Overview
This small-group New Orleans tour combines what most individual tours of the city cover separately, including historic cemeteries, the French Quarter, the Garden District, and an inside look into how New Orleans is doing since Hurricane Katrina. Plus, save yourself the hassle of planning transportation around the city because this guided tour comes with convenient hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect

Your New Orleans tour starts with a pickup from your hotel around 15 minutes before your tour time. Get acquainted with your guide, and then set off for your city exploration.

Since this tour is by van, it’s easier for you to access areas of the French Quarter, the 9th Ward, and the Garden District that you wouldn’t be able to on a large tour bus. Pass by Frenchmen Street, Musician’s Village, Esplanade Avenue, Bayou Saint John, 17th Street Canal, Carrollton Avenue, Tulane and Loyola Universities, and the National WWII Museum.

See beautiful architecture, city landmarks, and even spooky cemeteries with local legends attached. Your guide tells you stories about the history and culture of each area, and discusses the city’s experience of and recovery from Hurricane Katrina.

At the end of your tour, get dropped off at your hotel or in the French Quarter to explore more on your own.

No, they have a fairly set route they take which takes a certain amount of time, so they don’t allow random requests to stop and walk around.
