Very interesting Garden District tour! Sad about not being able to go into the Lafayette Cemetery #1, but not the tour agencies fault. Our guide, Angie, was very knowledgeable, friendly, funny, and a great guide! Loved her enthusiasm and passion for the garden district!

Of course, the Garden District is incredibly gorgeous and my husband and I feel that we are familiar devotees after spending a couple of hours with Angie of Tours by Steven!!! Worth every penny and much more.

Garden District/ Cemetery tour
, Jul 2021
Loved our tour guide , Angie. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The only criticism I would have would be that it was hard to hear on the busy street we were on and due to the description on the website I was disappointed that there was very little about the cemetery. And there was no tour through the cemetery.

Thanks for the great review, Angie is amazing and we are so happy she is on our team and growing with our company! The cemetery is closed and we don't have any control over it, as mentioned in our advertising and booking information, but we definitely will attempt to make it more engaging for sure. It really takes great guests to give us feedback to that we can continue to grow. Please come back for more, we would love to see you again! Thanks again, Steven
Okay but wouldn’t book again

Disappointed about the cemetery being closed and not being able to experience more of that. And thought we would see the AHS Coven house and didn’t, so we went to find it ourselves after the tour.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Thank you for your review! We can’t wait till the cemetery opens up again so that we can take our guests inside and experience up close and personal, the beautiful and antiquated tombs. As we advertise, we do discuss the cemetery and burial customs from the iron gates of the cemetery due to closure that we have no control over. Also, thank you for your feedback on the coven house. Due to the distance and the length of our tour at two hours, it is too far for us to include on our tour experience and that is why we do not advertise that it is part of our route. Please come back and do a private tour with us so we can tailor a tour exactly to your needs and we would love to show you New Orleans your way. Thanks again for taking our tour, please call us so that we can discuss further any of your needs. Thank you, Steven
Angie was the best!
