Southern Style Tours understands that most tourists only get one chance to experience New Orleans, and its tours aim to encapsulate the city experience. The guides themselves go through a rigorous audition process to ensure they can hold an audience in rapt attention and are equipped with an encyclopedic knowledge of NOLA miscellanea. From the insider scoop on Amedee Peychaud, a pharmacist who invented the cocktail, to Thomas Edison's contributions to America?s first permanent movie theater, the guides dole out local histories throughout the trip. As the tour cruises across the city, it eventually stops in the St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, where explorers can visit the resting place of famous jazz musicians.
