    A wholly excellent experience.

    Our tour guide (Renee) was extremely knowledgeable. She was a monstrous waterfall of information on the area, the homes, the history, and the construction. She was entertaining as well as informative. I would strongly recommend that anyone considering this tour should ask for Renee if she is available.

    Thank you for this great review! Renee is a great guide, but from now on we are calling her "Monstrous Waterfall of Information!" The Garden District is indeed beautiful, but with a skilled guide like Renee, the history and character of the mansions and their surroundings comes out and make a walk among the live oaks unforgettable. Please come again! Libby

    James was a great guide. Knowledgeable and personable. He has an obvious love for New Orleans in general and the Garden District in particular

    Fascinating neighborhood walk

    While the the title is a bit misleading (Garden Walk) it was nonetheless fascinating. The title would lead you to believe it is more like botanical gardens. The walk provided an historical overview of the magnificent homes, cemeteries and occupants that may include celebrities who own some of these homes. There is some information of the foliage and trees endemic to NOLA. Our tour guide, James was knowledgeable, jovial and an excellent tour guide.

    Josh was an amazing tour guide. He was well informed and brought the history of the Garden District to life. I highly recommend this tour. This company keeps tour sizes small relative to other tours offered in this area which we greatly appreciated. The small size of the group allowed time for questions and a more customized tour.

    10/10 best tour of the garden district

    Lovely walking tour around the garden district. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. He answered all of our questions (the group had a lot) but never got annoyed no matter how silly the question. We walked a lot of ground and he even drove me to the AHS Coven house since we didn’t pass it on our tour. 10/10 would do again and would suggest all my friends and family do this tour when visiting New Orleans

    Our tour guide was James, and he was phenomenal! Super personable, have a ton of interesting history and architects information, and just made it overall a super fun excursion. James also went out of the way to bring me to the AHS Coven/Buckner Mansion, and it literally made my day!! Will recommend to anyone visiting New Orleans!
