Beautiful area and we just took streetcar and walked around ourselves - lovely houses, beautiful mansions and easy just to wander through the streets. We got off at washington street and walked down various streets and got back on streetcar at Louisanna Street

Beautiful houses and area! We did a walking tour but enjoyed the quaint shops, beautiful landscape and houses. Watch out of uneven sidewalks but definitely well worth the visit.

Just beautiful and gorgeous homes, mansions and landscaping! We joked of crashing a few parties we saw setting up in the area. Truly something I look forward to every trip to NOLA.

We did a walking tour of the Garden District - the architecture and history are wonderful, and range from antebellum plantation-style houses to highly-ornamental showplaces. If you're an Anne Rice fan, her former home is located here, and she set her novel "The Witching Hour"...More

We used the guide from Frommers and enjoyed our walk and learned about the history of several houses. Make sure to see the shotgun houses, cornstalk fences and the bookstore too. Super easy to get to.

The Garden district contains many historic and beautiful homes. It is great if you want to get away from the busy French Quarter and walk around and take in the old homes.

I had the pleasure of taking a very long walk (several miles) down St Charles Street. The beautiful old homes and over-hanging tree limbs are a sight to behold. If you are not into walking, then take the trolley and you can see the same...More

The tour was OK- the man living in the home owned by the Women's Opera Association was expecially interesting. BUT it was distressing that in all the fawning over the wealthy white people whose homes we were admiring and whose fortunes were being described, never...More

Our tour guide was good and knew her stuff, but unfortunately, it became a tour of what famous person (now) lives where.

Commander’s Palace in the Garden District has free maps in their entry way. They give a walking route to take and have a brief summary of the important addresses. It was very good.
