FRENCH QUARTER & GARDEN DISTRICT- UPRIVER EXCURSION

French Quarter & Upriver neighborhoods - French Quarter, Garden District, Lafayette Cemetery & St. Charles Avenue

3.5 hours $450 up to six people

We begin in the French Quarter, the most emblematic New Orleans neighborhood. We'll discuss geography, architecture and the folks that made our fabled city in the swamp. Next we’ll head upriver to the Garden District. As we proceed through the oak-lined streets we will take in the grandeur of historic mansions and gardens and discuss the political landscape that gave birth to the Garden District. Lafayette Cemetery, the most beautiful of New Orleans’ above ground “cities of the dead”, is nestled right in this charming neighborhood. As we go through the special atmosphere of the cemetery, we will discuss the unique burial traditions of the Crescent City. We'll have transportation, but some walking, in areas like the Jackson Square & the cemetery, is ideal. This excursion features the highlights of the French Quarter and uptown neighborhoods.
