An authentic carriage tour in New Orleans is the perfect way to get acquainted with and experience the real heart of the city. Guided by a local and licensed professional, the carriage tour will introduce you to the interesting history, culture and architecture of the French Quarter at a leisurely pace. Certain tours offered in the early morning and afternoon even include an additional visit to Saint Louis Cemetery.

If you book a tour at either 5.00pm or 6.00pm, you'll get the chance to explore a Creole neighborhood known as the Faubourg Marigny. This historic, offbeat district is home to many Creole museums, colorful cottages, shotgun homes and the famous, jazz-filled Frenchmen Street.
