On the morning of your tour, make your way to Jackson Square in the French Quarter to meet your guide. The private nature of the tour, limited to four people in your group, offers an intimate and personalized way to explore the city from a local’s perspective and get all of your questions answered.

Set off at a leisurely pace to explore 1.5 miles (2.4 km) of one of America's most atmospheric — and allegedly haunted — neighborhoods. Learn about the unique confluence of cultures, cuisine, languages, and architecture that converged to make New Orleans like no other city in the world as you explore historic landmarks such as St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, the Presbytere, the Pontalba buildings, and the Mississippi riverfront.

After the walking tour, rest your feet and recharge with an optional lunch at one of the city’s many fantastic restaurants (own expense). Your guide can recommend great options to try classic Creole or Cajun fare or modern Southern-style cooking, based on your preferences and any dietary restrictions.

In the afternoon, climb into a private vehicle for a driving tour encompassing 50 miles (80 km) through New Orleans distinctive neighborhoods. Travel off the typical tourist path to see diverse and authentic areas like Bayou St. John, Audubon Park, St. Charles Avenue, Faubourg Marigny, Esplanade Ridge, the 17th Street Canal, Tulane and Loyola Universities, the Garden District, and more. Get a sense of what it's like to live in the Big Easy, and learn about the lasting legacy of Hurricane Katrina and continued rebuilding efforts that are shaping modern-day New Orleans.

We were lucky enough to get Dominick...

We were lucky enough to get Dominick for our tour. His knowledge of both the early and recent history of New Orleans was phenomenal. As someone who was born and raised there he related personal anecdotes that enhanced the tour. This tour was well worth the cost and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the city.
icon Response from Host , Jun 2019
I am glad that our tour proved to be a great value and informative. New Orleans is both a great place to live and visit and I hope your overall trip was fun. I hope to see you again.
