Walksplore the French Quarter in a two hour walking tour with a local historian. Gain a deeper knowledge of one of the world's most authentic, diverse, and beloved cities. Take the only French Quarter tour that begins at a streetcar stop! From the corner of St. Charles Avenue and Common Street in the American Sector, the walking tour crosses the "neutral ground" on Canal Street into the Vieux Carre. Your walk will take you into the heart of the original French city. This is a truly unique tour that clearly explains the culture of the city as the English Protestant Americans arrive into what is essentially a foreign French/Spanish Catholic colonial city. Learn about Jackson Square, Congo Square, Mardi Gras, Free People of Color, the Slave Markets, Jazz, the French Market, Pirates Alley, the St. Louis Cathedral, and the Mississippi River. You will also learn about the architecture, difference between Creoles and Cajuns, and why we are called the Big Easy!
