What you can expect
Put on your complimentary Mardi Gras beads and treat your kids to a fun, friendly walking tour through New Orleans oldest and most famous neighborhood!
On the morning of the tour, you will meet in Jackson Square. Your family will enjoy a local snack (the snack varies depending on allergies and seasonal availability) while your guide presents you with a quick, easy history of New Orleans (with pictures!). This small-group tour allows for a more personalized experience.
From the Square, you will travel through the bustling, colorful streets of the French Quarter, as you learn about pirates, Mardi Gras, voodoo, jazz music, second-line parades, Creole cuisine, and history. You will also learn about how kids and families lived in New Orleans in years past. Your children will be able to stop and do at least one hands-on activity that New Orleans children love. The whole group will have a second-line parade to a favorite jazz tune!
The tour ends in the French Market, where everyone will have one last chance to ask questions before you can eat and shop where New Orleanians have eaten and shopped for generations!
Even parents and grandparents love this tour!
