Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet your guide at a centrally located point to begin your tour.

Wander through this verdant residential area of New Orleans to admire the many beautiful 19th-century antebellum mansions—it's the largest collection of this style of buildings in the world. At one time, this part of the city was taken up by a few plantations. These were later broken up into the separate residential plots you see today.

The streets are lined with Live Oaks, sometimes branching across roads to create lush tunnels between fine examples of quintessentially New Orleanian architectural styles. Look for scrolled cast-iron fences and grand white columns.

Before concluding the tour, visit one of the city's famous above-ground cemeteries, Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, which dates from the 19th century.

Andrew was wonderful and entertaining. Great history bits and debunked some of the more common myths. Lots of local knowledge and a nice walk at a very reasonable pace (6,000 steps over the 2 hrs.) A very enjoyable experience

DJ was an extremely entertaining and knowledgeable guide whose expertise ranged from architecture, NOLA neighborhood history and politics, cemeteries and religion. His enthusiastic and rapid fire presentation seemed to be because he wanted to share as much info as possible into our 2 hour walk. He answered every query. (Also, the Gracious Bakery/starting/dropoff point was gracious enough to allow us to use restroom and had great pastries and coffee.)
