After our arrival on Saturday late morning, we’ll check into our hotel and go for lunch. Our walking tour of the French Quarter will be in the afternoon. On this tour, we’ll wander the historic streets and alleys of the Old District, passing by the street theater, peeking into historic churches, discovering hidden courtyards, all while entertaining you with stories of authors, artists, priests and pirates. Join us as we uncover the real French Quarter.
Sights we cover on the tour: Jackson Square, St. Louis Cathedral, The Cabildo, Presbytere, Pirates Alley, William, Faulkner House, Tennessee Williams House, Bourbon Street, Lafittle’s Blacksmith Shop, and more!
On Sunday the morning will be open. This would be a great time to explore the market and gallery area. We will take the trolley to the Garden District to enjoy lunch/brunch before the 1:30pm walking tour through the Historic Garden District and Cemetery-the most beautiful neighborhood in New Orleans. Sites include the Manning family home, Ann Rice mansion, and the "Benjamin Button" house. This district was home to wealthy sugar and cotton planters/factors/brokers prior to the Civil War-when New Orleans was the largest and wealthiest city in the South.
Monday and Tuesday will be a free to explore any areas of New Orleans. Below is a list of options you may do.
In the early evening on Monday, we’ll meet for an (optional) Walking Ghost Tour! New Orleans is one of the most haunted cities in the country.
