  • New Orleans: Go City All-Inclusive Pass with 25+ Attractions

    1. New Orleans: Go City All-Inclusive Pass with 25+ Attractions

    No other New Orleans sightseeing package can compare to the incredible choice, convenience, and value of the Go City pass. Your New Orleans All-Inclusive Pass includes admission to a variety of the most popular New Orleans city attractions, New Orleans French Quarter attractions, and surrounding Louisiana attractions. When you visit each location with your All-Inclusive Pass, the admission has already been taken care of. You simply follow the instructions in the guide and present your Go City pass to enter. You don’t have to wait and pay over and over again. The low price of the New Orleans All-Inclusive Pass includes savings off of the admission fees you’d pay if you purchased your New Orleans attraction tickets individually at each location. Activities, attractions, and tours included with the New Orleans All-Inclusive Pass: • Paddlewheeler Creole Queen • Adventures in New Orleans ...

    I would highly reccomend this pass to anyone visiting New Orleans and wants to cram as much as they can fit into their trip! It was super easy to buy the pass. Prior to your trip you MUST call each place on the pass you want to visit to reserve your spot in that activity. When you get to the activity, most places just asked to scan the QR code. The only place that we needed to get a physical ticket was the Creole Queen Paddlewheeler Cruise. I would highly reccomend the Sinners & Saints Tour from Hauted History Tours, The Cooking Demonstration at the New Orleans School of Cooking, and the Ultimate Swamp Adventures Tour. This pass was absolutley worth the money!

From there, your guide will take you to Jackson Square where you’ll see landmark buildings like the Pontalba apartments (the oldest continually-occupied apartments in America), the St. Louis Cathedral, and the Cabildo (where the Louisiana Purchase was signed). You will then step inside the Presbytere for a guided tour of the interior, including exhibits on Mardi Gras and Hurricane Katrina. You can’t visit New Orleans without a clos...

    Nice little tour to see a lot of the "off the beaten path" areas. A lot of the guide's regular spots were closed because of COVID-19 but he did a great job in making up for things.

  • New Orleans: French Quarter Walking Tour

    7. New Orleans: French Quarter Walking Tour

    Take a walk through the oldest historic district in America, New Orleans’ French Quarter. You will discover the role the Mississippi River played in the founding and development of La Nouvelle Orleans, as you learn more about the city’s French and Spanish heritage. You will also tour Jackson Square, one of the last remaining historical plazas in the country. Next up, you will explore the Vieux Carre’s historical landmarks, view local architectural housing types such as the Creole Cottage and Shotgun house, and hear the legends of Pirates Alley. This tour is sure to leave you with a fantastic impression of this colorful city, as well as an in-depth knowledge of its history. Your tour will eventually conclude within the French Quarter, allowing you to explore further at your own leisure.

    It was a great decision to take this tour. You get a truly better understanding of the history of NOLA. Jeremy did an outstanding job and has deep knowledge of the City. After the tour I felt that I was able to appreciate the architecture in a different light.
