The only reason I did not give this 5 stars is because it was too short. Paige was fantastic, she really knew her stuff. We could have gone on for another hour.

I think it is adequate to just drive through the garden district and get some history from the hop on hop off tour. Nice homes and a fair amount of restaurants but nothing special. Worth a quick drive through but not a destination in and...More
