My mom and I wanted to go on a plantation tour, but ran out of time. This tour gave us a feel for what life was like in historic NOLA. Beautiful furniture, architecture, and only 2 others on the tour. Very knowledgable guide.

This was a great tour! The docent was so interesting and had quite a number of facts about this house and the people who lived here. I had no idea Frances Parkinson Keyes was such a prolific author! I am now curious about her works. The history of General Beauregard was also fascinating. The house is gorgeous and has many... More

Our tour guide was very thorough with the history and stories of the house. The gardens on the side and rear of the house are beautiful, and the interior design restored by Keyes is breath taking! Pictures of the property won't justify, definitely recommend taking a tour and taking lots of pictures.

I came across this tour through Groupon and decided to give it a try to learn more about NOLA's history. I was extremely pleased with the tour, the guide and property itself. On the tour you are walked through many rooms throughout the property, through the courtyard and through the beautiful garden. I truly wish I could remember my guide's... More

A wonderful place to cool off! Tours are very hour on the hour. You have to wait on the porch until the tour guide opens the door. The house holds some history but not a lot. Great artwork, most notably the paintings. Takes 45 minutes, $10

I found this house truly by accident. But it was a great find. The tour guide was truly knowledgable about the house. They are also not uptight about the furnishings. He let a young lady play the old piano. Definitely worth a visit.

This home is a great example of how the other half lived in old New Orleans. The property is maintained well and simply reeks history when you walk through it.

A visit to the Beauregard-Keyes House is a quite interesting journey back in time. The combination of histories - some 19th century and some 20th - is rather eclectic, and quite diverting from the standard historic house/home. You certainly do get the feeling of there being a more recent liveness to the house, including the more recent working area, used... More

As we entered the house, we were offered free Frances Parkinson Keyes books from a table. The docent introduced herself then led us through the house with entertaining stories from the initial building of the unique home in the French Quarter to the Mrs. Keyes time in the home. Never have I visited a historic home where the docent invited... More
