About
This tour is designed to introduce visitors to a wide variety of inner-city neighborhoods outside of the French Quarter plus a nearby plantation (Destrehan) on River Road. Few frequent visitors to New Orleans ever see the city outside of the French Quarter or the plantation country nearby.

What to expect
  • Begin your New Orleans tour at 9am to explore some of the lesser-known neighborhoods of the city. See Lake Pontchartrain, Bayou St. John, the Faubourg Marigny area, Carollton, City Park, Faubourg St. John, the University Section, the lovely Audobon Park, the 17th Street Canal, and the Garden District. Visit one of the city's famous cemeteries, St. Louis Cemetery #3, to see one of the 'cities of the dead.' Head out of the city to Destrehan Plantation at about 12pm, with a stop for lunch along the way. Note that while your entry fee to the plantation is included in the price of the tour, food and drink at the lunch stop is not. Return to New Orleans in the evening. The actual return time will depend on traffic, weather, and possibly festivals or other events, so it's a good idea to not have any commitments that evening before 7pm.

Dominick provided us an EXCEPTIONAL discovery of New Orleans and the New Orleans area over 2 days. He is extremely knowledgeable in the history, architecture and the before and after of Katrina. Dominick picked us up at the river boat landing where we disembarked from the Queen of the Mississippi and took us to our hotel, 2 full days of touring including the French Quarter, Bourbon Street, the City in General, Destrehan Plantation, a couple short Jazz performances, the best restaurants ever and then took us to the airport for our departure. Simply a wonderful experience that we cannot stop talking about. Of course it is in the guide: Dominick Musso is FANTASTIC!!

Dominick is extremely informative and did a great job keeping our young children engaged! He was prompt in picking us up from our home, and willing to work with us to tailor the tour to our young children. It is apparent from the moment you meet him, that the next 7-8 hours were money well spent!

Thanks for taking the time to submit a review. Your kids were great! It is always an added pleasure for me to tour with children and families. I hope they enjoyed their beads! I hope your entire trip to New Orleans was great and I hope to see you again.
