What You'll Do
  • Enjoy a free walking tour of the historic Garden District
  • Admire some of the most beautiful mansions in New Orleans
  • Visit LaFayette Cemetery, and hear legends about haunted spirits
See the Garden District of New Orleans on a Free Tours by Foot, and spend 2 hours getting to know one of the city’s most desired neighborhoods. Admire the 19th-century mansions and explore Lafayette Cemetery, one of New Orleans' cities of the dead.
What to Expect
Join Free Tours by Foot on a Garden District Tour and enjoy a stroll along the leafy, magnolia-shaded streets of this elegant neighborhood. You’ll also visit a city of the dead – Lafayette Cemetery Number 1.

The 2-hour walking tour is not just about mansions and manicured gardens, but also about legends, tragedies, epidemics, lost causes, movie stars, celebrity chefs, and haunted spirits.

The Garden District, or Lafayette City, as it was once known, is just a short streetcar ride from the French Quarter, but it feels like a world apart.

Excluded from early 19th-century Creole society, newly arrived Yankees created their own city. The result is one of New Orleans’ most desired neighborhoods and one of the nation’s most beautifully preserved city districts. It’s home to the rich, the famous, the strange, and the dead!

Although this is a free tour, payment for a tour well done is much appreciated.
