Garden District Tour
Time & Location
About the Event
Let our experienced guide take your group on a driving tour of one of New Orleans' most exclusive neighborhoods, the Garden District. Known for its tapestry of architectural styles and lavish gardens, this stately neighborhood is considered one of the best-preserved collections of historic mansions in the Southern United States. Dating back to 1832, this neighborhood was originally developed by wealthy Americans flooding the area after the Louisiana Purchase, eschewing the French Creole gentry of the French Quarter.
Experience the splendor of the live oak tree-lined "American sector" of town and examine lush gardens and exquisite examples of architectural styles including Greek Revival, Italianate, Gothic, Georgian, Swiss Chalet, Queen Anne and more.
The tour includes a stop at the historic Elms Mansion, a stunning example of Italianate style architecture built in 1869, complemented with elegant period furnishings and surrounded by lovely gardens and patios.
