Description

Join us for a walking tour of New Orleans’ most historic neighborhood, the French Quarter. See the “Vieux Carré” through the eyes of the Louisiana Creoles who originally called it home. Louisiana is unique amongst the various regions of the U.S. The intriguing tales of notable Creoles (of West African, Native American and European origin) will illuminate the development of the culture that distinguishes Louisiana from the rest of the American south. Louisiana is a part of the Deep South, but we are culturally the northernmost part of the Caribbean. This tour is an exploration of Creole Louisiana, an exploration of the culture that gave birth to jazz and to zydeco, to gumbo and to jambalaya. (This tours normally includes a stop in a 19th century French Quarter courtyard.)
