Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We took the streetcar from the French Quarter to the Garden District. Rode it all the way to the end and got to see all of the beautiful mansions decorated for Mardi Gras. Then we got back on and rode the streetcar to Commander's Palace.

    Energetic and fun with great shopping and dining. Some of the top rated restaurants are here (Arnaud's, Galatoire's, Tableau, Brennans ,etc.) with tasty chicory coffee at Cafe du Monde. There are many little fun shops to explore. The beautiful antique shops are impeccably curated with noteworthy pieces. Frenetic, good energy abounds as you bustle through this vibrant part of town. (I recommend Royal and Decatur streets for great shopping and more civility (our cup of tea) and Bourbon Street for hard, HARD partying.) Enjoy y'all!

    Such a beautiful cathedral especially for being the oldest within America. Such a spiritual vibe to light a candle and say a prayer.

    Wow! A true New Orleans experience, the jazz musicians were so talented and the venue is very unique! Spend the money for a front row seat!

    Drove through this area and took some beautiful pictures. I know you can walk around but we found it easier to drive.

    Tour was interesting. We had previously taken the canal st. streetcar to the end to see the large cemeteries. You stroll along on your own. Interesting and we had lots of questions, ie. how they fit so many people in 1 tomb. We took this tour as it is the oldest cemetery and guided, so we would be able to ask questions. Some of our questions were answered, but mostly history/stories on the people buried there. Tour guide rude. Tour 10:45. My son went to restroom at 10:43. Made it back, plenty of time; I understand policy says tours leave on time. I simply said at 10:43, ooh, my son just went to restroom. Response, nasty, was, that's his problem. (wasn't joking btw) I'm rolling along. So that's how it started. How they fit so many in a tomb is fascinating, but I won't spoil it. I did ask how you got to be in the tomb. Did granma/granpa say you could, what if you weren't in your family's good graces, etc. Again, nasty, "family is family". Well not all families get along.....anyway....I stopped asking questions. Glad we took the tour. Was quick and we were able to get the answer we most wondered about. Worth doing.

    I really enjoyed touring this historic home and learning what life was like for enslaved people who lived in New Orleans. The house is luxuriously decorated and the contrast between that and the spartan quarters for the enslaved is stark. There are original implements in the kitchen and scullery and you really see what kind of tools were available. My tour guide was knowledgeable and I learned a lot about New Orleans in the 1830s-50s.

    Old part of NOLA. Long street with pay to park is a must. Walk one hour and walk one hour back. Locals go here. Unique shops.

    We went to daily Mass at this church, tucked into the edge of the French Quarter just on the other side of Canal Street - just across the street from the Roosevelt Hotel. Perfect way to start the day with the 7:30am daily mass during the week.
