A Fun and Engaging Overview of New Orleans' Historic District


The French Quarter is most enjoyable when walking in a small intimate group. On the French Quarter Walking Tour, we will soak in the history, architecture, and culture of America's most foreign city.

I focus on stories that bring the info to life, as opposed to reeling off facts like a history class. I am a huge architecture and history buff. I always love to cover the advent of the French Quarter architectural styles, the cultural diversity of New Orleans, the levee system and Katrina, and the difference between Cajun and Creole.

In general, this walking tour of the French Quarter allows us to cover all of the basic questions that most NOLA visitors may have. Highlights include Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, the Mississippi River, Madame John's Legacy, the Old Ursulines Convent, and the Lalaurie Mansion.

Over the course of the two-hr tour, we will walk approximately 1 mile. Restroom/beverage stops are not a problem.

If you have a larger size group, I am happy to set up a custom tour!

Itinerary

Typically start by learning about Jackson Square, then briefly swing out to the Mississippi River. Next, Madame John's Legacy to discuss the evolution of architecture. Next, the Old Ursulines Convent, military stables, and an early colonial residence. Finish behind St. Louis Cathedral on Royal Street.

If you have a larger size group, I am happy to set up a custom tour. Please let me know!
