We recently took the garden district tour hosted by Angie. She did a beautiful job explaining the history of the garden district and why the area is so different from the French Quarter. She was very knowledgable and her love of the city came through. I highly recommend this tour.

Our tour guide was very nice, had good energy, and we learned a lot from him. He went above and beyond to answer any questions and even provided suggestions for everyone in our group with close places to eat and shopping following our tour. Great tour for all ages.

My tour guide was happy and full of energy. I could tell she loved what she did. She provided a mixture of history with a dash of horticulture. The guide also pointed out some houses where famous people live or lived. Although the cemetery was closed for tourists, the guide spent a few minutes talking about what was inside. This was a fun way to learn about this area and why it is so different from the rest of New Orleans.

This tour was one of the highlights of our family trip to NOLA. Our tour guide, Harris, did a fabulous job with the tour and information! It was a good mix of history, cemeteries, homes/ architecture, and story telling. Our family group consisted of teenage children, young adult children and middle age parents. We all thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
