I took the tour of this stunning home on 4/5 and am so glad I did. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and presented the tour with a noticeable love and appreciation of this historic home and the Gallier family.

This is a good guided tour of a more common family in historic Louisiana home. I enjoyed the story of the family that lived there. The guide was very knowledgeable. This is a great contrast to the Hermann-Grima house. Recommend seeing both.

Our tour guide, Lee, gave us loads of information about the history of the home and the families that lived there. A great taste of what it was like to live in New Orleans in the mid 1800’s. Beautifully decorated in period furniture and decor.

Dry, but interesting to history buffs. I learned quite a lot about the War of 1812 and the Battle of New Orleans, the Reconstruction and the treatment of slaves after they were freed. The narratives are highlighted with antique uniforms and weapons from the period....More

If you like touring plantation houses, go see this urban contemporary, to that time. Great historical detail given in a guided tour. Lots of original details remain in the house. Just go!

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
