Description

Experience America's oldest and most mysterious living city from the perspective of a local with this guided walking tour of the French Quarter.

Many secrets lurk in the numerous alleys named after the sinners and saints of the past, and you will almost hear their whispers as you walk along the charming streets. Take pictures in front of the gorgeous architecture of the St. Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square, and inhale the abundant scents of Creole cooking that waft in the air. Perhaps the highlight of the tour, visitors will stop by the intriguing Pharmacy Museum where the gris-gris potions of the voodoo priestesses can be discovered and learned about.
