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.

$10 admission pp, tours on the hour. Our tour took most of the hour as our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We were the only ones on the tour which was surprising. a beautifully preserved house and artifacts- highly recommended

My other half and I were the only ones on the tour and we had a great time. A lot of history discussed. We had a Living Social two for ten dollars, so it was also cheaper than a lot of the other historical homes in the area.

Take a look for yourself, the Home says it all. Many historical books are available for purchase, choose one to take to your home and read. Tour Guide could have been the present day owner, considering their vast knowledge. Thoroughly enjoyed this visit years ago with Anne.

We really enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and took his time answering questions. There is a lot of history to learn about. Tours only begin on the hour. It was well worth the cost of admission.

This beautiful house is impecably mantained as it stood in the 19th century, but the visitor can also see modifications made during the 1940's - quite interesting in and of themselves! The tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, engaging, and throughly enjoyable. The house features furniture owned by General Beauregard (of Confederate fame), and Frances Parkinson Keyes (author of "Dinner at... More

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
