An entertaining and fun walking tour of New Orleans' most historic neighborhood! Tour begins in front of the Cathedral at Jackson Square, and makes several stops of interest as we make our way through Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau's neighborhood. We then tour famous Louis Armstrong Park and Congo Square. Finally, we tour the oldest cemetery in New Orleans - St. Louis #1.

We had a great tour. It ended up being only my mother and I, so it was very private. We got to ask tons of questions and got all the answers. Our guide was very knowledgeable and a local so she knew all the little...More

Kerry is one of the most interesting tour guides I’ve had, and considering that I’ve been visiting New Orleans for 25 years, that’s saying quite a bit. Kerry has been a NOLA native her whole life, and her thoughtful commentary and unique perspectives reflect a...More

Kerry did an amazing job of guiding and educating us on all the interesting facts about the French Quarter. She is a wealth of knowledge and made the tour fun with her spunky personality. We definitely will recommend using her in the future!

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the
