  • Welcome to New Orleans: Private Half-Day Walking Tour

    $292.00Price
    On the tourism posters, New Orleans is described as “24 4/7 Since 1718” and this fantastic introduction to one of the world's most fascinating cities will provide unique insight into the energy kick behind a unique melting pot of cultures. 

    On your private tour of the Big Easy, you will:

    - Discover New Orleans' most popular highlights of the city of jazz;
    - Explore Jackson Square, home to iconic landmarks such as the St. Louis Cathedral, the Cabildo, and the Presbytere in the heart of the French Quarter;
    - Walk down Bourbon Street, stretching thirteen blocks from Canal to Esplanade Avenue known for its lively nightlife and rich in historic sights and iconic venues;
    - See Cafe du Monde, the legendary cafe that has been serving up hot, sugary pastries since 1862;
    - Hear local musicians playing their own tunes, and enjoy the sounds of jazz spilling onto the streets, from street performers to jazz clubs, you'll experience the city's unique musical culture firsthand;
    - Visit notable locations in the life of jazz legend, Louis Armstrong, and his contributions to the city's live music scene.
    - Enjoy a light snack and drink at a local spot, off the beaten track, recommended by your local guide.

    Enjoy a leisurely walk around this beautiful, storied city, seeking out the friendly characters, historic spots and gorgeous architecture that is New Orleans.

    Visit the oldest neighbourhood in the city, the beautiful French Quarter to learn about the diverse colonial heritage, and the notable literary and cinematic landmarks, including where greats like William Faulkner and Tennessee Williams wrote some of their famous works among the nation’s most historic buildings.

    Your guide will introduce you to Dixie jazz, of course, the annual Mardi Gras when over a million partygoers descend on New Orleans for the world's best street parade (an event that brings an incredible $ 160 billion into the local economy). Then, immerse yourself in the neighbourhood where one of jazz music's greatest talents grew up.

    Today, Armstrong’s birthplace is long gone, though there are plenty of ways New Orleans has sought to commemorate their greatest musical son. The airport, a downtown park, and an annual “Satchmo” summer festival are all named for Louis Armstrong - there are also plenty of sites and sounds that owe much to the city’s most famous musical talent.

    At the end of your tour, pop into a local hot spot off the tourist drag, where your guide will recommend more ways to immerse yourself with the real locals of the Big Easy.
