I cannot say enough good things about the NOLA Garden District Architecture tour. We're locals and wanted to learn more about the architecture of our city and this did not disappoint. Katrina was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. We also felt totally safe and socially distant the whole time. We'll be booking again!

Postcard handout with different building styles was helpful. Guide Joan does her best imparting as much information as she can (which is alot). Visual aids gave us a good historical and cultural perspective. Joan texted us ahead of the tour so we knew how we were meeting our guide.

Thank you for taking the Garden District Tour with me! I am delighted to hear that you felt our tour was both fun and educational. Architecture doesn't have to be stuffy - the houses are beautiful and they tell the story of the city. It's all here - materials available, climate, aesthetics, building tech... so much can be learned from architecture. Thanks for leaving this fantastic review and we will see you next time!
