New Orleans is an escape from the ordinary. Spend an afternoon exploring the city’s famously lush gardens and you may just find yourself getting lost in the charm. Join in on a garden tour to get the full experience of the stories, history and lore that makes these remarkable gardens such a large part of the city’s cultural and aesthetic magnetism.
Whether you plan on spending the day meandering the streets of the Garden District or discovering great works of art showcased below stately oak trees in the Sydney and Walda Bestoff Sculpture Garden in City Park, New Orleans’ magnificent gardens offer an unexpected journey out of reality and into a world where time seems to stand still.
Since many of the garden tours focus on different sections of the city, visitors treat themselves to a vacation within a vacation - exploring different components of the city without ever being more than 15 minutes away from downtown New Orleans. Each garden has its own rich appeal – no two places feel quite the same. Make reservations for a tour now and look forward to discovering the beauty that makes locals never want to leave and leaves visitors wishing that they didn’t have to.
