Most Comprehensive Tour of New Orleans
This tour combines our two most popular tours, the French Quarter Walking Tour with the Citywide Driving Tour. The morning segment is a walking tour of the French Quarter and visits the most important sites while discussing the history of the people, place and culture of New Orleans. After a break for lunch, we take a driving tour of the City. Some people prefer to have a sit down group lunch in the French Quarter or elsewhere, while some choose to have a picnic in the park.
The afternoon segment visits 10 of the 12 neighborhoods of the city with visits to a cemetery, City Park, the lakefront, the University Section and the Garden District to name a few. The driving portion covers about 50 miles within the City and provides a look at the city outside of the French Quarter.
Ideal as a shore excursion for cruise ship visitors.

Dominick is a wonderful guide! We spent the morning learning about the history and architecture of the French Quarter, including our hotel, and the afternoon seeing the rest of the city and learning about the reality of Hurricane Katrina's effect on the city. Dominick is very knowledgeable about the city and kept it interesting and informative. I would highly recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting the city.
