Beautiful House- great Tour

House was beautiful but tour by Robert made it unique and interesting. As it was Mrs. Keyes birthday they even had cookies and cupcakes to celebrate. Garden was very pretty.

A hidden gem in the French Quarter, but worth making a destination. A lovely old home with an interesting past. Beautiful garden enhances the tour. Does not take long to go through so easy to fit into your day..

This lovely house has been carefully restored to the time of its most famous inhabitants, a french general and an american writer some 200 years later. A "must see" addition if you are doing tours of homes.

Really enjoyed our tour. Note, the tours begin on the hour. We arrived about 5 minutes late, the tour guide was happy to let us join. The tour lasted about 45 minutes. It's a $10 donation at the end. Beautiful old home with a lot of fascinating history. The gardens are really something to see.

The dolcent was an older gentleman who knew all kinds of historical facts and pointed out many interesting features of the house. Coming from New England, with all kinds of historical buildings, I wasn't sure how interesting it would be, but I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed it. The small garden is a relaxing quiet place to spend... More

One of my favorite things about NOLA is all the history. Many a famous writer, pirate, musician, and scoundrel have called NOLA home. The Beauregard-Keyes house was once home to Francis Scott Keyes, the author. In fact, you receive one of her books as a kind of "parting gift" on the tour. It's very informative, and the gentleman who leads... More

We got here by chance. It was close to where we were staying. We were very glad we found it. The tour guide was lovely and we enjoyed our visit.

Happened to walk by at the top of the hour, when tours start, and we really wanted to see the small, but elegant garden. We were the only customers. We really enjoyed the tour and learned much about this exotic, strange, beautiful city. It was a perfect thing to do after breakfast at Le Croissant d'Or, which is right around... More

I took this tour to get a better understanding of New Orleans History. I am originally from New Orleans. The tour was given by a docent by the name of Ott. Ott was wonderful full of humor and made the historical tour interesting with his side comments. This tour is great both for someone interested in New Orleans history and... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
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.
