Explore the lavish and delicious wonders of New Orleans' Garden District.

Home to historic mansions, hauntingly beautiful cemeteries and giant oak trees, this district is the romance of New Orleans. Close to the St. Charles streetcar, we will meet at Lafayette Cemetery to tour one of the oldest cemeteries in New Orleans. See the above-ground tombs New Orleans is known for and learn our unique traditions!

(PLEASE NOTE: The cemetery is currently closed for repairs. During this time, we'll still be able to see into the cemetery and discuss the history. I supplement the walking tour to see some of the mansions and historic homes the Garden District is known for.)

Enjoy a favorite neighborhood eatery for a taste of our Italian and Creole roots. The next stop is Dat Dog for sausages like alligator, crawfish and duck. (Traditional pork and vegan options are available!) We will finish with a Creole dessert and learn the history of chicory over café au lait and filled beignets. You'll have history fun while learning about our lingo, traditions and architecture.

All curated food, cocktails, beer, taxes and tip are included in your ticket so you can sit back and relax! Will accommodate allergies and dietary restrictions if told in advance. Menu above and food stops are subject to availability.

Wow, this was such a great tour. Michelle is so knowledgeable and made this a special day. It is a much better reflection of the real New Orleans than the touristy French Quarter.

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. Michelle really connected with us and taught us useful information. The places she selected for us to eat were fantastic. I wouldn't have eaten some of the items on my own, but I'm really glad she had us try them! Definitely a unique experience and worth the price. Would highly recommend!
