Can't say enough about the knowledge level and expertise of our guide Angie and the overall tour. Walking and talking beats any drive-by tours, and the guides provide very individualized experiences. You'll see gorgeous homes, learn very interesting history and the walk is not overly physically demanding. I especially liked this tour better than other areas/options because it focuses on the less familiar/famous areas of NOLA and.its history.

Information about architecture and the great stories about the residents was excellent. I definitely recommend doing this with Angie. I recommend also that people earmark a full day to spend in the garden district.
