All the items on display were open, so you could get very close to them and see every detail. The guide was great, he knew all the little details, and he knows this home very well

Some interesting people have lived in this house over the last 150+ years, and the tour is very well-done to give a flavor of the times past. Tours begin on the hour Monday-Saturday, so try to arrive just before a tour time. You don’t just...More

One of my favourite experience in NOLA. I was the only person who turned up for the tour, so it was a private experience. Unfortunately I have forgotten the name of the guide, but he was a former caretaker of the home and was full...More

I hopped for a better story and a better more enthusiastic host but the tour was informative. I was hoping to have someone dressed the part and maybe be more inviting, offer us some lemonade or iced tea! It was hot!

This was one of our favorite tours especially since our guide was so enthusiastic! This house has seen so much history. Even the architecture tells of the changing times. They do have the chest General Beauregard took to war and furnishings from his family. Also...More

This is the home of a leading Confederate general that was preserved by a well known and prolific writer. It blends two periods of New Orleans history.

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

I think it must. They only let you into the house at certain limited times, and then the door is locked and everyone inside goes on the tour. You can't just wander around by yourself.
