Full description
No trip to New Orleans is complete without a walk round the elegant and historic Garden District. Known as the "American" section of town, it was built in the 1800's to rival the architectural splendor of the French Quarter.

This 2-hour walking tour gets to the heart of the neighborhood, with a start at the gates of the fascinating Lafayette Cemetery. Occupying the entire 1400 block of Washington Avenue, the cemetery is one of the oldest in the city and has been a favorite location for many a New Orleans movie.

Your tour includes visits to several famous homes in the lavish antebellum neighborhood, along with a walk past the home of the vampire chronicler Anne Rice. Throughout you will get a compelling narration by friendly guides, all licensed by city authorities for their depth of knowledge and high standard of service.

Recommended by Travel Channel as a must-do attraction in New Orleans, this tour will uncover some of the city’s most remarkable treasures and give you a unique perspective on this city’s fascinating history.
