What you'll do

***ALSO CHECK OUT MY OTHER TOURS OF BYWATER AS WELL!*** Home to historic mansions, hauntingly beautiful cemeteries and giant oak trees, this district is the romance of New Orleans. Close to the St. Charles streetcar, we meet at Lafayette Cemetery to tour one of the oldest cemeteries in New Orleans. See the above-ground tombs New Orleans is known for and learn our unique traditions! (*** PLEASE NOTE: currently, the cemetery is closed for repairs- during this time, we'll still be able to see into the cemetery and discuss the history and I will supplement the walking tour to see some of the mansions and historic homes the Garden District is known for). Then it's on to the food at 3 stops- enjoy a favorite neighborhood eatery to enjoy local Gulf seafood. Next stop, Dat Dog for booze & sausages like gator, crawfish, hot Creole & duck (veggie options available)! We finish with a Creole dessert: learn the history of chicory cafe au lait and beignets! During walks between stops, learn our lingo, traditions, architecture and a little history. Curated food, a curated cocktail, coffee, tax & tip are included in your ticket so you can sit back and relax! Will accommodate allergies/dietary restrictions if told in advance!

Lafayette Cemetery No. 1 is the oldest of the seven municipal cemeteries in New Orleans- see the above-ground tombs we are known for and learn about interesting traditions and history. Red Dog offers a fresh take on southern Delta comfort food and easygoing hospitality. Joey K's is real New Orleans food "cooked like your Mama"- a fave with locals.
