Full description
Follow a local expert and unravel the mysteries of one of the oldest living neighborhoods in America. This 2-hour walking tour brings the French Quarter of New Orleans to life as your guide explains its secrets and helps you understand all it has to offer – architecture, courtyards, food, music, art, and gardens.

You will learn all about the Creole culture on this guided tour through the original city, founded in 1718 by French explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville.

Visit the intriguing and unusual Pharmacy Museum where you’ll discover love potions and other pieces of the occult. Tour the oldest building in the Mississippi Valley, the Old Ursuline Convent, constructed by French Colonial Engineers under the auspices of the crown and completed in 1753. Over the centuries, this building has been a convent for the Ursuline Nuns, a school, an archbishop’s residence, the archdiocesan central office and a meeting place for the Louisiana legislature.
