Trip Info

Enjoy your exploration of one of America’s most handsome residential neighborhoods and historic cemeteries with a knowledgeable, entertaining historian and raconteur extraordinaire.¬†Your stroll amid New Orleans history in the Garden District might include crape myrtle trees in full bloom, but always the stately arches of our beloved Live Oaks. There is much to admire in the year-round lush, green flora of the Garden District as you and your guests walk along. Consider a morning tour as a prelude to lunch at Commander’s Palace or a late afternoon walk on any day (but never on Sunday) before a fabulous dinner at Commander’s or in any number of delightful restaurants on Magazine Street, most especially our favorites, Lillete or La Petite Grocery.
