It was great to see the historic French Quarter and understand how I can navigate my way around - great walking, eating, and socializing experience.

We had so much fun going up and down Bourbon street. So many unique places (and characters!) to see. Lots of fun street entertainment too! Take some time to learn the history of the different places.

Lots of bars, shops, restaurants, and history. Great food and great music. The street musicians were beyond fabulous. The architecture was so beautiful. At twilight the drunks, xxx, and crazies came out along with the bad smell.

This is similar to what I posted on #NomadicMatt, where I first learned about Intrepid and then subsequently booked a trip with them. The experience with Intrepid was terrible for the below reasons and for which I would never do another trip with them nor recommend them to anyone. Keep in mind that it's over $2000 per person for 10... More

Bourbon Street is a paradise for young (or young at heart) who are looking to party hearty all night long. In other words, the... More

Bourbon St is filthy and intended to get you drunk and party. You have all seen it. Not as bad as Mardi Gras, but always a drunk tank, ha! Smells bad in the morning, too. I recommend it to people one time. I have been there four or five times, no attraction now. I would rather visit the restaurants and... More

French Quarter is a good mix of old, new and familiar. Bourbon Street not so good in daytime. Spirit of Hallowe'en riding high.

The French Quarter was everything I imagined it would be from the stunning architecture, history, fine restaurants, live street music and decadence of bourbon street. Iconic.
