From Creole cottages to shotgun homes to ornately decorated mansions, history's written all over the buildings of New Orleans. The knowledgeable guides at New Orleans Savvy Tours teach people to see it. Their tours explore the Spanish, French, and Creole architecture of the French Quarter and beyond, using it as a lens to discuss the history of the Big Easy. On Royal Street, the houses date back as far as the mid 1700s, long before the founding fathers even carved George Washington out of a cherry tree.
