Garden District & Mansion Walking Tour
GRAY LINE EXCLUSIVE! Tour the interior of the Opera Guild Home, circa 1865, on the only tour that takes you inside one of the beautiful mansions of the Garden District! Admission & Round-Trip Transportation included.
Visit the “American” section of town that was built to rival the architectural splendor of the Creoles’ French Quarter. This historic district is known for its marvelous examples of Greek Revival and Italianate architecture.
The homes of former Kings and Queens of Mardi Gras are located here, as well as the home of the premier family of football - the Mannings - where Archie lives and Peyton and Eli grew up. Other celebrity residents are actor John Goodman, and the cormer residence of celebrated author Anne Rice and Toby’s Corner, the oldest house in the area (built in 1838).
Lafayette Cemetery, one of our Cities of the Dead, is an example of our unusual above-ground burial system. (Cemetery is closed temporarily for renovations)
Note: Due to the home's historic nature, access is by stairs only.
This is a walking tour on uneven sidewalks and streets, so please wear comfortable shoes! During warmer months, we recommend that you wear lightly colored clothing; caps/hats and umbrellas are also suggested.
Includes guided tour, exclusive home tour (available only to Gray Line guests) and round-trip climate controlled transportation to and from Garden District.
