What To Expect
Go on a tour of some of the best highlights of your visit to the city of New Orleans. Head out and explore through the Garden District and the Lafayette Cemetery along with a local knowledgeable tour guide. This walking tour will be initiated with meetups with your tour guide at the designated meeting point.
First on the itinerary is a visit to what is considered as the world's largest collection of 19th century American Southern-style mansions, the Garden District. Marvel at the spectacular mansions belonging to some of Hollywood's brightest stars such as Sandra Bullock and John Goodman. Hear stories about the history and fun facts of this district as you walk through the expanse of this lush district. Get the thrilling opportunity of walking through the Elms Mansion, a grandiose 1869 Italianate-style mansion complete with an expansive patio and a grand ballroom. An additional 5 dollars will be collected during the tour for the entrance fee at the Elms Mansion.
Next on the itinerary is a tour of the world-famous Lafayette Cemetery No. 1. This cemetery is known for its above-ground cemeteries. Admire the antiquated society tombs that have been constructed to house the former members of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, YMCA, and the New Orleans Home for Incurables. Observe the miniature house-sized family tombs gated with iron fences. See the tombs of some popular people in history through your tour guide. This particular cemetery has also been one of the many shooting locations of various Hollywood Blockbusters that we have been enjoying until today.
