This was no boring history tour. We chanced upon Carla Boullion in Lafayette Cemetery and loved her tour so much we came back the next day for her Garden District tour. She took us through the gorgeous historical neighborhood and taught us about the architecture, the celebrity homes, and the strange history and folklore of the area. Carla herself is... More

Traveling down these streets under the canopies of graceful magnolia trees reminds me of more genteel times. This area is a beautiful slice of architectural history in the American South

I have never seen so many beautiful older homes so wonderfully kept. We took the trolley through that area, really enjoyed it. Totally worth seeing.

A great separation from downtown and the busy French Quarter. Worth a walking tour and Trolley ride to take in the sites.

It was a pain to get to via street car from French Quarter. The street car was packed and uncomfortable. The experience was a huge let down. I can walk around and look at old houses or even fixed up old houses in my own area. Shopping on Magazine was dilapidated and felt like the streets of Los Angeles. This... More

The main street in the garden district is a fantastic place to get away to for a few hours - it has some really interesting shops and great places to have a bite. Just walking along and admiring the beautiful mansions should be enough of a reason to visit!

My husband and I spent a day exploring the Garden District while visiting New Orleans and truly loved our time spent there. The parks and historic mansions are absolutely lovely, and the Loyola campus is quite beautiful as well. You can take the streetcar down st. charles and see all that the Garden District has to offer. You can also... More

Great place to walk and watch the historic buildings. Take a tour to learn more about the history of the houses. Great restaurants around.

We drove around the Garden District while in NOLA. It had alot of large stately homes but nothing over the top. Being from St Louis it was very similar to what I would see here. Not all that impressed.

One of the most beautiful places in New Orleans. The mansions and their gardens are a real beauty. Definitely do a walking tour of this place. Wear good walking shoes and be alert to all the ups and downs on the sidewalks!
