Half-Day Tour

Spend half your day with us (4-6 hours) to fit in the absolute must-sees of the Crescent City! 

Hop aboard your private tour vehicle and enjoy a drive over to the leafy neighborhood of the Garden District, known for its “gingerbread” mansions of the late-Victorian period. Next door, the Irish Channel neighborhood presents a stark juxtaposition of working-class homes to the Garden District’s affluent upper-class residences. 

Equally stunning in terms of eclectic architectural styles, the Marigny neighborhood has a little bit of everything, from great restaurants to a wide range of shops. We can stroll down Frenchmen Street, charming by day and lively by night, and hear about the legacy of the area’s notable residents. In the adjacent neighborhood of Tremé, we’ll explore the city’s African American and Creole heritage, passing by Louis Armstrong Park, and one of New Orleans’ iconic aboveground cemeteries.

Across the city in Uptown, you might recognize two of New Orleans’ institutions of higher learning, Tulane and Loyola universities. We can stretch our legs and take a leisurely walk in Audubon Park nearby, known for its wildlife, centuries-old trees, and a few relics of the past. 


Full-Day Tour

 A New Orleans sightseeing tour up to 8 hours will give you the chance to explore parts of New Orleans most tourists don’t get a chance to see. 

Another noteworthy green space, City Park, can be found just above Mid-City, and is an urban oasis filled with Spanish moss–laden trees, including the Dueling Oaks. Mid-City itself features more beautiful architecture and holds stories of rebirth and revitalization in the aftermath of destructive Hurricane Katrina. 

Heading north of Mid-City, we can enjoy views of the vast Lake Pontchartrain and hear about the indigenous and natural history of the lake as well as modern-day conservation and restoration efforts. The Bywater neighborhood will appeal to art lovers, its streets filled with beautiful and eclectic murals. Here, you might want to try the praline bacon at a neighborhood landmark and view the Mississippi River and city skyline from Crescent Park.

Based on your group’s interests, there are a number of other fascinating neighborhoods and things to do in New Orleans, like adding a food tour element or exploring the city’s incredible live music scene. And if you’re looking for a unique way to see New Orleans, let us arrange a cruise on the river, and where you can laissez les bon temps rouler!
