Enjoy the South's Most Beautiful Neighborhood with a Private Guide
On the Private Garden District, St Charles Avenue, & Cemetery Tour, we will explore an historic cemetery as well as learn about many of the grandiose 1800s mansions throughout the area. The Garden District is one of the most picturesque neighborhoods in America, and we will have a fun, relaxing, and engaging drive and stroll through the streets as we immerse ourselves in the history and architecture of the historic district.
First, I will pick you up at your hotel or other place of convenience. We will drive out of downtown towards an historic cemetery. We will visit either Lafayette #1, Metairie Cemetery, or St Joseph's Cemetery, depending on availability and preference. We will drive down the historic St Charles Avenue to see the 1800s era mansions. Next, we will hop out of the vehicle and walk through the Garden District area between Washington Ave and Jackson Ave. We will stop by stunning historic homes such as Colonel Short's Villa, Toby's Corner, McGehee House, and Buckner Mansion. Additionally, we will check out sites from popular culture including the Manning House, the Anne Rice Home, and the Benjamin Button House.

Ashton's tour provided us with a glimpse into the social fabric of New Orleans - past and present. He is knowledgeable, paced the tour to our interests, and provided the right balance of information in a way that was easy to grasp and remember. We will definitely book a tour with him again!
