Itinerary

The tour departs from the Gray Line “Lighthouse” Ticket Office located at Toulouse Street and the Mississippi River (at the Steamboat Natchez Dock), only 1 block from Jackson Square in the French Quarter.

Set out from here with your local English-speaking guide on a walking tour of the French Quarter in New Orleans.

The whole French Quarter is a National Historic District, with beautiful ironwork balconies, brightly colored shops, cafes and bars. Originally settled by the French in the early 1700’s, this area is a must visit in New Orleans.

Follow in the footsteps of historic figures as you stroll along the Mississippi, through the French Market and Jackson Square and down the banquettes (sidewalks) of quaint streets named for saints and sinners from the city’s European past. The French Market was a trading junction and has three open air markets with everything from fresh fruits to cafes and souvenir shops. Jackson Square lies in the heart of the old Quarter and reflects the many cultural influences on New Orleans.

Learn about the Creoles on this tour through the original city, founded in 1718 by French explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville.

See the old Quarter come to life as your guide explains its secrets and helps you understand all it has to offer - architecture, courtyards, gardens, food, music, and art.

Tour the oldest building in the Mississippi Valley, the Old Ursuline Convent, constructed by French Colonial Engineers under the auspices of the crown and completed in 1753.

This tour ends in the courtyard of a medicinal herb garden.
