    We had a fantastic time with Erika on the Garden District tour! My boyfriend and I ended up having a private tour of sorts since no one else signed up for the same time slot. She was extremely personable, friendly, and knowledgable on everything from architectural styles and

    I would highly recommend the Garden District Architecture tour to anyone with even a slight interest in architecture. Not only will you see many beautiful homes, but you'll walk away having learned about the history and architecture of the place. This tour gave a great survey of

    Thanks for taking the Garden District Tour with New Orleans Architecture Tours! From this review, it is clear that you learned a lot from our tour. One of our goals is to show our guests how to differentiate between different styles (such as Greek Revival and Italianate) so that when they leave New Orleans, they can try to figure out the story of their own hometown. The history comes alive through the buildings! We appreciate the recommendation and hope to show you another neighborhood next time!

    Thank you for taking the Garden District Tour! We love giving tours to visitors - and locals too! I especially love showing our residents their own city because it's fun to tell them new stories about the places they are familiar with. (They end up giving me their own fun stories too!) Thank you for this incredible review!!

    Thank you for taking the Garden District Tour with us! We are glad that you learned a lot about this really magnificent antebellum neighborhood. The houses are beautiful but the real neat thing (of course) is the history of the area and the stories of the people who built these homes and lived in them. Thank you for leaving this excellent review!!

    Katrina is super knowledgeable and didn’t waste a minute of the tour. The route we took was cohesive and full of interesting houses. Can’t wait to come back and take the Tremè tour with her!

    Thanks for taking the Garden District Tour! I am really glad that you enjoyed learning about this antebellum neighborhood. Dating back to the 1830s we have some really great examples of Greek Revival architecture that I love to share with my guests. (We also get to discuss Italianate and Queen Anne as well!) See you next time on the Tremè Tour - Tremè is another interesting neighborhood, that is older than the Garden District and has an excellent variety of houses.
