    What to Expect
    Departing from the meetup point, you'll be given a brief introduction to New Orleans history.  Then head into Jackson Square, where you will learn about the main focal points of the city - St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, and the Presbytere. A short walk down Chartres Street will introduce you to the common features prominent in French and Spanish architecture. Then you will head down bustling Royal Street to seek out other architectural wonders such as the city's first sky scraper. A slight turn onto Dumaine Street provides you with a glimpse of what New Orleans looked like before a major fire in 1788. The tour ends just a few blocks away, near the Ursuline Convent- the oldest building in the Mississippi Delta.

    I don't remember exactly. but I think the tour was about 90 minutes. You could do both tours if that's not too much walking around and they're offered on the same day.
