“Katrina took us on a great tour of the Garden District. She described the differences in architectural styles in a way that was very understandable and engaging. The houses she showed us were fabulous and all within a few blocks of each other, and often were adjacent. She was also very knowledgeable regarding Lafayette Cemetary, and the buriel processes used by families.”
“Katrina was a great guide making us see both highlights and the hidden spots we would have missed, She answered patiently and energetically every question we asked, We really advise you to take these tours to have a better understanding of the city. “
