    Great Garden District tour!

    Learned many interesting facts that are specific to the New Orleans area, especially pertaining to the garden district. Our guide was very knowledgeable on the architecture of the homes/years built, and also on the different prominent residents throughout the centuries; (Including some in the cemetery). I highly recommend this tour, James was very informative, and answered all our questions in an enjoyable manner, and was “full” of wonderful stories. Great walking tour!

    Our Garden District tour with Jackie was fantastic! We loved that she chose to meet at a cafe so we could enjoy a delicious breakfast beforehand. She even texted me a photo the day before so we’d know who to look for and to confirm attendance. We ended up being the only two on her tour and she was still happy to walk us around. Many others would have cancelled on us, but she really went above and beyond. She carried notes about each house’s history and recent events to make sure we got accurate information and the big picture, and made the tour interactive with fun facts and her delightful storytelling. She answered all our questions and asked us questions, we had a great dialogue the entire time. We were lucky and had fabulous weather to enjoy our walk through this beautiful historical neighborhood, but she was well prepared for anything we might have needed, from sunblock to ponchos, just in case! She recommended a couple of other tours if we had time while in town, and restaurant spots as well, and offered to walk back with us to the original meet up location so we could get our bearings and go from there if needed. Definitely recommend this tour company, they and their guides seem really invested in making sure you have a great experience, which we absolutely did. Thanks again Jackie!

    Our guide was personable and well informed on the history and architectural details of the homes we saw. Also did a good job of explaining the history and burial procedures unique to New Orleans. A good mix of education and entertainment.

    The swamp experience was wonderful!!! The plantation trip way too short. The bus ride way, way too long. We spent half our time on the very hot bus. The bus ride was miserable.
