Best French Quarter Tours

New Orleans French Quarter Walking Tours

We offer 4 types of New Orleans Tours. Please browse our options below and join me to experience an incredible tale of our city.

1. THE BASIC TOUR

I call this the basic tour, but it is nowhere near being basic. I guide you through the history from one side of the French Quarter and out the other side. Come and see the beautiful gems and jewels that this rich city holds.

We will explore the founding of Louisiana, the building of Nouvelle Orleans, and tell of the colorful people and legends that direct the stories. Starting with Bernard Marigny’s Faubourgh, then entering into the Old French colonial city, and winding our way back through the alleys and streets. There will be many stops on our way through the city, each with short stories related to the accompanying spot.

We will finish our tour on Canal St. From there you can easily enjoy streetcar rides to see more wonderful city sights, if you want. This is also a great photographic tour, as we will see some of the most iconic and historical places. But, also those out of the way places and things that only an experienced tour guide will know.

This tour is about 3 hours long and covers about 2.5 miles, at a leisurely pace.

3. CITYWIDE TOURS

This is a guided driving tour of the cities most beautiful and important places. This tour can work two ways:  First, if you have a car with insurance and a spot for one more person (me), I can show you where to go, how to get there, what to see, what to know, then how to get us back, safely. I know what spots and areas to steer clear of, and the quickest and safest ways to get around.  If your group has no transportation, I can get one of our local licensed drivers to transport us around at an additional cost. As we drive the city, I will tell you stories of the rich history that makes New Orleans a very special place to visit and live. We can exit and walk and explore, seeing sights only locals know of. There are too many to list, but some of the points we could see are: City Park, Audubon Park, Lakefront/Yacht Harbor, Chalmette Battlefield & Cemetery, Katrina sites and history, Magazine St., Garden District homes, Superdome, Famous St. Louis #1 and Laffayette Cemetery’s, River Road, etc.
