My wife and I came, due to the civil war history. Not only were their great historical pieces dating to that time, the history, and tour guide presentation, of Frances Parkinson Keyes the author was fantastic. At the end of the tour, we were happily surprised by a great gift shop. Travel-wise, walking to the location via streetcar is easiest... More

The reason this tour was so impressive can mostly be attributed to the wonderful guide we had, and I wish I remembered his name. He was informative, funny, and kind. We love home tours and, while NOLA doesn't really have as many to offer as, say, Charleston, I still think this one is worth the time and money (only $10... More

We were walking by the Beauregard-Keyes House when we seen a sign that said tours on the hour so we decided to check it out. This was a great tour and the tour guide was funny and interesting. I would recommend this tour to everyone.

Great tour guide through this home and garden. Not too long and great history. Stop by the gift shop and you may find an autographed copy of the previous home owners books. I purchased "Dinner at Antione's" by Francis Parkinson Keyes.

The tour starts on the hour and is only $10. None of the rooms are roped off and you can actually touch items which makes you feel like a guest and not a paid visitor. Beautiful old home with lots of charm and period furniture. The tour was great and loved the history of the home.

I happened upon the Beauregard-Keyes House on Groupon, and purchased the tour for four people due to how close it was to our hotel. We were not disappointed. My father, a history buff loved the Civil was history of the house as well as the modern-day renovations that later owner and author Francis Keyes made to the house. The tour... More

We saw this house as part of our walking tour of the city. It was a very interesting tour of the authoresses residence. The history of the house along with its contents make it very special. I would recommend taking the tour especially if you're interested in either the writer or history.
