This two-hour walking tour, led by a highly trained historian tour guide, concludes with a visit to Lafayette Cemetery #1. Active since 1833, this “City of the Dead” is home to amazing crypts and the setting for some of your favorite film and TV scenes. A trip to New Orleans is not complete without a tour of its most famous Uptown neighborhood. Despite New Orleans’ Caribbean elements, we have a distinctly American aesthetic uptown. The “Downtown Creole” and “Uptown American” split in New Orleans became firmly established in the decades following the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.

It was a great tour, Bob seemed very knowledgable! So glad I decided on the tour versus exploring alone, I really learned so much!

We took a walking tour of the Garden District with Bob Bell and it was one of the best things we did on our trip to New Orleans!! It was a 2 hour guided tour of the Garden District and Lafayette Cemetery. There was a small break to use a bathroom and grab a snack. We ended up having a very small group (just the two of us and one other man) which was great. Bob was extremely knowledgeable (seriously knew everything about everything) and was also a terrific story teller. We loved him!! I would highly recommend this tour. Great price for a great tour.


*We are 25 year olds - this tour is for people of all ages!

My daughter (17) and I took both the Garden & Cemetery and the walking Haunted tour. This was my fifth trip and her first. I was very impressed! This company hires exceptionally well educated and locally knowledgeable guides. John is a local musician and former Tulane professor. Graham received his graduate degree in New Orleans history from the University of New Orleans. We had a great time, learned a lot and were encouraged to ask questions. Both guides genuinely enjoy their jobs and love this city; this makes a big difference in the quality and fun of the tours. Highly recommended!!

New Orleans was on my wife's "bucket list" and we went on 10 tours in 6 days and 4 of them were offered by Livery. ALL four were awesome!! We were impressed with the fun, exciting, AND knowledgeable tour guides! Bob was great on the Garden District tour! The swamp tour was my personal highlight, the smaller boat is the way to go, a much more personable feeling to the trip, well worth the few dollar additional cost. Thank you Livery for helping put a big wide smile on my wife's face that hasn't left yet....and I don't think ever will:)!!

Great tour. Highly recommend.


Did the garden district and cemetery walking tour. Loved it. Guide, Erika was super knowledgable. With her background in art history and preservation she had so much to say about the beautiful houses and tombs.
