The Garden District part was fine. There was no cemetery tour since the Lafayette 1 and some others are closed for renovation; so if this is an important part of your tour, then pick something else. Lafayette 2 is open.

Our host, David Higgins, was just fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable about the history culture religion etc., of the area and really helped us understand how voodoo and the local Catholic religion and the different peoples of the area all integrated together and influenced each other. One of the best tours I've had in any City I've traveled to. Highly recommend it.

Booked this walking tour the night before. Dave Roberts was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable about the history of the homes and answered all my questions. We saw several famous people's homes and places movies vere filmed. We also saw random beautiful old homes. The pace was even and was not rushed in any way. I highly recommend this tour and if you get Dave consider that a bonus.
