The guides of Southern Style Tours are dedicated to introducing visitors to the complex, fascinating history of New Orleans and lead jaunts around the city to fill them with knowledge of local lore, culture, and culinary delights. After tucking in the sun, guides shepherd sightseers on the Bourbon 101 walking route, past Bourbon Street’s brightly lit shop and restaurant façades. Beginning at the Bourbon House, tourists’ taste buds and ears revel in the famed street’s range of fare and street music as feet carry them to the Acme Oyster House, then past Jazz Park into The Famous Door bar and for quick pause at Old Absinthe House before expeditions end at Pat O’Briens. Throughout the walk, guides point out landmarks and divulge insider tips on Bourbon Street manners, and tour-takers demonstrate their ordering etiquette and hand-washing acumen during several tour breaks near eatery and restroom clusters. Southern Style Tours launches urban expeditions seven days a week from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. or when the mayor flicks the lights on and off.
