Barbara was our guide. She took great care of us. Water at every stop. It was hot and humid. Loved the history of the area and the dishes we tried. Learned so much. Great tour for a first timer.

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

I believe it started at 11am and finished at 2pm. Might not be best for slow walkers. New Orleans had a lot of obstacles to navigate by foot. Probably not the best for those with a physical disability. But call them and ask.
