Visão geral

Experimente o melhor do opulento Garden District de Nova Orleans no único passeio que o levará para dentro de uma mansão no Garden District. Nesta excursão a pé de 3 horas, maravilhe-se com as enormes mansões antebellum, conheça alguns dos famosos residentes do distrito, incluindo Anne Rice e Sandra Bullock, e visite as casas usadas nos filmes Entrevista com um vampiro e Drácula 2000. Passeie pelo macabro acima - Túmulos no cemitério de Lafayette, um dos mais importantes "Cidades dos Mortos" da cidade.
  • Passeio a pé pelo opulento Garden District em Nova Orleans
  • Visite o interior do Opera Guild Home
  • Veja exemplos bem preservados do renascimento grego e da arquitetura italianizada, incluindo as casas de Anne Rice e Sandra Bullock
  • Veja onde o presidente confederado Jefferson Davis faleceu
  • Visite o Cemitério de Lafayette, um dos cemitérios acima do solo de Nova Orleans
  • Parada para refrescos na Magazine PoBoy Shop
  • Transporte de ida e volta em ônibus do French Quarter incluído
Embarque no seu ônibus matinal no French Quarter e aproveite para assistir a cidade acordar enquanto você viaja para o vizinho Garden District. Esta área, que agora possui algumas das mansões antebellum mais esplêndidas e preservadas no sul, já foi ocupada por várias plantações.
Ao passear pelas ruas bem cuidadas e admirar fachadas coloridas e cercas de ferro fundido, aprenda como a área foi lentamente ocupada por americanos ricos no século XIX que buscavam distinção da população francesa no French Quarter. Seu guia complementará a espetacular paisagem urbana com lendas dos residentes passados e presentes do Garden District, de Jefferson Davis - o 'Primeiro e Único Presidente dos Estados Confederados da América' - à autora local Anne Rice, ao ator John Goodman e ao famoso futebol jogador Archie Manning. Antes de sair do Garden District, faça um passeio pelo interior do Opera Guild Home, uma casa distinta da época da Guerra Civil, completa com decoração de época.
A parte final do seu passeio a pé é o Lafayette Cemetery, um dos mais antigos sobreviventes - e ainda em funcionamento - "cidades dos mortos" de Nova Orleans. Abrangendo apenas um quarteirão, este misterioso local abriga mais de 7.000 pessoas em tumbas e mausoléus. Ouça sobre o distintivo sistema funerário acima do solo e alguns dos famosos enterrados do cemitério - tanto factuais quanto fictícios.
Tire algumas fotos e desfrute de refrescos de cortesia na Magazine PoBoy Shop antes de retornar de ônibus para o seu ponto de partida no French Quarter.

Daniel was a great tour guide and we got a little extra by being able to tour one of the mansions. He was very well educated on the history of the Garden District. I would highly recommend this tour!

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?
