New Orleans: French Quarter Saint & Sinner History Tour

2. New Orleans: French Quarter Saint & Sinner History Tour

From the beginning faith has ruled this great city. For some, it has created rumors of conspiracy, witchcraft, and vampires. For others, it inspired greatness.

Did you know that the famous voodoo priestess, Marie Laveau, was also a devout Catholic? Surprises abound on this inspiring journey. Join the most unique and interesting walking tour in New Orleans. New Orleans is a hot, humid and sometimes unforgiving place where in the dead of summer the air takes on the quality of a crawfish boil. It is a long, drawn out fever that seeps into the bloodstream and compels even the sweetest from small town America to do obscene things. This is the real New Orleans which does not fit neatly into the category of "American" city. It is a black water port, Caribbean and lawless; settled by thieves, prostitutes, and the other criminally disposed. It is also Catholic and pious with Roman altars trimmed in gold. It is equally black magic, voodoo, and the steady throb of African drums. New Orleans is sex and confession. It is sin and forgiveness. This is the place where God and the Devil shook hands so the party could go on. New Orleans is a city for the sinner and the saint. This is a tour that takes you through the sweat soaked madness of our best and worst. Get lost in this strange city and explore its dark past because this is not your grandmother's tour.

It was amazing! Don't know what to do around the Town, this is a Great idea. For yourself, group of friends, couples, family's...it's very knowledgeable and a good little work out. It's at your own pace, no rush or anyone waiting on you making you feel like you're holding up the game. It takes as long as you want it too like it says. Some challenges are easy and very simple while others make you think and use some brain power. All in all this game/adventure was awesome and very fun to do! So glad I decided to grab it online for me and my wife. Both had an amazing time figuring out the questions with each other's help. I highly recommend this too others no doubt!!

I have taken quite a few helicopter flights offshore for work in drill ships and have flown during my time as a Marine but I must say the pilot and staff made me and my fiancée experience nothing but comfort, pleasure and safety during our time in the air. I have already begun telling my family and friends about them and I highly suggest people try their company. Two thumbs up Helicoptors !!!

She was a very knowledgeable person and very enthusiastic when she tells the history of the areas we visited, my husband and I enjoyed every moment of the tour and we learned so much about the French quarter for our first visit to New Orleans please keep up the good work.

It was a fun tour not everything was absolutely the truth but entertaining guide was fun.

A fascinating way to explore this New Orleans park. Wonderful!
