This is the only Garden District tour that includes free transportation from downtown, admission to a private mansion, and a walk through Lafayette Cemetery! Known for its age-old oak trees and celebrity homes, a walking tour of the Garden District is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon in New Orleans. This "American" section of town was built to rival the architectural splendor of the Creoles' French Quarter, and boasts loads of history, stunning architecture, and gardens. View the homes of former Kings and Queens of Mardi Gras, the personal residences of Archie Manning (where Eli and Peyton grew up), Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, and more!

Enjoyed the tour very much

about 4 years ago
The tour was interesting and informative. Our guide was an elderly lady who was very knowledgeable about New Orleans and the people/houses in the neighborhoods we visited. She had plenty of stories to tell. Enjoyed walking through the beautiful tree-lined neighborhoods of the Garden District and seeing the celebrity homes and homes where different movies were filmed. Definitely recommend it.

Loved seeing the beautiful homes and hearing the stories. The pavement was very treacherous in spots.

The scenery was beautiful, and I appreciated the architecture of the area. I didn't get to see the Manning brothers, but the house was gorgeous.
