Lee was a PHENOMENAL tour guide! We started on-time and walked through the fabulous Garden District while learning about the area's history as well as different types of architecture. Lee was funny and informative and brought an amazing energy to the tour. I also personally appreciated how cognizant he was to the area as well, making sure that as visitors, we respected the people and flora of the community. I highly recommend this well-paced walking tour!
