Head to the Garden District for the full-on New Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions, picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give yourself ample time for admiration at a languidly slow pace befitting such gentile strand of riverside living and to allow you to maximize each opportunity to stop and smell the roses – and whichever other blooms you might come across. While taking it all in, you’d do well to dine at one of the city’s most beloved destinations for regional cuisine. Gourmands from far and wide (and right round the corner) swear the age-old Commander’s Palace is the best restaurant in town – and have been doing so since it opened back in 1880.
We (wife, daughter - 16 year old and I) all loved this tour and the size of the group was perfect - twelve. The smaller group gave us a more personal tour.

Located at 1415 Third Street in the exclusive Garden District, the genteel two-story mansion with a unique curved portico and wraparound galleries was completed in 1867 by New Orleans' most famous architect, Henry Howard, for Robinson, a cotton and tobacco merchant from Lynchburg, Virginia, who...
It’s easy to see why Commander’s Palace is one of the top restaurants in the country. It’s classy and elegant. The food is wonderful and the service is amazing! We had turtle soup, craw fish tails, and creole tostado. We were there at lunch when they have a very special martini deal.
Got off the Charles Street Streetcar, went looking for breakfast and this was the first place we ran across and boy we were glad we did. My wife had the sweet potato waffles and I had the coffee infused pancakes. Both were excellent, as was the coffee. Super nice staff to top it all off.
