Relaxed, entertaining tour

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.

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

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

If you are a fan of the author Frances Parkinson Keyes, this is the tour for you! We were the only ones on the tour we took and our guide gave us an extremely interesting and detailed tour of the house, built on property formerly owned by Ursuline nuns. The house has been beautifully restored and is so private that... More

Toured Beauregard-Keyes after touring Ursuline Convent across the street. Our guide Matt was well-versed in the history of the families who lived in the home and the home itself. There were some very educated people in our group who asked challenging questions. Matt did a great job answering everyone's queries. Really enjoyed this tour.

This historic house is a good place to visit while in New Orleans. The tour start every hours. The guide is funny and friendly. He is acknowledgeable about the history of the house and the city. House is well-preserved. Most furniture is made from local material. If you want to see local old furniture, this is a place to visit.... More

A great chance to see the inside of a French Quarter home containing all of the original furniture. Tour guides were warm and welcoming. Not for children, very narrow walkways.
