This New Orleans Historic Garden District Walking Tour highlights the American settlement and their beautiful homes, gardens, wealth and how life was changed because of their amazing contributions.  This multifaceted tour includes the unique history of our incredible city, culture, and architecture. The Americans early settlements, lavish lifestyles and immense wealth are obvious as we walk through this opulent and super astonishing neighborhood.

Our Tour begins outside of the gates of Lafayette Cemetery #1, as you learn of the basic burial information and customs and discuss why New Orleans cemeteries are so unique (NOTE: PUBLIC ACCESS IS NOT ALLOWED IN THIS CEMETERY) We then walk around the neighborhood where you'll see the architectural styles of the Americans. You will see celebrity homes, perfectly manicured landscapes and movie hotspots as well.  Walk with a local, see it through our eyes!

The tour guide was fantastic! He was knowledgeable, funny and professional. I learned a lot and appreciated his passion for what he does. I wish he could conduct a tour of the French quarter (the one I did today was horrible). I highly recommend this company and this terrific guide.

The tour guide had an encyclopedic knowledge base about the Garden District of New Orleans. His presentation was also super fun and interesting. I can't imagine that anyone could do a better job on this topic than he did.

Great tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and answered all questions well. It was a gorgeous area and it was exciting to learn about the history while being able to view each house. This tour is a must-see for the classic and stunning New Orleans architecture and history!

We had a great time. Our tour guide, Angie, was very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. She gave us a lot of history, information about the houses in the neighborhood, and NOLA traditions. A few pieces of advice would be to wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for walking on uneven and rough sidewalks.
