Overview

You're invited to take a leisurely stroll through the stunning Garden District of New Orleans. See the stomping grounds of authors, poets, movie stars, artists, and sports legends such as Anne Rice, John Goodman, and Archie Manning.

Learn the deep and rich history of the area and how it fits into the overall story of New Orleans including the jealousy and mistrust that led to the 'new money' of the 'garish' Americans trying to show up the splendor and glory of the 'old money' Europeans on the other side of town.

Great time on tour with our high energy tour guide. She was patient with my friend and I as we were always trailing behind taking too many pictures and just being in awe of some of the homes.

Erin was amazing!! My husband and I were the only 2 on the tour and she treated us royally, didn't cut any corners because she didn't have a large group. Her knowledge and personal insights were fantastic. We learned SO much and would recommend it to everyone. It is worth the time
