$29 for a 90-Minute Architecture Walking Tour for Two ($60 Value)

During the architecture tour, groups meet at Jackson Square and then depart for 90 minutes of architectural and historical exploration by foot. Groups gaze upon examples of French, Spanish, and Creole architecture, and discuss how events such as fires in 1788 and 1794 shaped the face of the French Quarter. Highlights include French Quarter homes that date back to the 1700s, the St. Louis Cathedral, the New Orleans Courthouse, and the Ursuline Convent.

New Orleans Savvy Tours

The guides at New Orleans Savvy Tours don’t lead narrative tours; they lead conversation tours. Each outing is a chance for them to converse with individual visitors, ensuring they take the time to reflect on and absorb each wondrous piece of architecture they encounter. Tours first meet in front of Andrew Jackson’s statue in Jackson Square, then set out to discover the French Quarter by foot. As visitors gaze upon centuries-old homes and local landmarks such as the Ursuline Convent and the Old Bank, they learn how to distinguish French architecture from Spanish architecture, how to classify different kinds of ironwork, and interesting factoids such as how a shotgun home differs from a Creole cottage.
