Experience the best of New Orleans’ opulent Garden District on this approximate 3-hour walking tour. 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’.
Midge was a great Tour guide. She had a very good knowledge of the places we visited!
I recommend you take this tour. such a beautiful area to see. Amazing homes!
This is a great tour. A little more expensive than some of the Garden tours but worth it because you get to go inside a home. Our guide Miss Nancy made this a wonderful experience. She is a New Orleans native and former history teacher. We were also driven in comfort in a new bus!
This tour was excellent. Added bonus to be able to go into one of the homes. We had a great guide Marcia who was informative and really knew her stuff!! Always nice to take a tour with someone who really enjoys what they are doing.
Marcia, our tour guide, was great. We took a bus to the Garden District and we walked and stopped along the way while Marcia gave us the history of the district and told us about individual homes. We could have done this walking tour on our own but would have missed out on hearing all the history that a real tour guide can give. We would highly recommend taking this very informative tour!!!
This has got to be the best tour of the Garden District, Nancy our tour guide was like an extremely well educated southern belle, with awesome inside stories, and so amicable, and Kevin our driver was great... The tour went longer than detailed, which was an added bonus! But it is a must! If you want to know the history behind this great city... Just ask Nancy!
This is probably the best way to see the Garden District. Our guide did an excellent job of explaining the history of the area and the architecture of the buildings. A nice benefit of this tour was being able to go into one of the houses, owned by the Opera Guild. That's the only way you get to se the interior of any of these homes. In addition, she pointed out several celebrity homes which is always interesting. The visit to the cemetery was only about 20 minutes but she provided a very good description of how the above ground burial system works. If we had tried to do thiis on our own we would have learned very little, so the tour was well worth the money and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to see the Garden District.
Daniel our tour guide had so much knowledge, he was amazing. Showed us a totally different side from the French quarter. beautiful mansions and the stories behind them.
Tour guide was great !
Wonderful tour, and a wonderful guide. Mary showed us beautiful homes and provided us with so much information about them, and the beautiful area
Very good tour. Lady guide very knowledgeable on her subject. Lots of walking on uneven surfaces so wear flat comfortable shoes. Would recommend.
