Enjoy a relaxing ride and experience the unique highlights of the Crescent City. Our tour provides an insider’s perspective, with opportunities to walk around on your own and take in the rich history.
US$45.00
Overview
Relax and absorb the rich history of New Orleans from your window seat aboard our air-conditioned buses. This 2.5-hour, small-group tour will pick you up at your hotel and visit many of the most historic neighborhoods including Treme, The French Quarter, The Warehouse and Garden Districts, Faubourg St John and Marigny. Stop in one of the world-famous St Louis cemeteries for a sobering and spooky sidebar and escape the group for some solo adventuring before you return to the bus.
What to Expect
Tour pick-up is 30 minutes prior to tour time and offered at hotels within the French Quarter and Business District. Group sizes are typically under 15 and never over 25. This is a bus tour with two opportunities to get out and explore. One stop is in St Louis Cemetery #3 for a guided tour and about 10 minutes to look around on your own. The tour makes a second stop in City Park at the Sydney and Walda Besthoff Sculpture Garden and Morning Call Cafe with 20 to 30 minutes to have beignets and look around the sculpture garden. Our tour guides are all licensed giving you an insider’s perspective of the city and information regarding history, architecture, and activities. Aside from the two stops your tour will also pass through and cover many other highlights, such as:

Congo Square, gathering place of slaves and eventual birthplace of Jazz
St. Louis #3 – our third oldest Roman Catholic “City of the Dead
City Park with its three hundred year old live oaks, Besthoff Sculpture Garden, and Storyland
Site of one of the major levee breaches after Hurricane Katrina, the 17th Street Canal
St. Charles Avenue with its stately mansions and oldest streetcar in America
Bayou St. John – historic waterway and place of trading for Native Americans and settlers
Lake Ponchartrain and the longest bridge over water in the world, the Causeway
Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral
