French Quarter Walking Tour, The USA

Let your own 'local expert' unravel the mysteries of one of America's oldest and most unique living neighbourhoods.

Follow in the footsteps of historic figures as you stroll along the banks of the mighty Mississippi, through the French Market and Jackson Square, and down the banquettes (sidewalks) of quaint streets. Learn about the Creoles and the history of the original city, founded in 1718 by French explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville. See the Old Quarter come to life as your guide explains its secrets and helps you to understand all that it has to offer - architecture, courtyards, gardens, food, music and art.

Tour the oldest building in the Mississippi Valley, the Old Ursuline Convent, constructed by French colonial engineers under the auspices of the Crown and completed in 1753. Over the centuries, this building has been a convent for the Ursuline Nuns, a school, an archbishop’s residence, the archdiocesan central office and a meeting place for the Louisiana legislature. Total duration is two hours.
