3.5 hours $450 up to six people

We begin in the picturesque French Quarter. We'll discuss geography, architecture and the folks that made this fabled city in the swamp. Next weā€™ll head downriver to the Marigny & Bywater neighborhoods - dubbed the ā€œhippestā€ parts of the city, this area is currently experiencing a cultural renaissance. Weā€™ll proceed along Esplanade Ridge, lined with historic homes, toward Bayou St. John & City Park. Inside the park weā€™ll take time to stroll amongst the majestic live oaks and sample some beignets & cafĆ© au lait. These are the best beignets in the city - trust us!
We'll have transportation, but some walking, in areas like the Jackson Square & City Park is ideal. This excursion, features the highlights of the French Quarter and downriver neighborhoods.
