I am so glad that we took the time to visit this house. We took the the last tour of the day on a Saturday in December. There had been a large tour before us, but my husband and I were the only ones for our tour. The tour guide was amazing. We were worried that he may be annoyed... More

Tours are given on the hour and there is not a reservations desk. You simply go up to the door on the hour and ring the bell. You settle up on the cost of your tour when the tour guide answers the door. We were early and sat on the porch and just enjoyed the view. This tour focuses more... More

My husband and I had purchased a half price deal on Groupon for the BK house because I had heard that it was decorated for the holidays. I wasn't expecting too much as the house tour is not really my kind of thing. Our tour guide actually lives on grounds and his enthusiasm for the house was quite contagious. The... More

I enjoyed the tour so much I bought the crescent carnival and dinner at Antoine. The tour guild gives away some select out of print book club books by Keyes. I misplace my copy of the language of the fanatic the French bistro around the corner.

For a $10 fee we had a full tour of this historic home in the heart of the French Quarter. The architecture is classic and the furnishings historically accurate. Fun to see how the house grew on a small lot into a large home. Tour guide lives o the property and truly loves the history he shares. Don't miss the... More

We had a very nice tour of this wonderful house. We did not feel rushed like on so many tours and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about all aspects of the home. It's well worth the $ 10.00 fee (which you pay at the end of the tour).

Be aware that the Beauregard-Keyes House is closed all Thanksgiving weekend including Saturday. Their phone recording doesn't say this.nor the website. The gardens look pretty from outside the gate. Guess I'll use the groupon the next time I'm in town.

Only four of us were on the tour. The guide took us on a 55minute tour of this lovely, historical home. We learned about General Beauregard. We then learned about Mrs Keyes, her career, her collections and her family. We were even able take home a book written by her.

General Beauregard had little to do with this fabulous home which came to be owned by novelist Frances Parkinson Keyes. We had what was effectively a private tour as we were the only 2 people on the 2PM tour. Our guide was a very pleasant chap who was very knowledgeable of the house, its history and especially the author. He... More
