Small Group Garden District Stories Walking Tour


Would guests like to stroll one of the most beautiful, historic neighborhoods in America with a knowledgeable friend? We keep our groups under a dozen guests so everyone feels comfortable asking questions as we take in the majestic beauty of the 19th-century mansions and elegant gardens of New Orleans' Garden District. We also visit Lafayette Cemetery #1, established in 1832 and one of the loveliest and most interesting of our above-ground cemeteries. The guide is an excellent storyteller and an expert on New Orleans history and culture. Because our groups are small, we can easily customize the tour to the interests of our guests as we go.
