Relax and travel in style through some of the most exciting neighborhoods in America as you learn the basics of New Orleans history.

Highlights of your tour in the French Quarter include Saint Louis Cathedral, Jackson Square, Napoleon House, the French Market, Bourbon Street and Royal Street. In addition, choose between either a walking tour of St Louis Cemetery #1 – the oldest above ground cemetery in New Orleans and home to the tomb of Voodoo priestess Marie Laveau – or a ride through the Faubourg Marigny with its unique southern colonial architecture and many live music venues.
Group carriage tours travel at a leisurely pace and with small groups exceeding no more than 8 passengers per carriage. For a more exclusive experience you can reserve a private carriage which holds 1 to 4 passengers. Private Tours also give the option to tour either the Cemetery, or Faubourg Marigny. You can also rest easy in knowing that all of the mules receive at least 3-6 months of vacation per year on one of two lovely farms in the southern countryside.
