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’.
A must do for anyone who loves historical homes. Sandy, our tour guide, made the tour enjoyable with her knowledge of the area and New Orleans.
Learned a lot. Guide was excellent. Beautiful area of the city and worth seeing.
Carol was a very thorough guide and gave us a great tour!
This is a relaxing and very informative tour for those seeking to learn about New Orleans history. The guide Daniel, did an excellent job in his delivery and interesting facts. Actually visited inside one of the mansions and walked past many more with long interesting history. Additionally, there are celebrity homes, cemetery stop, and a mid point coffee stop. Overall, our entire group felt this was time well spent!
The tour guide did an excellent job. She was very informative and entertaining -- even in the rain!
Fantastic tour! We were debating whether to visit the garden district on our own or with a tour, but I'm really glad we did the tour! Our guide, Sheila, was fantastic. She knew all sorts of details and was a wealth of information. For example, when we visited Lafayette Cemetery, we learned a lot of things about individual graves and who they contained such as John Howard Ferguson from Plessy v. Ferguson that gave us an appreciation we would otherwise have lost on our own.
Besides the cemetery, the other highlights included seeing the houses of John Goodman and Sandra Bullock. We also got to go inside one of the older houses and tour around it.
Very informative Guide was excellent
We were in NOLA for a girls' weekend and we made this tour part of it. So happy we did. Saw a lot of historical and famous homes and learned a lot about the burial process. Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable.
