Overview
Highlights
    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

    Wonderful tour! Highly informative and entertaining. Our guide had a great personality for the role and obviously enjoys his work. Tour covered a large swath of the city. Sculpture garden gate was locked (which our guide said has been an issue), which was quite disappointing,
