What you can expect

Learn about the cultural splits that inspired Uptown expansion as you tour America’s best collection of Antebellum mansions and 19th century architecture. From 1850s Greek Revival to 1870s Italianates to 1890s Queen Annes, the Garden District is composed of exquisite homes designed by some of the city’s most famed architects, oak-lined streets, and intricately manicured gardens. See the homes of former celebrity and athlete residents, as well as those that call it home today.

This two-hour walking tour, led by a highly trained historian tour guide, concludes with a visit to Lafayette Cemetery #1. Active since 1833, this “City of the Dead” is home to amazing crypts and the setting for some of your favourite film and TV scenes. A trip to New Orleans is not complete without a tour of its most famous Uptown area. Despite New Orleans’ Caribbean elements, we have a distinctly American aesthetic uptown. The “City centre Creole” and “Uptown American” split in New Orleans became firmly established in the decades following the Louisiana Purchase of 1803.
