The tour guide, Marcia, was wonderful. A wealth of information, anecdotes, and personal charm. The day was hot and humid, but Marcia went out of her way to make our group comfortable. She treated us like her ducklings as we walked around the Garden District. Fun and informative tour.

Great tour! Got to tour The Opera House and find out where the "important " people call home! Perfect for history buffs!

Marcia is very knowledgeable and the tour was great, especially getting to visit the inside of a house.

I was disappointed in this tour. There was a lot of wasted time, and less than a dozen houses discussed. I do not feel that it was worth the price, and will not recommend it to anyone. I took this same tour several years ago, and it was much more informative than it is now.
Reply From Gray Line:
Hello Frank,

We know we have a large base of valued repeat customers like yourself that know they can trust the Gray Line brand the world over, and we’re sorry to hear that on this day, we didn’t deliver the services you’ve come to expect. We'll touch base with our local team in Louisiana to discuss any tour upgrades and improvements that may be possible, and hope that next time you join us we can make up for the experience!

Visit the "American" section of town that was built to rival the architectural splendor of the Creoles’ French Quarter!

Enjoy a walk through New Orleans’ elegant Garden District, once part of the plantation owned by Bienville, the founder of New Orleans. This historic district is known for its marvelous examples of Greek Revival and Italianate architecture. 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 - where Archie lives and Peyton and Eli grew up. View the former residence of celebrated author Anne Rice, as well as the house where Jefferson Davis died in 1889, and Toby’s Corner, the oldest house in the area (built in 1838). Visit Lafayette Cemetery, one of our Cities of the Dead, and learn about our unusual above-ground burial system. (Cemetery is closed on Sundays and some holidays).

A short stop for refreshments is included on our stroll through this beautiful section of New Orleans.
