The tour starts on the hour and is only $10. None of the rooms are roped off and you can actually touch items which makes you feel like a guest and not a paid visitor. Beautiful old home with lots of charm and period furniture. The tour was great and loved the history of the home.

I happened upon the Beauregard-Keyes House on Groupon, and purchased the tour for four people due to how close it was to our hotel. We were not disappointed. My father, a history buff loved the Civil was history of the house as well as the modern-day renovations that later owner and author Francis Keyes made to the house. The tour... More

We saw this house as part of our walking tour of the city. It was a very interesting tour of the authoresses residence. The history of the house along with its contents make it very special. I would recommend taking the tour especially if you're interested in either the writer or history.

Attended a private event at this semi-restored home in New Orleans. It's a historic home that's currently run as a museum focused on some of the important owners including Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard and author Frances Parkinson Keyes. It's semi-interesting, but a bit dirty and shopworn. There are better historic homes to tour like the Hermann-Grima House and... More

My husband and I toured this home before the Old Ursuline Convent. I didn't know anything about the history of the home, but saw that it was a popular attraction in NOLA, so we decided to check it out. Our tour guide was okay, but he didn't seem like he was having a good day. Although, to be fair, two... More

Our tour guide was very funny and entertaining in an informal way. The house was interesting as well as the collections, art and furniture inside.

This historic house is very close to Jackson Square, so it's a great place to visit if you're in New Orleans on vacation and especially if you don't have a car. I love preserved houses like this, and it was a quick 45-minute tour for just a few dollars (we had a Groupon), so it was really worth it. It's... More

Beautiful home. Accurate information. The PGT is for Pierre Gustave Toutant, btw. The tour guide (Robert) was a little crusty and not receptive to questions.

We lucked out by getting a small group despite it being a beautiful Saturday. The tour guide was very sweet and informative and seemed to take genuine interest in the place. This was a very different tour in that most I go on are all about "Stay behind the rope!" We were able to actually touch things in the house.... More
