Description

Your New Orleans walking tour takes place entirely in this district, also known as the Vieux Carre. Your tour guide will provide some background on the rich heritage of the city, including Spanish influence during a time when pirates prowled the Quarter’s cobblestone alleyways. We’ll walk down the narrow passage known today as Pirate’s Alley and explore stories behind notable buildings including the Cabildo, formerly a prison site, and surrounding structures that will give us a glimpse into the slave trade. The days of slavery and Victorian decadence are highlighted in many of the other famous balcony-wrapped buildings here, some mansions more notorious than others. Learn about the ghastly history of these sites and the complicated and controversial issues leading up to and during the Civil War. While we’re exploring the complex characters throughout the city’s history on our haunted New Orleans tour, we may get to pass by the home of Marie Laveau. Here, you’ll get a closer look at the practitioners of voodoo and get to know how this West African religion came to the Crescent City. And of course you’ll want all the dirt on New Orleans’ famous above-ground cemeteries and how they came to be. As we uncover the mysteries, the myths, and the magic of the city of New Orleans, your tour guide can take you past St. Louis Cathedral, one of the oldest cathedrals still in use in the whole of America, and Jackson Square, both overlooking the Mississippi River. With this spirited tour, you’ll really get a feel for the culture and vibe of this legendary part of New Orleans!
