Fantastic tour! Harris was exceptional! I was impressed with his extensive knowledge of historical facts, dates, and little known details of New Orleans and the Garden District. My friend and I agreed this was the best part of our entire NOLA trip. The homes were so beautiful and Harris gave interesting historical details about the architecture and the original owners. At the end of the tour Harris even stayed afterwards to answer additional questions from the group. You can tell he really enjoys his job and his enthusiasm made for such a fun afternoon! 100% recommend this tour! You will not be disappointed.
