Great tour! Lee did a fantastic job. He added a lot of history about the Garden District during the tour and allowed plenty of time at each stop. Good variety of food. We had a group of 6, including teenagers and senior citizens, and everyone had a good time. Do not eat before you go! Lots of food!

What a fun experience! Tasty cuisine on a regular budget. Grace was a great guide and also shared a little history of the Garden District along with some amazing little eateries. Definitely a must do!
