“The morning is the best time to see the French Quarter. You can see the architecture, walk uncrowded streets, and taste New Orleans’ amazing breakfast scene. Did you know that breakfast Po-Boys are a thing?!” – Mark Aspiazu
Please note that no food is available during the tour. This 1.5 to 2 hour walking tour covers about one mile and will be held rain or shine, so wear comfortable shoes for walking on uneven sidewalks and bring proper gear for the weather. At least two people are needed to run this tour (may be booked separately).
Where Do We Meet?
We’ll meet at: New Orleans Secrets at 717 Toulouse Street, New Orleans, LA 70130.
No…and yes. We love our pooches, too! But they can be a distraction, so to be fair to the other tour guests, we do not allow dogs or other pets on Public Tours. But if you would like to book a Private French Quarter History Tour, then yes! Your furry family member is welcome. Please let us know when booking so we are aware.
The tour content is family friendly, so as long as they are ok being on their feet for two hours and listening to the tour guide, they should enjoy it.
As the “Northern-most Caribbean City in the World,” we do get rain in New Orleans quite often. But usually it is short, scattered showers, and nothing your favorite travel umbrella or poncho can’t handle. Plus, lots of buildings have awnings. For this reason, we go rain or shine. On the other hand, if there is a flash flooding alert or other severe weather that causes a safety concern, we will notify you in advance of the start time and discuss rebooking if your schedule allows, or a refund.
We will certainly talk about Café du Monde and prepare you with insider tips for a future visit, but we will not have time to stop here or any place else for food on a Public Tour. If you are booking a Private Tour and would like to include a short beignet stop or cocktail stop, give us a call and we can let you know if that would be possible.
We’ll end not far from where we begin, in or near Jackson Square.
This is a walking tour in the French Quarter. It will not be a fast walk, but guests should be able to stand and walk for the duration of the tour.
