Tour guides regale riders with the legends of one of America’s most storied cities in a warts-and-all historical survey. Passengers hear of the lasting ramifications of the Supreme Court case Plessy v. Ferguson, which led to the creation of the segregated Rampart/Perdido neighborhood—the birthplace of Louis Armstrong, and of jazz itself. In the Garden District, vast mansions line pristine boulevards, including the childhood home of Eli and Peyton Manning. The tour descends into St. Louis Cemetery No. 3, where elaborate marble crypts squat sternly like miniature cathedrals. The tour then moves on to Holt Cemetery, the final resting place of Charles “Buddy” Bolden, the world’s very first jazzman.

Southern Style Tours

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.
