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.
Highlights
  • Explore New Orleans with a guide who knows the way around the city
  • Hear about how the city has recovered since Hurricane Katrina 
  • See more of the French Quarter, Garden District, and beyond in a small van
  • Two tour times to choose from to best fit your schedule
  • Round-trip transportation arranged from your hotel
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.

To be honest, we weren't expecting much from a tour of the city. The week we were in town every single day was setting a new Heat record so we decided maybe just spend a day in the comfort of an air condition tour van seeing parts of the city that we might not make it too

ozz, our tour guide, made a fun, informative afternoon city tour great. In a few hours we had a good over view of the history and layout of the city. Will recommend this tour to anyone visiting the city for the first time.

We were amazed at how intriguing this tour was. Also interesting is that this is a great first tour. We were surprised at how much our guide knew about New Orleans. Whether it was the ninth ward (where recovery from Katrina was hardest), or the French Quarter, or the Garden

The tour was great. Teddie our guide was most informative. Would highly recommend to others. Definitely worth the price.

The trip was comprehensive, but the vehicle was cramped and only a window seat afforded adequate views. The guide was friendly, but had limited knowledge of the area. Nothing overly negative, just nothing outstanding.
