Garden District and Cemetery Walking Tour
From US$27.00
Wander New Orleans’ Garden District, one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, on this walking tour. Stroll down oak-lined avenues boasting manicured landscaping, along with historical Southern buildings and Victorian homes and mansions. Plus, visit the district’s Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, featuring above-ground tombs that have appeared in several major films.
What to Expect
Meet your guide at least 15 minutes before your scheduled tour at First Street and St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans’ popular Garden District to begin your walking tour.
While strolling the oak tree-lined streets, learn about the architectural styles of the stately mansions and homes such as the Briggs-Staub House, Robinson House, and Toby-Westfeldt House from your guide. In addition to visiting historic sites, catch a glimpse of the houses of some celebrities who call New Orleans home.

There were only 6 of us plus the guide in our tour. And I don't recall any comments about ghosts although there were some stories attached to some of the houses.
