Watch history come to life around you

Unravel the mysteries of one of America's oldest and most unique living neighborhoods, in the company of an expert guide. Follow in the footsteps of historic figures as you stroll along the Mighty Mississippi, through the French Market and Jackson Square, and down the banquettes (sidewalks) of quaint streets named for saints and sinners from the city's European past.

Learn about the Creoles on this tour through the original city, founded in 1718 by French explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville. See the old Quarter come to life as your guide explains its secrets and helps you understand all it has to offer - architecture, courtyards, gardens, food, music, and art.

Your tour ends at the Cabildo, built under Spanish rule in 1795-1799, and the site of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Featuring a comprehensive exhibit on Louisiana's early history, the Cabildo served as a city hall, a courthouse and a prison. It was the headquarters of the Louisiana State Supreme Court for the landmark Plessy vs. Ferguson decision. You'll be able to view legendary artifacts on display, including the death mask of the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.

If you think you know New Orleans, think again. This guided French Quarter tour showcases the city from a whole new perspective and is perfect for newcomers and natives alike.
