A note about this tour
We follow city mandates for face mask requirements, so be sure to bring your mask with you to the tour- we do not provide masks to guests.


Home to historic mansions, hauntingly beautiful cemeteries and giant oak trees, this district is the romance of New Orleans. During walks between stops, hear about culture, traditions, architecture and have history fun! (PLEASE NOTE: currently, the cemetery is closed for repairs- we'll still be able to see into the cemetery and discuss the history. I supplement the walking tour to see some of the mansions and historic homes the Garden District is known for). Then it's on to the food at 3 stops- a neighborhood favorite for a taste of our Italian-Creole roots, hear Cajun history through sausage and finish with the Creole history of chicory over cafe au lait and filled beignets! All curated food, cocktails/beer, taxes & tip are included in your ticket so you can sit back and relax! Will accommodate allergies/dietary restrictions if told in advance. Menu & food stops are subject to availability.
Other things to note: Tour is all weather, wear comfy walking shoes & bring a face mask.

When I asked my grandson what he remembered most about the history of the area, he said he saw Sandra Bullock’s house! Something for everyone.

Highly recommended! The food was amazing, the conversation was great, and we had such an enjoyable time. Definitely will do it again next time I am in New Orleans.

This tour is great if you are interested in trying a few new places to eat in the Garden District and walking around. It is very light on the history portion and more about experiencing the neighborhood. I do think that the description should include the fact that you do spend the majority of the time at sitting at a few eateries waiting for your food.

This trip is not worth $90 per person!!! I wouldn’t pay $5. The guide was late and everything was unprepared, we had to wait for everything in the heat as the 3 places we visited were not ready. For lunch we had hotdogs! We also had to wait a long time to be served and in several of occasions we had to get everything ourselves. No Hotdogs in New Orleans!!!
