Enter the heart of the city of jazz with this private tour of the French Quarter of New Orleans. Along the way, you will learn all about the European origins of this fascinating city.
French Quarter Tour
We will meet at the Visitor's Center of Louisiana to begin the route through the enigmatic French Quarter of New Orleans. Here on the banks of the Mississippi, the most important city in Louisiana was born.
The French Quarter of New Orleans is one of the most distinctive locations in all the United States. This picturesque city is far removed from the traditional image of the American megalopolis. Our walk begins at Jackson Square, the central core of the neighborhood and where the beautiful cathedral of San Luis is located. New Orleans is a Catholic city within a Protestant country and here, in the French Quarter, you will find the oldest Catholic church in the country.
We will continue our tour, learning more about the European heritage of this unique neighborhood. The name comes from the French Colony that was here in the first half of the 18th-Century. As we make our way through the pretty tree-lined streets, however, we will also discover its link to Bourbon Spain. Did you know that New Orleans actually belonged to Spain for 44 years? During the tour, you will learn all this and much much more.
You will be seduced at every step of the way by the elegant colonial architecture of the colorful buildings, magnificent monuments, and jazz clubs on every street corner. After a fascinating two hours, we will say farewell but you can continue to discover the city's endless treasures for yourself.
