Excellent tour for a morning walk

David Reichard was our tour guide, and he is great and knowledgeable about the Garden District’s history, the houses and their owners/stories. It’s not a fast paced tour, so you can enjoy your 2-hour walk through this beautiful neighborhood. It’s a pity that the Lafayette cemetery is closed and you can only see some of it from the locked gates.

Learning history of the area, and about the architecture. The explanation of the cemetery was also intriguing.

Anna González was great, lots of information, pleasant and personal experience! I do wish it was clearer on the tour page that the cemetery was closed, but we did appreciate learning the history.

Would have loved to add even just a couple of the beautiful pictures I got from this tour. The app wouldn’t let me. But we had so much fun walking around and learning about this part of town. Our guide was awesome and really knowledgeable. We had a small group of only three, and I have to admit that having smaller numbers was really nice.

It was shortly after NOLA reopened in OCT 2020, and I was the only one on this tour. Highly appreciative that Dave did this just for one person. He's extremely knowledgeable and it was all very interesting. I feel like it was well well well worth the price
