A friend and I scheduled an early friday morning tour on short notice. Small group. Engaging, informative local guide, very proud of her city's unique history. An enchanting 3 hour walk that explained the district's history, notable residents. Highly recommended.

We took the tour on Jan 3, 2022, an exceptionally cold day. The tour was great with our tour guide Josh (Joos Verrycken) being very knowledgeable, and detail oriented about the different architectures and history of the houses, and the cemetery that we explored. We really enjoyed and learned a lot, and would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to learn about the history, architecture of the Garden district and New Orleans.

Josh was a very knowledgeable and skilled guide. He researches the architecture and history in detailed. You will learn so much about the details of the houses which reflect time period and history. Josh takes you back to the 1832 and onwards. Best walking tour we took in New Orleans!

Josh was an engaging, amazing guide, we had a great time visiting the garden district with him. The tour was filed with historical information and Josh was always ready to answer any additional questions, from the haunted houses to the history of the founding of New Orleans and the people who built / owned those beautiful houses. His degree in history definitely helped! We recommend!
