7 hour comprehensive tour
The most comprehensive city tour, visitors with limited time this is for you! French Quarter, Treme & Marigny. Then we'll start with the upriver neighborhoods, Garden District and Lafayette Cemetery. We'll stop for lunch, where I will share history of our unique cuisine. Streetcar ride is next (optional) we will continue Upriver to the University and the Carrollton area. Disembark the streetcar and onto City Park. It's one of my most favorite locations with it's majestic live oaks and great history. The day would not be complete with out some music! As a capstone experience we'll listen to some great music. I can bring you to your hotel or to the airport if your departure is that evening. Alternately we can work in a Plantation visit, we would condense the city tour and visit a majestic plantation home.

I reached out to Cassandra a few months before my trip to ask for her help to customize a tour that integrated the things I wanted to specifically do: food, music and a general NOLA overview. She did not disappoint! The tour is exactly what I wanted to give me everything I needed. She was knowledgable and very well prepared. Her wealth of knowledge combined with her local recommendations made her the perfect guide. She also helped plan out my other days. I highly recommend Cassandra!
