This guided tour also leads you inside the elegant Civil War-era Opera Guild Home, so you can explore the interior. It’s one of the only tours in the area that lets you step inside.
Afterward, journey through the above-ground tombs at Lafayette Cemetery before stopping at Magazine Po-Boy Shop for food or a drink (own expense).
The trip ends with drop-off at your French Quarter hotel.
