Home to historic mansions, hauntingly beautiful cemeteries and giant oak trees, this district is the romance of New Orleans. During walks between stops, hear about culture, traditions, architecture and have history fun! (PLEASE NOTE: currently, the cemetery is closed for repairs- we'll still be able to see into the cemetery and discuss the history. I supplement the walking tour to see some of the mansions and historic homes the Garden District is known for). Then it's on to the food at 3 stops- a neighborhood favorite for a taste of our Italian-Creole roots, hear Cajun history through sausage and finish with the Creole history of chicory over cafe au lait and filled beignets! All curated food, cocktails/beer, taxes & tip are included in your ticket so you can sit back and relax! Will accommodate allergies/dietary restrictions if told in advance. Menu & food stops are subject to availability. Other things to note: Tour is all weather, wear comfy walking shoes & bring a face mask.

Before becoming part of New Orleans, New Orleans Garden District was once Lafayette. Boulevards flanked with trees make the Garden District a seductive choice for a leisurely stroll. Many years of slave labour have resulted in the resplendent beauty that you’ll see today in the Garden District; magnificent homes built for cotton kings nestled on oak-shaded streets dotted with colourful magnolias. Huge historic mansions mingle with single-story cottages and pretty gardens on St. Charles Avenue and Lafayette Cemetery is filled with 19th-century tombs. Your guide will take you through the area’s history and links with the cotton trade with interesting tales of previous residents including famous athletes, literary stars and film icons. You’ll pass by boutiques and antique shops interrupted only by local cafés and fine-dining restaurants. Your tour ends with a refreshing drink at a local bar where your guide will recommend the best places to shop and eat.
