Jackson Square and Cafe du Monde are places everyone should take in. I lived in New Orleans for 9 years and went here many times. Festivals in the French Quarter area are a must to take part in.

You should be able to but they don’t all do the same routes. We didn’t take a night time one, but on our walking tours we saw several carriages giving tours. We had Dave the purple man and we took his last tour at five pm.
