    We were luckily the only family who had booked in this time slot so we had a private tour. Katrina was very knowledgeable not only of the architecture, but also of Louisiana history. The tour moved at a good pace.

    Washington Ave. and Prytania St. Right in front of the Rink Shopping Center. You don't go into any homes, but Katrina will tell you about other tours that do. She is a great tour guide.

    I wish! Unfortunately, we do not get to go inside, as these are privately owned homes.
