This was our second trip here, and once again we just loved it. It’s such a beautiful house in such good condition, and the history of New Orleans at that time is told extremely well by the staff there. Our guide was just terrific!

Fact-based presentation of two wealthy families and the preserved home they kept in the Quarter. A great glimpse into their lives. Was also a perfectly timed escape from the rain.

On-the-hour tours showcase the house and back courtyard. Kitchen demonstrations on Thursdays would be nicer if you could sample the food.

French Quarter

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

It's under 16.00 per person (15-something). It's a really good tour and gives you so much historical details about the.e house, the family, the era, and about New Orleans. I highly recommend this one.

Not when I went, but you are free to ask the guide questions. We were the only ones on our tour, so it felt more custom to our individual interests. I'd email them to see if you could focus on her in your tour.
