Overview
This small-group New Orleans tour combines what most individual tours of the city cover separately, including historic cemeteries, the French Quarter, the Garden District, and an inside look into how New Orleans is doing since Hurricane Katrina. Plus, save yourself the hassle of planning transportation around the city because this guided tour comes with convenient hotel pickup and drop-off.
What to Expect
Your New Orleans tour starts with a pickup from your hotel around 15 minutes before your tour time. Get acquainted with your guide, and then set off for your city exploration.
Since this tour is by van, it’s easier for you to access areas of the French Quarter, the 9th Ward, and the Garden District that you wouldn’t be able to on a large tour bus. Pass by Frenchmen Street, Musician’s Village, Esplanade Avenue, Bayou Saint John, 17th Street Canal, Carrollton Avenue, Tulane and Loyola Universities, and the National WWII Museum.
See beautiful architecture, city landmarks, and even spooky cemeteries with local legends attached. Your guide tells you stories about the history and culture of each area, and discusses the city’s experience of and recovery from Hurricane Katrina.
At the end of your tour, get dropped off at your hotel or in the French Quarter to explore more on your own.

Took this tour in July 2019. First, they pick you up from your hotel. Second, the van is air conditioned. Third, Wanda is a great tour guide. The tour was so informative and entertaining. Lastly, we toured for 3 hours. Such a great deal.

Very well presented, and a smaller passenger van gave the tour a much more personal touch. We were even dropped off at our rented rv!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It was informative and most satisfying. The guide covered a wide range of topics throughout the city. We definitely are more knowledgeable about the uniqueness of this fine city and how it handled Katrinas devastation.

Sorry just saw this. The van holds 15 but there were only 4 of us. We did get out at the City Park for about a half hour. And we also stopped and walked around the cemetery.
