It's nice to have a tour guide to lead you around a city instead of getting directions from a hotel concierge whose only point of reference is "the docks." Start out on the right foot with this Groupon.

Tour-goers will wander the Lafayette Cemetery, peek at Sandra Bullock's house, and view the childhood home of Peyton and Eli Manning. Check the website for starting times.
NOLA Native Tours
The streets of New Orleans aren’t always draped with Mardi Gras beads and blaring with the sound of “When the Saints Go Marching In.” NOLA Native Tours invites its groups to experience the French Quarter and the Lower Garden District as locals would, led by native, city-certified guides. Invoking such names as Tennessee Williams and Ignatius J. Reilly, the guides take their groups for crack-of-dawn strolls by the St. Louis Cathedral and past the secret retired-parade-float colony. More esoteric routes include surveys of local celebrity homes and conspiracy theories that stretch back to the JFK assassination.
