Educational AND entertaining. Very good opportunity to learn general New Orleans history. Also, provides a great view into everyday life in the French Quarter. Quite impressed with the level of knowledge of the guides. Overall experience A-OK!
The Gallier house is a great window into upper middle-class life in nineteenth century New Orleans. Recommended as a companion tour to the much grander/wealthier Hermann-Grimaldo house. I’m always nervous about historical tours given they are often out of date or whitewash the realities of...More
This is a really interesting mid 19th century home. It was designed and owned by an architect who used it as a type of architectural lab. He tried out ideas here to be sure they worked before incorporating them in other people’s homes. It even...More
I took the tour of this stunning home on 4/5 and am so glad I did. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and presented the tour with a noticeable love and appreciation of this historic home and the Gallier family.
This is a good guided tour of a more common family in historic Louisiana home. I enjoyed the story of the family that lived there. The guide was very knowledgeable. This is a great contrast to the Hermann-Grima house. Recommend seeing both.
Our tour guide, Lee, gave us loads of information about the history of the home and the families that lived there. A great taste of what it was like to live in New Orleans in the mid 1800’s. Beautifully decorated in period furniture and decor.
This was a really good tour of a 19th century house. Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable and able to speak about architecture, history and about the lives of the people living in the house, he answered questions and was very cool when our questions...More
I wrote my review of the Gallier House under the 1850 House thread. So, here, I give the reader a similar statement because these two museums are close enough. An okay attraction. Like my 1850 House review - this attraction is only worth it if...More
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
