A Locals' French Quarter Tour

We will be touring all around the Historic French Quarter and 2 historic surrounding neighborhoods of the Marigny and Treme.

We will talk about the rich cultures, people and traditions of these neighborhoods that date back to the 1700's. From our beginnings as a Native American trading post to a raughty French penal colony to the rich African culture of music and Mardi Gras revelry, we will cover it all!

300 years of Creole history from a 6th generation New Orleanian!

We start at the Mississippi river and take our time strolling through the French Quarter and chronologically move from the Quarter to the Treme and Marigny.

Stops such as Jackson square, Congo square, St. Augustine Church and Frenchmen street and on to the French Market.

Mid tour we will grab a bite to eat at a local restaurant and continue on to the most historically significant stops in the French quarter and surrounding neighborhoods.
