This is a simple, lovely and personal tour of a home with a very characteristic New Orleans architecture. The telling of the home's and its occupants' history, as conveyed by Mr. Howe, was fascinating and entertaining. He did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life and relating it to the history of the city, the south and even... More

If you enjoy history and/or house tours, you will like this. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. The house is lovely and has an interesting history. It is closed on Sundays and, as we found out, the Saturday before Easter. Tours are on the hour and everything is locked until then, so plan accordingly. We didn't, but it gave... More

If you're not into history, old houses, PGT Beauregard or Frances Parkinson Keyes, then this is not the place for you. However if you are into any one of those things I would certainly recommend it. A gorgeous home rich with history, and the man who gave the tour was witty and very kind-spirited. I was not at all disappointed!

This house had several interesting residents and there were several guides to explain them all. There was how it got built, who got killed, who made it a historical site and the obligatory ghost story.

Took this tour in May and it was something we had found on groupon (always a good value for travelers!). The tours start on the hour and the front door will be locked until it's time for the next tour and you will have to wait on the front porch- so prepare yourself for that if you don't enjoy being...

If history is your thing, the Beauregard-Keyes House will definitely deserve a visit! Built in 1826, this is one of the best known historic homes in all of New Orleans... and it is easy to see why. Located in the lovely French Quarter, tours are conducted on the hour, and a wonderful peek into the 19th century will await. The... More

This is a nice example of a New Orleans home. Our tour guide was quite a character which made for some interesting moments in our four person tour. He was knowledgable on the area and gave us some good restaurant tips. Anyway, the house itself has some nice things in it and is beautifully decorated. There is a piano they... More

The house is open for tours on the hour, just turn up and bang on the hour the guide will come to the front door. Pleasant hour spent learning of the history of the house. Interesting place!

My husband and I enjoyed touring this beautiful home. The tour guide, Ott, was especially knowlegeable and witty. He seemed to have a real love for this old home. The decor was spot on as was the attentiion to detail. It's a fantastic value for a little bit of money, a true must see!
