  • French Quarter Bike Tours
    New Orleans wasn't built to be explored by car. Its narrow, stone-paved streets are best traveled by a less bulky and more leisurely form of transportation. That’s why the guides at French Quarter Bike Tours have designed a series of small-group bicycle tours to help guests take in the city’s historic layout. With local expertise and helmets brimming with facts, guides lead riders past the lacy iron balconies of the French Quarter and the colorful old homes in The Marigny, before pulling up to famous mansions in the Garden District and the homes of the city's deadest residents in historic cemeteries.

  • Ella Tours LLC
    As a descendant of German and Irish immigrants who arrived in the Port of New Orleans in the mid-1800s, Katie Landry felt ties to the city even before she lived there. Once she made her way to the Big Easy and discovered its sites, however, she found that many of the existing tours were lacking in their enthusiasm for the brave women who made contributions to the city's history. Thus, she founded Ella Tours LLC, which ushers curious tourists and locals through sites such as the Ursuline Convent, the Tomb of the Unknown Slave, and the Storyville district.

  • Audubon Insectarium
    With its imposing, slate-gray façade, the 170-year-old U.S. Custom House may be the last building in which you’d expect to hear the delighted squeals of children. But behind the steely columns, the building erupts into 23,000 square feet of colorful displays and fluttering, scuttling insects, courtesy of the Audubon Society and Insectarium. In the Asian garden, hundreds of butterflies dodge shafts of sunlight to alight on tropical ferns and the shoulders of young visitors. And at the Insects of New Orleans gallery, visitors can ogle the pink katydids, cockroaches, and lovebugs that contribute to the city’s heritage. These bug-filled displays are all part of the insectarium’s mission to conserve Louisiana’s indigenous species and inspire stewardship in its visitors. While adults can sate their curiosity with the vast array of exotic species, curators gear many displays toward young guests by making them lighthearted and interactive: the Field Camp’s entomologist answers questions about how to collect bugs or break up flea-circus strikes, and at Bug Appétit, chefs dole out insect-filled delicacies to adventurous palates.
