Although we did not get to visit the Cemetery due to ongoing renovation, David Reichard, our guide provided an overview of the cemetery and took us on a guided tour of the various mansions and landmarks in the Garden District pointing out historical homes and homes of notables. David is an exceptional story teller with superb communications skills. We enjoyed the tour immensely.

Garden District & Lafayette Cemetery Tour

This was more a walking history tour. Needed microphone. Should have texted people that cemetery had closed. Not really an up-close tour of gardens! Guide did not ask us if we had questions we had to interject to ask questions. Was not accommodating. Some side walks very unsafe!
A lovely 2 hours!

My family and I had a wonderful time with Nita, our delightful guide. Nita toured us through the lovely Garden District and regaled us with stories and history of New Orleans. The tour through the cemetery was fascinating. This is a great way to get introduced to the area. Thank you, Nita!
Loved this tour!

I can't remember our tour guide's name, but I believe she said she was a retired professor of anthropology. And boy , she was a absolute wealth of knowledge about virtually everything concerning the history of New Orleans, from its settlement, cultural diversity, the various gorgeous architectural displays , to the unique burial rituals. She even added a slight route detour to include viewing my favorite author's previous home, which made my day! This tour is an absolute must, especiallly if you are a history buff like my husband. A very enjoyable experience!
Interesting and Informative
