One of the first things we did with our NO Sightseeing Pass. We weren’t sure what we were in for but it was very entertaining. Loved the interesting stories about the history of NOLA. There a great coffee shop close by The Pagoda Cafe.

We wanted this to be a good tour and experience. Unfortunately it just wasn't. As a fan of Degas and his works I knew we'd be visiting the house and not an art museum, and I wasn't expecting to see any original pieces of artwork. There are other museums to have that experience.
