Garden Quarter Combo Tour
We begin with a ride to the banks of the Mississippi River learning how it shaped our landscape and where the first Europeans landed and founded our city. We then weave our way through the original 1718 New Orleans visiting the oldest and most historical landmarks, telling the tale of our city's early beginnings.
With a rich understanding of our city's early history, we'll venture onward to explore the “American” side of New Orleans where we'll learn about Southern American life pre and post Civil War. As we roll through the Garden District you’ll discover the remarkable stories behind the Americans of the 19th century who built large, opulent mansions that have captivated visitors for nearly two centuries. The Garden District has been featured in countless movie and film projects and has attracted many celebrities to live in the area.
We will stroll through our oldest city-owned above-ground cemetery to learn about the unique way we inter our loved ones. Our last stop before heading back to the shop is passing through the Irish Channel learning how New Orleans immigration and foreign contributions made this lavish lifestyle possible.
