I recently went to New Orleans with my mom and sister in law and we thoroughly enjoyed this tour.Midge was our guide and was full of interesting New Orleans history and explaining the architecture of the mansions.I would highly recommend this tour and would do again if i go back to NO.
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 Midge was excellent, she was full of information about the Garden District. Saw homes we wouldn't haven seen if we hadn't gone on this tour
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!
Beautiful way to enjoy New Orleans in the spring
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
