What You'll Get
The tour begins at the french statue inside Latrobe Park, located on the river side of Decatur Street between Ursuline and St. Phillip, at 11am. There, you will meet your guide, who will be waiting near the benches that surround the statue.
In the shade of the trees while resting, you will begin your journey into the history of New Orleans. Starting near the famed French Market, the oldest open air market in the USA, it was also one of the dangerous districts in the city back in the mid 1800s. You will then walk to the Ursuline Convent and past the Beauregard House, discussing the colonial days and the civil war. You will continue down Chartres Street to view some beautiful examples of courtyards, shotgun houses, and creole cottages on what used to be a street holding the barracks for the city.
From there, you will then cross the beautiful tree lined Esplanade Avenue, where you can see examples of mid-19th century wealth in New Orleans.
You then move into the Marigny and head towards the famed Frenchmen Street, what is now known as the "Jazz District". Hear about the roots and history of the first true American art form "Jazz". There, you can grab a refreshment if needed and then head down to Washington Square Park where you will sit down and end the tour.
