“Good tour & inexpensive”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Took this tour in May and it was something we had found on groupon (always a good value for travelers!). The tours start on the hour and the front door will be locked until it's time for the next tour and you will have to wait on the front porch- so prepare yourself for that if you don't enjoy being in the sun.

The tour was lively and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and seemed like she was really enjoying taking us through the house. Did not expect the courtyard off the back of the house, but then again this is very common in New Orleans, very beautiful. And there was a guesthouse off the back that the former owner lived in in her later years. Lots of history & very inexpensive. Would definitely suggest!

“History in the Quarter”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

If history is your thing, the Beauregard-Keyes House will definitely deserve a visit! Built in 1826, this is one of the best known historic homes in all of New Orleans... and it is easy to see why.

Located in the lovely French Quarter, tours are conducted on the hour, and a wonderful peek into the 19th century will await. The house is recognized for many things, but the most acknowledged is that it was once the residence of the famous chess player, Paul Morphy.

This is a nice example of a New Orleans home. Our tour guide was quite a character which made for some interesting moments in our four person tour. He was knowledgable on the area and gave us some good restaurant tips. Anyway, the house itself has some nice things in it and is beautifully decorated. There is a piano they will let guests play, which is rare. This is literally across the street from the Old Ursuline Convent and we did them together.

“pleasant hour”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

The house is open for tours on the hour, just turn up and bang on the hour the guide will come to the front door. Pleasant hour spent learning of the history of the house. Interesting place!
