Full description
Don’t want to be marched through the city at a frantic pace by a 20-something? Strain to hear the guide? Boil in the afternoon heat? Then take this casual 2-hour stroll through the French Quarter during the coolest and least-crowded part of the day, a tour organized by matures, for matures. Join a small group for a more personalized touring experience with scheduled air-conditioned rest breaks, café au lait, and the perfect French croissants.

Walk through the French Quarter with a savvy native and hear the story of New Orleans’ founding. Discover what makes this city unlike any other city in the world and take home a little French Quarter architectural and culinary vocabulary. You’ll visit the most historically-significant spots in the Quarter, strolling through the French Market and up Royal Street with its wonderful photo ops. Hear the legends of Pirates Alley, and keep your eyes peeled for Elvis.

Back in Johnson Square, you’ll hear the story of the fabulous Michaela Almonester Pontalba and relive the Battle of New Orleans at the Andrew Jackson Statue. After the tour, your guide will be glad to answer questions and offer suggestions and recommendations. With this tour, your visit to New Orleans is sure to be entertaining and memorable, instead of exhausting and hot.
