My only recommendation for New Orleans visitors....SCHEDULE A TOUR, it will make the rest of your time in New Orleans that much more special. My wife and I were happy to find out that the tours are available again after the opening of the city during the weekend of October 17, 2020. Our tour guide Renee did a fantastic job and was very knowledgeable and excited to share cool facts about the history of New Orleans. It certainly enhanced our New Orleans experience by offering a sense of appreciation for all that shaped the city and their culture. Highly recommend!!

I loved the architecture and the explanations of the details as to why the houses were built the way they were. I really learned quite a bit of history, architecture and where the celebrities lived. James was an excellent tour guide and let us ask all sorts of questions and provided us with insights into New Orleans high-society as well as cemetery planning and a bit into the Voodoo religion. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with James!

Josh was our tour guide. He was amazing. His expertise and mannerisms were excellent. He truly made our tour very special. He was so personable. The Garden District has so much history and architectural beauty. Josh’s knowledge and love of New Orleans’ history truly added to our experience. The tour could not have been any better. Thank you Josh for a lovely morning.

Did the walking tour through the garden district the day we arrived in New Orleans. Josh was a great guide, and blended early history of the city, architectural observation, and local color. Homes are beautiful, and the neighborhood is much quieter and more serene than the French quarter. Highly recommend.

Thank you for taking the time to leave this great review and highlight something every visitor to New Orleans should know - there is a beautiful, serene, lush and elegant neighborhood in Uptown New Orleans that is just as full of history, culture, and stories as the more well-known ones! I am so happy that you chose Lucky Bean to help you get to know New Orleans and I hope you will return - the amazing Josh does French Quarter tours, too! Libby
