What to expect

Your day begins in front of a historic praline-maker where you’ll meet your local expert guide and a small group of no more than 20 people. Inside you’ll go behind the scenes to learn how New Orleans’ most famous sweets are made then taste one fresh out of the pot. Next, you’ll hop on a historic streetcar, zipping down St. Charles Ave and into the famous Garden District. Once populated by the city’s wealthiest families, this beautiful neighborhood is still filled with some of the grandest old mansion in America. The only difference is that they are now home to celebrities like Anne Rice and Sandra Bullock. Exploring the neighborhood, you’ll see all the most famous houses, visit the wonderfully atmospheric Lafayette Cemetery No. 1, and then step inside the Elms Mansion for a full tour of the inside. After lunch at a local favorite restaurant for Creole cuisine (included), you’ll reconvene on Bourbon Street for a full tour of the French Quarter. Your guide will take you to its most important streets and landmarks in order to immerse you in the story of French, Spanish, and African people coming together to form the Creole culture that has made the city famous. Next, you’ll step into Jackson Square to see landmark buildings like the St. Louis Cathedral and the Cabildo (where the Louisiana Purchase was signed) then step inside the Presbytere building for a full tour of the museum including exhibits on Mardi Gras and Hurricane Katrina. It wouldn’t be a NOLA tour without a ghost or two, so your guide is also taking you inside one of New Orleans’ most haunted buildings. You’ll learn the building’s history and visit the seance room, which is where the ghost is said to appear most often. Even if you don’t see him, it’s an unforgettable experience. After a quick trip to the French Market to learn about the culinary influences that have made the city one of the foodie capitals of America, you’ll swing by the world-famous Cafe du Monde and pick up complimentary beignets, a type of French donut, then take them down to the riverfront to eat them as you watch the riverboats pass by.
