, he kept it moving and ended up giving us an extra half hour as he showed off celebrity homes.

    We would definitely suggest taking the tour, especially with DJ being your tour guide! He was very knowledgeable of the area, that we toured through. Being a very hot day, DJ was accommodating to everybody's needs. To ensure everybody was safe and well hydrated! Would take the tour again, when we come back to New Orleans!
