Experience the best of New Orleans’ opulent Garden District on the only tour that will take you inside a Garden District mansion. On this 3-hour walking tour, you'll marvel at the enormous antebellum mansions, learn about some of the district’s famous residents including Anne Rice and Sandra Bullock, and visit homes used in the films Interview with a Vampire and Dracula 2000. You’ll also wander through the macabre above-ground tombs at Lafayette Cemetery, one of the city’s most significant ‘Cities of the Dead’.
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.
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...
Sandy our guide had such a dry sense of humor that it made the tour so much fun. Ive taken other Garden District tours, but this one actually took a tour of one of the homes. Its a lot of walking, but thats why we picked it, to get up close and personal with this gorgeous area.
A very informative tour guide takes you by bus from the French Quarter to the Garden District for a long walk thru the area including discussion on the types of homes and mansions. You will also visit the cemetary and go into a Southern townhouse mansion. A tour that should not be missed about 2 1/2 hrs...wear comfortable shoes or sneakers
Great tour guide. She was very informative about history of the area as well as the unique geography of this great city. Wish we could have had a day long tour with her as her enthusiasm just made me want to see more of NOLA!
Mary E was an outstanding tour guide! She was very knowledgeable and provided a multitude of interesting facts and Nola history!

Our tour guide Marcia was fantastic you could tell she was very passionate about the architecture in the Garden District. She was great pointing out the differences in the styles used in each House. The tour took us into one of the mansions which was fantastic. Marcia pointed out the houses owned by different celebrities which was fun. It was a rainy day and Marcia offered everyone umbrellas and ponchos. The tour was great and the guide was fantastic. Would recommend to anyone who is visiting New Orleans. Thanks so much
A must do! Daniel was a great guide. Very informative, perfect pace to the tour and a friendly fellow to top it off.
A highlight of our trip.
Great tour to see the Garden District. The guide was great giving lots of history and Hollywood past and present residents.
