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.

The tour was great and the Garden District was beautiful! Midge was an awesome tour guide and so knowledgeable.
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.
