stroll the streets of the French Quarter & Congo Square in Treme


I will take you on a two hour walking tour of the Vieux Carré - old square in French - and just inside the adjacent Treme neighborhood. These neighborhoods were settled by the Creoles. Learn about who the Creoles are versus the Cajuns. New Orleans has a fascinating history and I love to share the stories of the people that walked its streets & made its history. We'll discuss the architecture, and why the Quarter was founded where it is.

This tour will help orient you and show you some of the unique places and sites. I am also a food aficionado, as we walk through the streets. I can share information about the best restaurants & places for cocktails. We'll stop for a cafe au lait at a wonderful French Quarter pastry shop. And don't forget music! We are spoiled with wonderful music, I will look at the music calendar to help you choose the best live local music during your stay. This tour is the heart of New Orleans, please join me.
