Our guide, Elizabeth Broussard, did an excellent job. She was very energetic and knew the information well. I'd definitely recommend this tour. We used the info we learned from the tour, like names of drinks to try, and bars and museums to visit, during the rest of our stay.

If I could give a rating higher than 5 I would because our tour was fantastic! David was so informative and passionate about New Orleans, its history and its food. He gave us the best options where to eat ranging from cheap eats through to the more pricey fare and really made us feel like we were locals. This is... More

My husband and I took a walking tour of the Fauborg Marigny area. Teri was our guide and she was great - informative, personable, and animated. This tour focused quite a bit on the different architectural structures of the varying people who settled that neighborhood and Teri provided a lot of historical background. We had never heard of FTBF but... More

This was a very interesting tour of a very interesting neighborhood. I loved seeing the examples of the classic New Orleans-style houses including the shotgun shack. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable, and even showed us her favorite places on Frenchman Street to eat and listen to music. I'll have to check them out when I come back... More

Awesome tour. Very informational and entertaining. Robbie kept my attention which could be very hard to do and I loved how he incorporated the entire group and gave is roles as if we were back in the 1700's.

I can't say enough about this company and have sent many friends to them when they visit New Orleans. The self guided tour was spot on and helpful in organizing the footsteps of the Hurricane. It basically sends you to different sites in order of your tour and the addresses are 100% accurate. Last time I was in N. O.... More

Staying in Garden District

Neighborhood Profile
Garden District
Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
