Tour Details

Experience the culture and splendor of New Orleans's French Quarter. This New Orleans tour will take you along the Mississippi and through historic squares to show you this famously beautiful neighborhood.

The French Quarter walking tour will take you through the original city, built in 1718 and discovered by French explorers. Stroll along the historic streets as your guide explains to you each landmark. Enjoy the tranquil gardens, the smell of traditional Cajun cooking, the sounds of jazz music in the air, and local art that the French Quarter tour has to offer.

Visit Madame John's Legacy, built in 1788 and one of the best examples of French colonial architecture in North America. Take a break at Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, built between 1722 and 1732 and reputed to be the oldest structure used as a bar in the United States. The property is believed to have been used by the Lafitte Brothers, Jean and Pierre, as a New Orleans base for their Barataria smuggling operation.

The tour will end at the Cabildo, built in 1799. The Cabildo served as a city hall, a prison, and a courthouse for decades. It was the headquarters of the Louisiana State Supreme Court for the landmark Plessy vs. Ferguson decision. This significant landmark will interest you and teach you the significance of French and Spanish influence. Don't hesitate; this French Quarter walking tour is the perfect historical tour for your trip to New Orleans.
