TOUR HIGHLIGHTS

  • The French Quarter - Whether you call it the French Quarter, the Vieux Carre' or just "The Quarter," this is the heart of the city for New Orleans' natives and tourists. A cultural hub and the oldest part of town, you'll see that the architecture reflects its age. 
  • Mississippi River Front - Stand on the banks of the mighty Mississippi River and learn about why the French chose to colonize New Orleans. Enjoy sweeping views of the West Bank and catch a glimpse of a steamship paddling by.
  • Jackson Square - When the French first settled in New Orleans this was the center of the city. Surrounding the Square are some the oldest buildings in the city and in the US. Among them are the St. Louis Cathedral (the oldest Catholic Church still in operation in the US) and the Cabildo (where the Louisiana Purchase was signed in 1803).
  • Lafayette Square - Lafayette Square is the second oldest square in New Orleans. By the 1830s the area had become the residential heart of the city's "American Sector" and was home to many elegant touwnhomes. The square is located directly across from Gallier Hall, which served as City Hall for over 100 years. It is still used for inaugurations, civic events, weekly free concerts, and parade-watching during Mardi Gras.
  • Garden District -This iconic neighborhood is made up of the homes of the wealthy Americans who made their fortunes in New Orleans after the Louisiana Purchase in 1803. Many of the mansions are now known for their celebrity residents in addition to their size and opulence. With its stunning architecture and lush vegetation, this area is a must-see for any visitor of the Crescent City.
  • Lafayette Cemetery #1-Once the burial grounds for the former City of Lafayette, this cemetery was established in 1832 and lies at the center of what is now the Garden District. Measuring just one city block, Lafayette Cemetery #1 is the final resting place of over 7,000 people--a feat made possible by New Orleans; unique burial traditions.
