Val led us on an excellent walking tour through the Garden District after briefly stopping at the Lafayette Cemetery no. 1 and giving us many interesting facts. It is a bonus that he also happens to live in the district and has actually toured many of the homes we walked by. It was a lovely way to spend a few hours as we learned about the history of the area as well as the city.

This tour around the beautiful Garden District was a delight to the eyes and educational. The pace was manageable and allowed plenty of opportunity to ask questions and take photos. The streets and pavements are often very uneven so care needs to be taken especially if you have any disability. The guide added lots of local history and anecdotes which made the tour memorable.

Tour guide was passionate and well informed, very entertaining and I could see the love they have for the city. Beautiful locations and the real spooky parts are the reminders of truly violent history. They did not shy from the brutality of the past, and this contrasted with the respect for the dead and tragedy was beautiful.

Guide very knowledgeable about New Orleans history and shared how it is to live in that area. The cemetery being closed was a little disappointing but our guide took time to discuss history and show us what he could through the fence.

Sean Bird was amazing. The vast knowledge he had on this city was pretty impressive. I learned a lot on this tour. Definitely recommend this tour if you’ve never been to New Orleans. Cory our driver was great as well.
