Enjoyed the tour very much
about 2 years ago
The tour was interesting and informative. Our guide was an elderly lady who was very knowledgeable about New Orleans and the people/houses in the neighborhoods we visited. She had plenty of stories to tell. Enjoyed walking through the beautiful tree-lined neighborhoods of the Garden District and seeing the celebrity homes and homes where different movies were filmed. Definitely recommend it.

The scenery was beautiful, and I appreciated the architecture of the area. I didn't get to see the Manning brothers, but the house was gorgeous.
