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.
Choose Between Two Options
- $25 for Beyond Bourbon Street – A Walking Tour for two (a $50 value)
- $45 for Beyond Bourbon Street – A Walking Tour for four (a $100 value)
The two-hour tour begins with a complementary cocktail at Bar Tonique. Then tour-takers walk along the outskirts of the French Quarter, away from the touristy Bourbon Street. Sites visited include St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, final resting place of such varied people as a chess champion, New Orleans's first black mayor, the inventor of craps, and Revolutionary War soldiers. The tour will also visit sites important to the history of jazz and rock 'n' roll, as well as the city's former red-light district.
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.
