Learn about New Orleans’ rich history, its architectural diversity, and the vibrancy of its present-day ‘cultural gumbo.’ Explore the museums and shops along Canal Street, check out Jackson Square, or stroll through the French Market.

A guided walking tour of the French Quarter and the Garden District are both included and leave at regularly scheduled intervals (no reservations required). You can also take a self-guided tour of Lafayette Cemetery.
