This tour picks up at French Quarter & Downtown Hotels 15 minutes prior to tour time. Customize this tour to your wishes.
The 3 hour city tour is our most highly recommended tour. You'll pass through the streets of the French Quarter and Lower Ninth Ward (the area most affected by Hurricane Katrina and the devastating levee failures) and wind your way through the streets of the historic Garden District.
In between, you'll travel historic Esplanade Avenue past Creole mansions, where you'll stop for a short cemetery tour at St. Louis #3, home of some of New Orleans most elaborate tombs. You'll have a second stop about half-way through the tour in City Park (nearly twice as big as New York's Central Park and the largest stand of live oak trees in the world!) for refreshments and restroom break. The second half of the standard tour covers the Uptown neighborhoods of New Orleans, including the Lower Garden District.
Covering nearly 300 years of New Orleans history, culture, architecture and culinary habits, this a must-see tour. You'll walk away not only with a great understanding of this special city, but you'll know where you are and, most-importantly, what to see and do.
Review by Theodora Clark
David was our tour guide and he was excellent! He was extremely knowledgeable and informative. He was very engaging, polite and personable. We loved our tour guide David and his tour. I thought he deserved a bigger tip than my husband gave him because it was perfect. (Posted on 12/1/2015)
