I would recommend this tour to anyone. Beautiful tour through a cemetery and the mansions in the Garden District. Even though it was very hot and humid it was worth it. The guide was very knowledgeable.

David-our guide to St Louis Cemetery-FABULOUS! Kept us going in the heat. Interesting factoids at every step. Would recommend it because the tour meets at the Café Beignet- good way to start the day in NoLa with a coffee/beignet/cemetery tour!

Our tour guide was great -- a retired professor from LSU, he spoke from his heart (so to speak) rather than from memorization. He didn't dress up in a silly costume, which I thought was better. He was very informative and we very much enjoyed the tour. The tour far exceeded our expectations.

Great tour! I had been to New Orleans previously and had just walked through the Garden District on my own....no comparison to walking through with such a knowledgeable guide. Frank first took our group on a cemetery tour. He was incredibly informative, a great storyteller and also looked out for his guests who might have been melting in the heat.... More

Our gude was pretty good, but did refer to the fact that we had so many folks on the tour that we couldn't go as fast. We reserved--as recommended--but there were a lot of folks who came in as walk-ons late. I would have preferred a smaller size and seeing more. We toured Lafayette Cemtery No. 1, across from Commanders... More
