  • Dark Crescent Tours
    Pirates. Supernatural phenomena. Gruesome crimes. The guides from Dark Crescent Tours unveil New Orleans' more macabre side while narrating the city's storied past. In the late afternoons and early evenings, the guides lead outings that visit sites associated with the eerier and more chilling facets of the city's long-distant past. The specialty walking tours provide an immersive look at the former homes of famous New Orleans authors or even interesting bars where each stop includes information about that particular establishment's history or legacy in some way. Daytime walking tours, on the other hand, spirit folks through iconic neighborhoods, including Algiers Point, the French Quarter, and Faubourg Marigny. During the jaunts, guides relate the history behind everything from the distinctive architecture and the street names to the reason why none of the sidewalks are edible.

  • 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.
