There were no visitors there when we arrived but the tour guide was nice enough to give us a tour even though a tour was scheduled 45 minutes later. The tour guide was excellent! He was knowledgeable about the history of the house and his presentation was very informative! We really enjoyed it!

There was a lot of information, but if we hadn't gotten a discount from Groupon, I think we would have felt cheated. I guess you can only see so many old homes.

Her doll collection and collection of veilleuses are on display as well as pictures of famous people who visited her. The furnishings in the house belonged to Ms. Keyes, and she restored the garden which is included... More

This was a very nice tour and we have been back a couple of times with friends to show them that NOLA has so much more to offer than just Bourbon Street!

An amazing story of resurrection of this old house by my favorite author. The entire home is a treasure and the people of New Orleans owe it all to FPK and the ladies of NOLA!

Haven't toured the house, per se... but we did get married in the garden, and it was PERFECT! The staff made everything so stress-free and pleasant, and it was extremely affordable.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
