We had the privilege of meeting Nikko and having him as our tour guide in the Garden District. It was very impromptu and we just happened to get in on it. He was full of stories and information about history, the houses, people who currently and have owned them in the past, and told some good ghost stories concerning the... More

Take the St. Charles streetcar to the Garden District and stroll around looking at all the beautiful homes. Our hotel had a map for a self-guided tour and there are plenty of mobile apps as well. We enjoyed it so much we decided to do it again with a guide to learn a bit more. It pointed out architectural details,... More

We toured the garden district as part of a city tour. We saw some beautiful old homes steeped in history. New Orleans has a great and interesting historical background.

We took the New Orleans City & Katrina Tour by Tours by Isabelle. The tour was very informative and we got to see it from the comfort of an A/C van!

We stayed at the Garden District B&B (great place to stay) so we really enjoyed the area and all it had to offer. The tour of the district with it's grand housing and local cemetary was great. The district also offers plenty of places to eat.

So much history here. Each house has it's own story. Also visited the public cemetery here along with Commander Place resturant. Watch your step on the sidewalks they are very uneven due to tree roots. Commanders Place requires men to wear business casual. That means no shorts.

There are some beautiful homes in this area. There's a walking tour in the AAA guides which explain some of the homes. You can do a self guided walking tour, but use a guide so you can get info on the homes. The sidewalks are horrible. Suggest you wear running shoes and watch where you're walking. The roots of the...

I just jumped on one of the trolley buses and spent 2hrs riding through this beautiful area. Some magnificent homes and garden areas. A day pass on the trolley buses is $3 so you can jump on and off as often as you wish. Some lovely little cafes and restaurants in this area as well.
