Yvonne, our tour guide, was a pro. From basic stuff like steering us to shady locations, being aware of the many other walking tours out there, reminding her group to use the restrooms, get drinks, look down and watch our steps on uneven pavement, all the way to a historical review of residential properties, area history and cemeteries. She covered so much information and had a real native's pride in her town. Peppering the phrase 'y'all' throughout her tour, it felt like having a great friend show us around. She really loves what she does - 10 years experience by the time we met her and no signs of slowing down. These are very reasonably priced tours - we also used Lucky Bean for a historical French Quarter walk which was also very good. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Also, with this particular area of New Orleans, you've GOT to have a tour guide otherwise it would just be a meaningless stroll around an old neighborhood.

Libby was amazing!!! She has such great stories and is very knowledgeable about the area including architecture, plants, history, etc. she made that two hour tour seem like 5 min because she was such a great entertainer. Very nice and would love to do another tour with Libby if I come back!

Wow, big ego moment for me! Thank you so much for this review! I LOVE the Garden District and I am looking forward to showing you a few other things about my city when you return. The other guides and I are always learning, exploring, and sharing what we know about this fascinating and ever-changing city, so there will be even more stories when you come back! Libby

We had an amazing experience with our guide, James. He was really informative and entertaining. Learned a lot about the garden district on this tour. Being a local, he was able to give us interesting tidbits throughout the tour which made us become more familiar with the city. Highly recommend getting this guided tour to explore the garden district!

This was a great tour! Our tour guide Renee was fabulous, and we were the only people on the tour! She said that groups are intentionally kept small for these tours, which was a big plus for us. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, and was able to answer every question we had. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone even remotely interested in history or building design (or anyone else, for that matter).

Great review! Thank you so much for taking the time to write it. Renee brings deep local roots, a mountain of knowledge, humor, and professionalism, and Lucky Bean provides a small-group model where she can really shine! Small groups (12 or fewer) means that questions can be asked and answered, interests addressed, and we can adjust the pace and the route to maximize engagement and comfort. I am glad you loved your Garden District tour, and I hope the magic of New Orleans lures you back to walk with us again! Libby

Josh was an excellent tour guide! He’s from Europe so his accent made it feel like a cooler experience. He has a masters in history which also makes him very credible. He kept us at a great pace so that everyone could keep up. He’s a great storyteller! Even with the many many blocks in the Garden District that we didn’t walk, I feel like we did not miss anything because he was able to share so many stories. He was also able to answer all of our questions without hesitation because he is so knowledgeable!

Our guide Josh gave us a great look into the history of the beautiful garden district neighborhood, the city, the people that use to live and are currently living there, the cemetery and also knew answers to all the questions thrown at him. Highly recommend booking a tour with Lucky Bean Tours, especially with Josh as your guide. We liked the tour so much we booked another one with Josh the next day!

Renee was a wonderful tour guide. She was friendly and informative, and she even managed to sneak us "behind the scenes" into a house where some home improvement work was being done. She obviously cares about not only the history of the neighborhood, but its inhabitants as well. The walking part of the tour was not difficult for any members in our party, and Renee made sure to keep us in the shade whenever we stopped. We loved hearing about the history of the area as well as more current facts about today's owners/residents.

We really enjoyed James as our tour guide! He was very entertaining to listen to and had a great knowledge base of the surrounding region. I loved how he even carried a binder of pictures for even more visuals of New Orleans history,etc. We would definitely recommend booking for a great time!

We were guided by James on a Monday morning. It was just the two of us so it was easy to be socially distant and our guide wore a face shield the whole time. James was so full of knowledge on the Garden district and New Orleans history in general. He was also hilarious! He’s got jokes and impressions up his sleeve. This tour truly enriched our time in New Orleans with its history and tidbits from Hollywood. We also felt safe from a covid standpoint. This is a must do!

James is a funny guy! I am so happy that you chose Lucky Bean Tours to show you around, and we all appreciate this glowing review. I like how you said the tour "enriched" your time in New Orleans - that is truly our goal. We want our guests to benefit from what they learn on our tours long after the tour is over. This is the best way to really appreciate a city - when you have a deeper understanding of it. Please come walk with us again - James is working on his new act! Libby

Fantastic tour with Jackie! Started in a little cafe right off the St Charles trolley line - we got there early and had a tasty breakfast. Jackie was very knowledgeable about the district, the homes, architectural aspects and even gave us sale prices and “lore”…. Small group made this very intimate and fun. A definite tour for this neighborhood!
