My wife (a Tulane grad), 9 year old son and I just had a great 2-hour tour of the French Quarter with Ashton. He was incredibly knowledgeable and interesting, and able to keep our 9-year interested and engaged throughout (not an easy task). We highly recommend.

Thank you so much! It's always tough to gauge with kids, so I am very happy to hear y'all had a good time. I hope the rest of your trip went well, and make sure to hit me up when he's under the bright lights on Broadway. More

If you're in New Orleans and want to see what "beyond Bourbon Street" means. Take Ashton's tour. I have to admit, I wasn't very excited to visit New Orleans. This was a trip I had to take because my son will be attending Loyola, in the fall. My perception was all about Marty Gras, madness. So as to not bore... More

Booking with Ashton was a breeze. He was incredibly responsive and accommodating. We worked everything out over email. We are a party of 5—with a large range in age and stamina; thus, we decided to take two tours with Ashton over two days (rather than trying to get it all in over a long day). Day #1: City tour.

I've been on a lot of tours in different cities/countries, and this was probably one of my favorites. Ashton is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, but doesn't spout off boring facts that you probably don't care about. He tells about NOLA history, and gets into detail about certain buildings and cocktails. There's legends, myths, and famous/infamous citizens we learned about a... More

Ashton was very knowledgeable and personable. He made the tour fun and entertaining for all. We were all locals, a group of 10 adults and 2 teenagers. He gave great history lessons, educated us on architecture and took the tour at our pace, as we had two elderly people in the tour. I highly recommend this tour.

Ashton was very informative and made all the stops interesting. Questions we asked he had answers so I feel he's done his homework. I would recommend this tour to get to know different parts of NOLA.

Ashton was great in all aspects. Professional, easy and pleasant communication, didn't hesitate to negotiate a fee for a larger group with small kids, clear directions and easy meet up, and most importantly, fantastic tour.

Call Ashton, from La Vie Orleans Tours, for a wonderful couple of hours walking around the Quarter being schooled on the history of the area! He's relaxed, funny and he knows his stuff. Very educational!

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
