Went on a tour with Roseanna, even as a young couple we found her to be not only fun but informative. We would refer anyone who would ask to check out the tour and hope to get Rosanna. Her ties to this house run deep and she has a great respect for the house and the history. <3Tula & Tattoo

We had a wonderful time exploring this home. Ott was very welcoming and knew so much about the house and Mrs. Keyes. The free books were tempting, and her collections were interesting. Taking photos is fine. Her living quarters looked as though she may have just stepped out. Ott was the jewel of the tour. So friendly and knowledgeable, he... More

Tour guide was knowledgeable and interesting. House was beautiful, I enjoyed exploring and gearing the history behind it. Its easy to imagine how life could've been back then while inside! Would've liked to seen the basement and attic but they were roped off. Overall a good tour for only $10!

The docent guide was TERRIBLE. Irreverent and offensive. A complete lack of respect for the home AND more importantly to us, our time! Any value to the home was sucked out by this windbag. This is a six room house w a courtyard and rear out building. The general responsible for the confederate flag lived here for two years. Also... More

The house is absolutely glorious, with original woodwork and flooring. The most recent owner of the house, Mrs. Keyes, had an amazing life. She had a collection of fans, including one that had been owned by both Empress Eugenie of France, and Queen Victoria. There were photos of Mrs. Keyes with 20s celebrities, like Lon Chaney, and she was good... More

Our tour guide Ott made our visit to this historic site great. We had four in our party and spent much time after the tour with him never feeling rushed. We thought it was a great value as well as there was a Living Social deal for admission. Highly recommended by all four in our group

Right across from the Ursuline Convent and you can do them both in half a day. Nice insight into NOLA across 100 years. had a wonderful guide with a personal tie to the house, but i won;t ruin the surprise.

My daughter and I visited several historical homes and plantations while in New Orleans and we found our visit at the Beauregard-Keyes House to be the most hands on of any of them. Exposure to 2 different time periods in history was also interesting. We were able to walk through the rooms and not just look from behind rope barriers.... More

Most, if not all of the historic house tours, are either roped off by room, or stictly hands off! This tour you are able to touch some things. In addition, this tour welcomes pictures! Go Figure. The tour, which is about an hour, takes you through the home of the Confederate General Beauregard, which was later used by the writer... More

This house is a wedding venue, so I'd recommend calling ahead to be certain that tours are operating and that catering staff hauling items throughout the house won't impact your visit. On the day of our visit, the 3 PM tour was canceled, but it wasn't noted on the website. We were lucky, so we thought, to have chosen the... More
