French Quarter Walking Tour

The tour begins at Jackson Square then it's on to the Moonwalk for a panoramic view of the Mississippi River and Jackson Square -- the perfect photo op! Then we move into the narrow streets of the Quarter and discover what New Orleans’ oldest neighborhood is all about: its multi-cultural history, urban design, architecture, colorful inhabitants, food and drink, building codes, music, religious roots and more. 

By the way, this tour is a good time to ask your local guide about all things New Orleans!

Faubourg Marigny Walking Tour

Starting at the Mint, we will walk along Esplanade Ave lined with beautiful Creole mansions, then slip into the modest Creole suburb known as The Marigny named after the developer Bernard Marigny. In 1803, Marigny subdivided his plantation into small affordable lots that he sold only to persons who spoke French.

Many refugees from Haiti settled in the Marigny, which added to the population of Free People of Color that called New Orleans 'home.'   Modest creole cottages and shotguns were built, and a commercial strip developed that now has a thriving jazz scene. 

Esplanade Ridge/Marigny tours are 1-1/2 hours. Cost: $30/person.

Bookings are required. Please contact Sheila at 504-909-9368 or info@welcomeneworleanstours.com. You may also book online here.
