New Orleans Garden District & Mansion Walking Tour

2.75 Hours

Price Breakdown:


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 shortstop for refreshments is included on our stroll through this beautiful section of New Orleans.

Decent tour. A little suspect about some of the stories that the guide offered. Conflicted with stories from other tour guides and what could be researched. We missed the cemetery as it was closed for repairs.

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.
