This tour was so much fun! Cindy was our guide and she was great. We start at Pat O'Brien's and than move about the French Quarter stopping at some famous bars and some we were happy to learn about. It's a fun combination of New...More

We didn't have a lot of time for touring in New Orleans so we're delighted we found this company. Their expert guides made our experience with the French Quarter and Garden District fantastic.

Found out about Historic New Orleans Tours from a flyer at the airport. Decided to take advantage of an unexpectedly beautiful Sept day with low humidity and temps around 80 to see if I could get on the Garden District tour that afternoon. Frank was...More

We went on the scandalous cocktail tour and it was nothing like described. Ina was our guide. She did not tell us one fact that was accurate. Anderson Cooper was never in New Orleans tied to a pole during Katrina. He never made past Baton...More

We were wondering if guided tours were worth it and this company made our stay complete and maximized our time. We loved the music tour and the French Quarter. Will take more in the future!

We took the Scandal / Cocktail tour and the French Quarter Architecture history tour with this group and they were both outstanding. Both tour guides were very courteous and enthusiastic and knew more about New Orleans than you could imagine.

We took the Garden District & Lafayette Cemetery Tour and it was very good. The Guide was very knowledgable and flexible when questions moved us in a different direction.

Sitting pretty across the Mississippi River from the
rambunctious French Quarter, the Crescent City’s
second oldest neighborhood is as historic and as
scenic as any – just a lot less showy about it. With
its numerous 19th and early 20th century homes and
plentiful parks and riverside green space for cycling
and walking, subdued and low key Algiers yields the
best views of New Orleans and offers a quiet haven

Don't worry about getting lost. The tour guides are most helpful in explaining where you are and how to get anywhere else in the city at the end of your tour. Nothing to be afraid about.

I don't think this question was meant for me. I didn't take, nor did I review a City Tour with a 10 minute cemetery stop.
