About This Experience

Enjoy a walk through New Orleans’ elegant Garden District, once part of the plantation owned by Bienville, the founder of New Orleans. Visit the “American” section of town that was built to rival the architectural splendor of the Creoles’ French Quarter. The homes of former Kings and Queens of Mardi Gras are located here, as well as the home of the premier family of football - the Mannings. Visit Lafayette Cemetery, one of our Cities of the Dead, and learn about our unusual above-ground burial system

This was truly a great day. The walking tour of the Garden District was a great historical outing. The walking is not overwhelming and we got to tour a beautiful home along the way. Our guide was knowledgeable and insightful. Well worth the price.

Marcia (a New Orleans native) was our tour guide and she gave an excellent tour of the Garden District. She is a wealth of New Orleans/Garden District information and history. You can do your own "self-guided" walking tour, but you can't possibly fully appreciate the Garden District without its rich history. I highly recommend that if you are truly interested in the Garden District, take this walking tour with Marcia. It is people like Marcia that can help you appreciate the history New Orleans.

My wife and I took the walking tour of the Garden District with Robi as our tour guide. He knows New Orleans and his insights & stories made the tour very informative. We were very glad we took the tour. Give that guy a cookie!
