What's Included

Walking Note:

The narrow streets of New Orleans French Quarter are best navigated on foot.  While this tour does  make use of private tour coaches for many portions it should be noted that there is a fair amount of walking  involved and guests should be prepared to walk (at a leisurely pace) from 1 to 3 KM on several days.
