It's great to read up on the history of the French Quarter and to look at the historical buildings, but to get a highly informative tour of an original house, adds to the New Orleans experience. Our tour guide was very passionate and knowledgeable about early life in N.O. Worthy of a visit in this local area.

The tour of this house was very infomitive on the type of American style home in the middle of the French Quarter. The tour of the house, the dependency, slave quarters where the work was done by the slaves, an actual slave quarter and the only existing stables in the French Quarte were led by a very friendly and knowledgeable...

VERY knowledgeable staff will answer all your questions, even if they have to look up the info. Great artwork and old documents, with relics and artifacts from the early days of Nawlins. Well worth the time, if you have any interest in history, and why wouldn't you?

Michael was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining as he presented history of the Gallier family and house in which the family resided in the French Quarter in the mid 19th century.

I love seeing the insides of the famed French Quarter homes. The court yard is beautiful. Being from the north, seeing the kitchen separate from the main home is interesting. Our docent was very informative and described what the area was like when the house was built.

This is an early 1800's house in New Orleans. The docent we had was passionate about the house, was well informed, and answered our many questions.Many of the furnishings are original to the house, and that makes it even more special.

Our guide Peter had an encyclopedic knowledge of New Orleans architecture and history. We enjoyed his insights. The house is remarkably well preserved and the history was fascinating. Highly recommend.

Although I had been to New Orleans many times, I was not aware of this place until one of the staff at the Olivier House Hotel, which is another historic building, recommended it to me. I'm glad they did because I very mich enjoyed it. Touring historic homes is not for everyone, but if you like history or just want... More

We went on a Thursday so we could witness the cooking demonstration at noon. Came away with a recipe that I must try when I return home. Our guide, Savannah, was knowledgeable and well informed. Fun to step inside a Creole home and learn about their lives, just steps away from the more well known Bourbon Street area.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
