per traveler Price is $25

Spend time immersed in the beauty and grace of the old-world Garden District. Travel back in time as you stroll the sweet, oak-lined streets, marvel at immaculate antebellum mansions, and visit the third-oldest cemetery in New Orleans.

Meet your guide in the heart of the Garden District and set off along charming Prytania Street. As you pass ornate mansions with iron balconies adorned with ferns, listen to your guide share stories of the wealthy Yankees who first settled in the area in the 1840s. Let your imagine run wild with visions of ladies in Victorian dresses fanning themselves and drinking mint juleps on their porches.

Your journey continues with stops to see historic landmarks, breathtaking architecture, and the mansions of NOLA-loving celebrities. Witness the timeless elegance of the Women's Opera Guild Home and visit the spot where Confederacy President Jefferson Davis took his last breath. Glimpse the Swiss-style home of Sandra Bullock and the magnificent mansion used in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."

From here, journey into Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, New Orlean's most picturesque cemetery. Weave your way around the weathered above-ground tombs as you learn about the devastation of the 1853 yellow fever epidemic. The eerie atmosphere gets more palpable by the minute as you meander your way among mausoleums featured in supernatural tales like "Interview with a Vampire" and "American Horror Story: Coven."
