“Garden District/Lafayette Cemetery Walking Tour”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Our group had an OUTSTANDING Garden District/Lafayette Cemetery walking tour. People have not stopped talking about how this tour was absolutely "over the top", exceeding all expectations, and was one of the highlights of our long Columbus Day weekend in New Orleans. Frank Currie was extraordinary, and he got rave reviews for his great knowledge of history, architecture, culture, New Orleans lore, and a bit of "trivia"!

“French Quarter”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

The French Quarter walking tour was great! You get to know about the History of New Orleans, history of some buildings, names of streets...and you get very good tips on where to go for a good traditional lunch or dinner or to get local NOLA beers/drinks in bars/pubs with a great ambiance, which is quite different and frankly better than what you can get on Bourbon Street. It's $20. So if you want to fully enjoy New Orleans, I really recommend to do the tour on the first day of your trip, don't wait the last day!

“Great tour, knowledgeable guide”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

My friend and I were down for the weekend and decided to do the Haunted Tour as it was on Groupon. Definitely worth the time and money! Our guide, Rebecca, was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the tour. We got a rich history of the FQ and skeptics definitely were challenged in their skepticism! Great time, definitely try to fit this in. Drinks are also allowed during the tour :-)

“Don't miss the Garden District!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Had a tour with James of the Garden District. He was extremely knowledgable of the history of the cemetary, the local mansions, and New Orleans. It gave me a new understanding of the people, customs and geography of NOLA. Even as we drove to the airport, with cemetaries on each side of the highway his words came back 'that's the dead center of town'. One word of advice, there is one bathroom in the Garden District bookstore building so stand in line early.

“French quarter”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

A very good walking tour to get an overview of the quarter and some no history. Provides a good idea of where you might want to go when you have free time later on
