Passeggerai inoltre attraverso le macabre tombe sopra terra al cimitero Lafayette, una delle più significative "città dei morti" della città.

  • Tour a piedi dell'opulento Garden District di New Orleans
  • Visita l'interno dell'Opera Guild Home
  • Osserva esempi di architettura neogreca e italianeggiante ben conservati, tra cui le case di Anne Rice e Sandra Bullock
  • Guarda dove morì il Presidente degli Stati Confederati d'America, Jefferson Davis
  • Visita il cimitero Lafayette, uno dei cimiteri sopra la terra caratteristico di New Orleans
  • Fai una sosta ristoratrice presso il Magazine PoBoy Shop
  • Trasporto di andata e ritorno in pullman dal Quartiere francese incluso
Sali a bordo del pullman di mattina nel Quartiere francese e goditi il risveglio della città durante il viaggio verso il vicino Garden District. Questa zona, che oggi vanta alcune delle ville dell'anteguerra più splendide e ben conservate del Sud, una volta era occupato da numerose piantagioni.
Passeggia per le strade ben curate e ammira le facciate colorate e le recinzioni di ghisa, scopri come i ricchi americani si sono lentamente appropriati della zona nel XIX secolo creando la voluta separazione dalla popolazione francese nel Quartiere francese. La guida completerà lo spettacolare paesaggio urbano con le leggende del passato e del presente di Garden District e dei residenti attuali, da Jefferson Davis, il "primo e unica presidente Presidente degli Stati Confederati d'America", l'autrice locale Anne Rice, l'attore John Goodman e il famoso giocatore di football Archie Manning. Prima di lasciare Garden District, fai un tour all'interno dell'Opera Guild Home, un'illustre casa dell'epoca della guerra civile, con tanto di arredamento del periodo.
La tappa finale del tour a piedi è il cimitero Lafayette, una delle "città dei morti" più antiche, e ancora operative, rimaste a New Orleans. Distribuito su un unico blocco quadrato, questo misterioso sito ospita più di 7000 persone in tombe e mausolei. Ascolta le informazioni sul caratteristico sistema di sepoltura sopra terra e su alcuni famosi sepolti nel cimitero, sia veri che fittizi.
Scatta alcune foto e goditi le bevande rinfrescanti gratuite al Magazine PoBoy Shop prima di ritornare in pullman al punto di partenza nel Quartiere francese.

The tour was definitely worth every penny. Our tour guide, Daniel, was so friendly and informative. The houses were just gorgeous and the opera guild house was just beautiful inside!

Our guide Mary E. was an exceptionally knowledgeable guide. Due to her life long attachment to the city, she was able to offer many insights into the history Garden District. Grey Line offers the only interior home interior, an added bonus experience to the tour. O’Neill, our driver greeted us with welcomed cold water both prior and at the conclusion of the tour. He transported our group with an insiders expertise. The Garden District Tour is an excellent introduction to New Orleans and a must do!

Tour was lovely. Saw many stately homes, including the ones belonging to well known celebrities. Tour of the old opera house was special. The cemetery tour was enjoyable, albeit hot! Only problems- the street traffic drowned out the guides commentary at times. The guide also didn't watch her flock too well- an elderly, handicapped woman tripped and fell, with the guide completely oblivious to the situation. Thank goodness she wasn't hurt. That being said, this is probably the best of the Garden District tours.

Our guide for the tour, Marcia, was excellent. She was informative, charming, and had a sense of humor. My daughter and I had a limited amount of time in New Orleans. This tour covered exactly what we wanted to see - mansions and a cemetery. Marcia gave us key details about the exterior of the homes we were viewing from the street. I especially enjoyed the interior tour of the home owned by the Opera Guild. Although a brief stop at Lafayette Cemetery, Marcia was able to give more than enough information regarding the history and reasons behind the cemeteries in New Orleans. We were able to get a feel for another area of New Orleans other than the French Quarter. I just wish we had had the time to visit the shops and restaurants in the Garden District. Be certain to wear sturdy shoes as some of the sidewalks on this tour need repair. We were also able to see some other areas of the town such as Irish Lace and the Business District from the bus.

I thought the tour was very good, and I learned many things about New Orleans I was unaware of. The houses are gorgeous, and the one we visited was impressive. The guide was very good but her voice was not strong enough and at times you could miss details if you were a little behind. Maybe the use of whisperers little microphones which are given to the tour participants, and which I have seen used a lot in European tours should be considered in the future?

Had a really great tour guide. Got to see close up from the street the homes in the area along with the history. The Womens Opera House was a real treat to tour.

The Garden District is a MUST SEE! Sandie was charming, sassy and southern.... Very knowledgeable. She loves the City of New Orleans and her love of the city was evident throughout the tour! The tour was well organized and the staff extremely efficient. The walk was delightful. Easy walk just need to watch your step as the sidewalk is rarely even...
