Garden District Walking Tour

by Haunted History Tours Duration 2h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $25

With its grand antebellum mansions, rattling streetcar, and its centuries-old live oak trees, it's easy to imagine yourself walking through another time in the lavish Garden District. Soak up all the history and faded elegance of the former city of Lafayette on this informative walking tour.

Meet up with your guide across the famed restaurant the Commander's Palace, outside the gates of Lafayette Cemetery No. 1—the oldest of NOLA's city-owned above-ground cemeteries. Hear about the movies filmed at this haunting location, and then set off through the storied streets of the Garden District, a neighborhood built in the 1800s to rival the wealth and beauty on display in the city's more-famous French Quarter.

Admire the distinctly New Orleanian architecture of the district's mansions, noting the tall columns and Victorian details alongside Greek and Gothic Revival estates. Pass by the homes of notable residents like Anne Rive and Nicholas Cage, and stand outside the home where Jefferson Davis—President of the Confederate States—breathed his last.
