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.
