Learn about the fascinating history and splendor of the Garden District of New Orleans with a narrated walking tour of this famed neighborhood and tour of a private home. Travel down the renowned St. Charles Avenue, leading the way to the Garden District. During the 19th century, this area was known as the “American Sector”, where English, rather than French, was the primary language. A professional guide will escort you through the residential street and recall stories of how the wealthy American Planters, snubbed by Creole society, spared no expense to build palatial mansion and gardens.
