What you can expect

Travel back in time during a walking tour that whisks you back to the early days of the Crescent City, to an era before the Louisiana Purchase and the Battle for New Orleans. Walk by historic landmarks in the charm-filled colonial French Quarter, and then learn about Creole burial traditions at the St. Louis Cemetery No. 1.

Meet up with your guide outside the French Market, where the muddy expanse of the Mississippi rolls nearby and the bustle of the French Quarter beckons. Listen to tales about the most colorful inhabitants in NOLA's storied past as you begin your stroll through the atmospheric Vieux Carre.

Outside the Cabildo, hear how Paris' outcasts settled in the original French colony, and how European aristocrats and land-owning gentry helped contribute to the city's heady blend of hedonism and wealth. Walk past the St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square, check out the snaking lines of tourists waiting for sugar-dusted beignets at the Café du Monde, and uncover the secrets of voodoo practitioners, saloon keepers

Your guide shares little-known facts about characters like the gutsy and ambitious Baroness de Pontalba and the pirate Jean Lafitte. Pass by the French colonial house known as Madame John's Legacy, and then make your way to St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, a prime example of New Orleans' unique above-ground cemeteries. Walk among the elaborate crypts to see the final resting place of voodoo priestess Marie Laveau.
