As an American diplomat that was posted and recently evacuated from China, I came to New Orleans not knowing much about the city. I signed up for a full day tour with Urban Adventures through Marriott Bonvoy activities which included a food tour, a cocktail tour, and a jazz tour. I was instantly impressed after the first day and decided to sign up for the Garden District tour with my tour guide Maggie. We started the tour at the Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 where Maggie's insightful knowledge of the history and pop culture of the district impressed upon me. Who knew that a cemetery and blocks of houses can hold so much rich legacy? We walked past by the house of the Confederate President Jefferson Davis. I had my first po-boy sandwich (I had two!) at Parasol's along with a local beer. I truly enjoyed my Garden District tour and would highly recommend anyone who enjoy learning about NOLA and the Garden District to take a tour with Maggie!

We had a great tour with Davis! It was just my fiancé and I so it made it very early to learn a lot from a local and ask questions. We took this tour so we could see an area of New Orleans that we hadn’t been to yet. We learned some cool history about the houses, cemeteries, and had a great po boy and beer. I definitely recommend this tour with Davis!

Davis was an amazing tour guide! He totally recognized our groups interest, was polite, funny and told so many interesting stories. He even told us some insider tips about experiencing some of New Orleans hidden gems. We had beautiful weather and he definitely kept things fun. Would 10/10 recommend.

We took the Garden District tour with Davis on our last day in town and it was a great conclusion to our trip. The neighborhood was a fascinating place and Davis has a wealth of knowledge to share, especially about the cemetery, which we were particularly interested in. Davis is one of the friendliest people we’ve met on our travels and his love of his city added so much to the tour.

Awesome tour, despite the cold. Our guide was funny, knowledgeable, and patient. We had a great time and learned a ton about the area.

I did the walking tour of the Garden District and had a great afternoon. I learned a lot about the history of how the city eas settled by the French and Americans. We visited the famous Lafayette Cemetary, learned about the famous owners of many of the gorgeous homes, and had a tasty bite and a beer at a local bar. Butch was a wealth of historical information, as well as practical tips for things to do, see and eat in the area.
