Explore Louisiana with Popular Tours

The French Quarter is a major tourist destination and, as such, has New Orleans tours for just about every conceivable interest.

Walking Tours
This is the very best way to familiarize yourself with the French Quarter. Get a comfortable pair of shoes, some sunscreen and a hat for the walk.
Friends of the Cabildo French Quarter Walking Tours – Two hours long and led by highly trained volunteers with the Louisiana State Museum System who educate on architecture and historical fact. The tour visits Madame John’s Legacy as well as the 1850 House.
Jean Lafitte National Historical Park & Preserve – These popular 90-minute walks are free and led by rangers from Jean Lafitte Park. These tours are hugely informative and focus on history and architecture.
Gray Line French Quarter Walking Tour – These tours make up at the River and Toulouse Street then range throughout the Quarter visiting all the key points including Jackson Square, the Old Ursuline Convent, the Pharmacy Museum, Washington Artillery Park, Royal and Bourbon Streets.

Kenneth Holditch’s Literary Tour – Area historian and university professor Kenneth Holditch is legendary for his knowledge of literary history, particularly the minutiae of Tennessee Williams’ life in the French Quarter..
Carriage Tours
Every day from about 8 a.m. to midnight mule-drawn carriages line up on Decatur Street in front of Jackson Square. These tours are a staple in New Orleans tourism. Some carriages hold four people, others hold six. They roll through the French Quarter, rain or shine, pointing out all of the expected sites. For something more substantial than the standard nickel tour, carriage drivers can be engaged for private tours of the city.
Riverboat Tours
See the city from the body of water that made it all possible.

Steamboat Natchez Cruise – Riding the last steamboat on the Mississippi River recalls an era when steamboats were the main source of transportation, communication and commerce. It cruises downriver to Chalmette (7 ½ miles) and back twice daily, and once in the evening for a Dinner Jazz Cruise with the Grammy nominated Dukes of Dixieland. During the day there is live jazz and optional food and beverage in addition to the historic and port narration.
