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!

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!!

The tour guide was fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and The Garden District. We loved seeing the beautiful homes and would highly recommend this tour!

Our guide Diane was excellent! Her knowledge and stories were such a treat to listen to. I would highly recommend he and this tour. The houses and gardens were beautiful!

Erin was amazing and extremely knowledgable. Her energy was great and she had such a nice balance of information and entertainment.
