      This is a great way to see the Garden District. It is a 2 hour walking tour so it gives you a taste of the area and the architecture but is not overwhelming. Note - the sidewalks in New Orleans have personality due to the roots of the fabulous trees in the City. Probably not the best choice for folks that are mobility challenged.

      Great Tour with Dylan as our guide

      We had a very enjoyable tour around the Garden District. Dylan our guide was passionate about the area and made it fun and very interesting. His historical knowledge was amazing. It was a shame the council had closed the cemetery but nevertheless Dylan walked us around the outside and gave us lots of interesting facts about it. We would highly recommend this tour , and ask for Dylan
