Historic French Quarter Walking Tour

The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carre, sits on a crescent of the Mississippi River on some of the highest ground in New Orleans. Full of charm, wonder, and history, the unique character of this city has been formed by a marvelous blend of ethnicities that create such a colorful world here. With a two-hour walking tour, your guide will lead you to all the must-see landmarks and fill you in on the stories of life as it took shape from its founding by the French in 1718 all the way to the Creole culture and legacy of today.

This is the perfect tour for those wanting to know how New Orleans came to be, who created this place and gave it its character, and why it remains so distinctive today.

• The issues and controversies surrounding the founding of New Orleans
• Life under French, and then Spanish rule

• The slave culture of New Orleans and its impact on the French Quarter
