“Street Car rocks”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We have been to visit new orleans many times. We always make time to ride the St Charles Ave street car to people watch and see the homes along St Charles and S. Carrollton. We got off to walk around Audubon Park and have a drink at the bar in the Columns Hotel. Very enjoyable.

“Very Nice Homes - But Not The Only Ones”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Took a self guided walking tour through the Garden District. Some very well preserved historic homes and some supposedly occupied by movie stars. Would have liked to dine at Commanders Palace, but the dress code turned us off (who wants to dress up to do a walking tour?)

Enjoyed taking a ride on the street car to the end of the line much more.

Took a tour with Matt from Magic Tours. Very knowledgable and nice young man. Drop the $20 and take the tour - you will not regret it!

“Beautiful Area, worth a visit”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

We took a organized tour of the Garden District and the cemetary. The tour was about 2 hours and included a lot of history about the area and the homes. The cemetary tour was also informatative. We had considered just walking around the area alone but are glad we did the tour as we would not have learned about the area.
