Description

Experience the French Quarter as locals do on this private tour of the most popular neighborhood in New Orleans. Your private guide, a sixth-generation New Orleanian, will take you on a walk through this historic neighborhood, telling you about hundreds of years of history as you visit important sights such as Jackson Square and the French Market. Start at the Mississippi river and take your time strolling through the French Quarter and chronologically move from the Quarter to the Treme and Marigny. Hear about the rich cultures, people, and traditions of these neighborhoods that date back to the 1700s. From the beginnings as a Native American trading post to a raughty French penal colony to the rich African culture of music and Mardi Gras revelry, cover it all. Learn about 300 years of Creole history from a 6th generation New Orleanian. Stop at Jackson Square, Congo Square, St. Augustine Church, and Frenchmen Street and on to the French Market. Mid-tour, grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant and continue on to the most historically significant stops in the French Quarter and surrounding neighborhoods.
