After the walking tour, rest your feet and recharge with an optional lunch at one of the city’s many fantastic restaurants (own expense). Your guide can recommend great options to try classic Creole or Cajun fare or modern Southern-style cooking, based on your preferences and any dietary restrictions.

Travel off the typical tourist path to see diverse and authentic areas like Bayou St. John, Audubon Park, St. Charles Avenue, Faubourg Marigny, Esplanade Ridge, the 17th Street Canal, Tulane and Loyola Universities, the Garden District, and more. Get a sense of what it's like to live in the Big Easy, and learn about the lasting legacy of Hurricane Katrina and continued rebuilding efforts that are shaping modern-day New Orleans.

We were lucky enough to get Dominick for our tour. His knowledge of both the early and recent history of New Orleans was phenomenal. As someone who was born and raised there he related personal anecdotes that enhanced the tour. This tour was well worth the cost and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about the city.
