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.

Entertaining and knowledgeable

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.)

Disappointed

Very disappointed that even with 3 confirmed tickets for the 10 am tour, no tour guide showed up. When we called I was told we weren’t down for a 10:00 tour and when I said we had confirmed paid tickets I was told I could trade them in for another tour. That did us no good since we were leaving. No refund so far!

If you are in Nola you must do this tour. Diane was awesome and very knowledgeable. I loved all the stories and history she told us about each house visited. Not to mention learning about the home’s architecture. My favorite was visiting the celebrity homes.
