Very Relaxing, Cocktail-Fueled Tour!

I will say that we purchased this tour through a half-priced Groupon, which only furthered the fun atmosphere of this tour because all 11 of us in our group (also... read more

We took this tour with a Groupon, it was well worth the original price. The driver was very good, he started out a little rocky, but that might be because we took the morning tour. He was an expert driver navigating the streets, guiding the tour AND also queuing up sound effects the whole time. I was impressed. He had... More

Took the city tour and was not disappointed. this is a 3 hour tour around the city which includes the French Quarter, garden district, warehouse district, and more including a stop at one of the cemeteries. Our tour guide was extremely informative and have us plenty of photo opportunities. Highly recommend this tour and service operator

Billy was our driver. He is a character with a great sense of humor. I could feel how passionate he is about the city he loves so much. His manuvering of the one way city streets that were closed due to construction & filming was impressive.

I will say that we purchased this tour through a half-priced Groupon, which only furthered the fun atmosphere of this tour because all 11 of us in our group (also Groupon-purchasers) were locals! Communing with my fellow New Orleanians from all parts of the Metro-area made the time in between the traditional jazz set breaks fly by and very entertaining!... More

We planned to go on the cocktail tour because who wouldn't want to know a little history behind New Orleans while having a stiff drink along the way? Kim did a FANTASTIC job filling the group in with insider info (including Brad Pitt and Angelina's residence). Not only did we get a cocktail tour, but she graciously took the group... More

What a waste of money, thankfully we got a discount through groupon. Instead of $70!!! pp we paid $35 pp, which was a stretch for what we got. I could have sworn it was advertised as 5 drinks, but we only got 4 tickets. Our tour was a few weeks after they starting participating in social media sites like Groupon,... More

We went on their Jazz Drinking Tour the first full day we were in the city. It was a great way for us to get acquainted with the French Quarter and experience some good music and drinks. We used a Groupon so this only cost us $35 each - well worth it at that price. The tour consisted of four... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
