    If you like old Antebellum mansions, this is the place to go see them. Just walk and they are everywhere! Beautiful gardens, and incredible architecture. Well worth taking the time to visit.

    My wife and I visited Preservation Hall for a Sunday afternoon show by the Legacy Band. There were 5 well-experienced musicians playing traditional jazz. All were masters of their craft. The played roughly 45 or 50 minutes, and were fabulous.

    Second time in New Orleans for my bachelor/bachelorette party and some of us decided to do a cemetery tour. It was a hot one per usual but our tour guide Zelda practically made me forget. She liked my sunglasses too. Turns out we had the same hat except I left that one at home. Anyway she was incredible-very entertaining and knowledgeable. She also went a bit overtime so you definitely got your moneys worth. She suggested oyster creole house for oysters instead of Drago’s that we were on our way to-said they were better and boy was she right!! Thanks again for the great tour and food suggestions!!

    For this part of the world, it's quite grand. An imposing building with interesting features. Interior is very French influenced, especially the stained glass. Definitely worth a peek inside,

    An interesting street in the French Quarter. A wide variety of bars, souvenir shops, etc. Somewhat of a typical FQ street.

    This is a good and reasonably thorough house tour, though clearly the house was designed as a setting for the gardens - which is to say that the furnishings are nice a suitably opulent, but not the product of a 'collector' at work. Nevertheless they make a fine impression and my tour guide on a solo tour did a nice job of illuminating the couple and their lives. Marred slightly be a following group whose guide was moving it along too fast (his complaint not mine). Unfortunately you pay for the gardens, and in late April, they really weren't spectacular. On second thought, for the extra $15 (!), I'd probably have skipped it and settled for the allee of oaks leading to the house itself + its forecourt. Others will value this differently.

    Really cool and looks like a space ship. We walked all around it and it’s an incredible structure. Definitely worth a visit.

    I know you’re thinking, visiting a cemetery but the history and the thought of family history is beautiful. Interesting reading about how they worded the headstones unlike today. Take a walk I think you’d find it very gratifying.

    What an experience!! We visited on a Friday evening and it was absolutely chock a block full of people from everywhere it seemed! There was so much going on - music of every genre and a fascinating look at life in the Big Easy. If you dont mind paying the cover charge in a lot of the bars there is something for everyone. However, you can go a little off the beaten track and get more value for money but, it was a fantastic place to be. As they say in New Orleans "Laisser les bon temps rouler!!".

    We arrived in NoLA late (our plane was delayed) and were easily able to reschedule our tour to a later time. Upon arriving, we were the only people taking the tour, making it essentially a private tour. The topics covered were very interesting and the narrative was centred around the enslaved peoples hired by the Hermann and Grima family + comparing and contrasting urban vs plantation enslavement specifically in NoLA. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who is interested in enriching their trip and learning about the foundations of the French Quarter. It was definitely family friendly as well, even though we are two adults
