Excellent tour of an historic home with lots of information about the families that lived there. The guide was personable and very well informed and the tour length of approx. 45 minutes was just right.

I'm hard to please when it comes to historic tours. I've often found I know more than the guide. Happily, not the case here! This was a wonderfully informative, detailed tour of the Hermann-Grima House. My husband and I were the only ones on the...More

Location: in the middle of the French Quarter, next to the Four Points Sheraton Hotel. The house is a great example of the NOLA historic style home. From the front, you can’t tell how large these estates are inside. The main house is over 6,000...More

Hermann-Grima House is amazingly preserved and restored and gives an almost interactive look at how New Orleanians lived in the city's early history. Great experience for all ages, tourist and locals, alike.

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
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

It's under 16.00 per person (15-something). It's a really good tour and gives you so much historical details about the.e house, the family, the era, and about New Orleans. I highly recommend this one.

Not when I went, but you are free to ask the guide questions. We were the only ones on our tour, so it felt more custom to our individual interests. I'd email them to see if you could focus on her in your tour.
