“Lovely Courtyard”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

This home is not typical of the Creole architecture in the area. It has had numerous occupants. A tour will give you a view of only a handful of original buildings left in the French Quarter. Located in a quiet part of the Quarter across from the Ursuline Convent, tours are hourly during the 4 days they are open. This location is not so touristy which makes a visit more pleasurable than the T shirt shops by the water.

“History brought to life”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

This is a simple, lovely and personal tour of a home with a very characteristic New Orleans architecture. The telling of the home's and its occupants' history, as conveyed by Mr. Howe, was fascinating and entertaining. He did a wonderful job of bringing the story to life and relating it to the history of the city, the south and even other parts of the country. Definitely a worthwhile hour.

“Good historic tour”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

If you enjoy history and/or house tours, you will like this. The guide was very knowledgeable and interesting. The house is lovely and has an interesting history. It is closed on Sundays and, as we found out, the Saturday before Easter. Tours are on the hour and everything is locked until then, so plan accordingly. We didn't, but it gave us time to grab a beer at Flanagan's Pub :-)

“Great guide”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

If you're not into history, old houses, PGT Beauregard or Frances Parkinson Keyes, then this is not the place for you.
However if you are into any one of those things I would certainly recommend it. A gorgeous home rich with history, and the man who gave the tour was witty and very kind-spirited. I was not at all disappointed!

“History and variety”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

This house had several interesting residents and there were several guides to explain them all. There was how it got built, who got killed, who made it a historical site and the obligatory ghost story.
