This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: French Quarter

On these streets, an amalgamation of cultures collide - jazz, voodoo, and Mardi Gras are some of the small hints to the roots of this city and its enigmatic people.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Bourbon Street

While we will meet on Bourbon Street, the 24-hour party that surrounds us is simply a sign of the times - a modern-day adaptation of the past. We will get a taste and then duck into the more intimate side streets of the French Quarter.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At:

It would be a sin to walk the French Quarter without talking about cocktails so your guide will show you and talk about the many cocktails birthed in these establishments. You are welcome to grab a drink (not included in the price of the tour) should you wish to continue on with a beverage in hand.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Jackson Square

While the French Quarter is synonymous with drinks, dancing, and a rowdy time, it's not all just about the party. Next, your guide will lead you through Jackson Square to visit more historical sites.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Pontalba Buildings

Take a look at these (almost) identical pieces of architecture framing the square and listen to your guide as they explain all the fascinating stories hidden in their facade - including their run as the oldest continuously-rented apartments in the United States.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Cabildo

Pause at the foot of the Cabildo, where the Louisiana Purchase was signed.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: St. Louis Cathedral

Take in the iconic view of this spire-topped beauty.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: The Presbytere

Just off the square, it is time to enter the Presbytère Museum where touching exhibits on Hurricane Katrina await. Then in an almost total 180-degree spin, view the exhibit on Mardi Gras - but that is life in the Crescent City, touching and joyful at the same time.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: French Market

On your way to your final area of the French Quarter, head into one of the most haunted buildings in the United States where supernatural encounters are close by - especially in the seance room which you’ll peek into for a few minutes before swinging through to the old French Market overlooking the beauty of Jackson Square.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At:

Round out your time in the French Quarter at Cafe du Monde where your guide will leave you to enjoy a treat and the rushing Mississippi River as it weaves past the Big Easy.
