About
Enjoy New Orleans’ Garden District at its finest with a private local tour guide. First, I will pick you up in my SUV at your hotel or other location of convenience. Next, we will drive away from downtown towards an historic cemetery. We will visit either Lafayette #1, Metairie Cemetery, or St Joseph’s Cemetery, depending on availability and your preference. Then, we will drive down the historic St Charles Avenue to see the 1800s era mansions. Next, we will hop out of the vehicle and walk through the Garden District area between Washington Ave and Jackson Ave. We will stop in front of stunning historic homes such as the McGehee House, the Buckner Mansion, the Anne Rice Home, and the Benjamin Button House. Lastly, we will return to your hotel or drop-off location of your convenience.

Best Way To See The Garden District
Ashton was punctual and an awesome tour guide. He was very informative, knew his landmarks/history and welcomed questions. We opted for the private tour and so glad we did. It my husband, my mom and myself on this tour. The SUV was clean and spacious. The tour was for 6 people and 6 people would have been more than comfortable. It was my mom's first time to NOLA and my husband and I have done larger group garden tours in the past and felt like this experience was the best! After the tour my mom kept remarking on Ashton's pleasant voice and how much she enjoyed the garden tour. It was one of her favorite things we did, while on our long weekend. It is definitely worth the extra $ to go on this private tour and I highly recommend it!

Awesome and Intimate Way to Experience New Orleans
Apr 2021
Ashton was on-time (early actually), knowledgeable, fun and very patient with our small group of chatty ladies! We are so glad we decided to book a private tour instead of the group walking tours. I feel like I really saw New Orleans for the first time, despite several visits in the past. Ashton provided clean transportation and was very conscious of the safety precautions related to COVID-19. Long story short - YES, we would recommend!

Best Walking Tour in New Orleans!
Apr 2021
Ashton is a wonderful tour guide - extremely knowledgeable of the city and Louisiana history. We were a group of 10 and did a private walking tour of the Garden District. Ashton does a great job explaining New Orleans history and speaking about architectural details. He also has great recommendations if you're looking for any places to go. Tours aren't just for visitors - they're are also great for locals! It's great to learn more about New Orleans and its rich history. 10/10 recommendation and can't wait to do another tour with La Vie!

Garden district and cemetery
Oct 2019 • Solo
Ashton was a great tour guide. He is a very personable guy and had interesting information about everything we saw. We started with a cemetery where he explained why the area has mausoleums and the logistics in using them. Then we moved on to the garden district. I was impressed with his information about the location and development of the area. I feel like we saw all parts of the garden district, and he also threw in a lot of other information about the surrounding areas and history. He was also very willing to give me recommendations and advise for the rest off stay in New Orleans. I was very happy with my tour!

History & Fun in a relaxed atmosphere
Apr 2019 • Couples
We had a great time with Ashton in the Garden District. We pretty much hit all ten blocks, learned the difference between the architectures, saw some grand homes what the original gardens in tack, the 7 sisters, the Cemetery, Ann Rice's favorite home, the corn stalk fence & gained many other insights to this area of NOLA. If you don't know a thing about the items referred to above, that is exactly why you need Ashton to show you around town. Plus, when breakfast ran a little long, he was extremely accommodating & just picked us up at The Ruby Slipper.

Wonderful Tour and Courteous Host/Guide
Oct 2018 • Couples
Ashton was a wonderful guide and made sure to communicate with us in advance to confirm the time and place and make sure we didn't have any questions about how to get to the tour start point. He is a knowledgeable and pleasant guide. His tour was a lot of fun without any of the awkward gimmicks that some tours can resort to. Thank you for a wonderful morning in the Garden District.

Perfect Tour Around the Garden District
Mar 2018 • Couples
Ashton's tour was amazing, my fiance and I had a great time walking around garden district with him. He was very informational, had a lot of unique and interesting facts. He even took us a little out of the way to fulfill my fiance's special request of going to see the house that Beyonce owns. Really nice guy, super easy to have fun and joke around with, and really knows his stuff. We're looking forward to doing another tour with Ashton next time we're in New Orleans.

Ashton was extremely knowledgeable and just dang pleasant to hang out with for two hours. My teen daughter and I learned so much and had some laughs while doing it. Highly recommend him and will do a French Quarter Tour next time I'm in town.
