As a major tourist attraction, New Orleans has long offered visitors a wide variety of tours of the historic city, from modern, comfortable, air-conditioned tour buses to no-frills wooden mule-drawn wagons.
You can also opt for open-top double-decker sightseeing buses painted bright red, like London's famous double-decker buses.
The New Orleans City Tour allows you to get off at any stop and spend as much time there as you want. The route passes through most of New Orleans' major historical and cultural attractions in the downtown area.
You are not limited by the time frame at a particular place, as with a regular tour. You can make your own schedule and see much more than you would on foot. The tour will be led by an experienced Russian speaking licensed guide.
What is included in the tour
Our licensed guides will arrive at your hotel or meeting point. We will pick you up and give you a historic tour of New Orleans. During the trip, we will show you everything that a tourist needs to see. So, the sightseeing tour includes the following places.
- Garden District
Built in 1806 by Barthelemy Lafont as an open semi-urban system of interconnected parks with pools, fountains and canals, the Garden District was one of the earliest manifestations of the Greek Revival to appear in New Orleans.
The names of the nine muses of Greek mythology are still preserved on the streets, and many of the Greek Revival and mid-19th century Italianate houses remain in excellent condition.
- Magazine Street
Magazine Street is opening retail stores, including high-end vinyl stores and art galleries.
Why go? The place is also dotted with dozens of fantastic places to shop, eat and drink. Cool down with a glass of craft beer at The Bulldog or stop by The Tasting Room, a cozy wine bar. Food choices range from gourmet hot dogs to tapas.
- Cemetery Lafayette
It was founded in 1833 and was named for Lafayette, the city in which it was located and which would eventually be incorporated into New Orleans. Lafayette Cemetery is a municipal cemetery owned and operated by the city, not the church. It is the third oldest cemetery still standing in New Orleans.
As you walk down the central aisle, look to the fourth tomb on the right, where the Sersi family buried three children in two days. Yellow fever epidemics caused many such tragedies in 19th-century New Orleans, especially among settlers in the area who were not immune. Another curious tomb is dedicated to the orphans, and you will find it to the left of the center of the cemetery.
- Pontchartrain Bridge
On August 30, 1956, the Pontchartrain Lake Dam was opened across Lake Pontchartrain, Louisiana. The Lake Pontchartrain Dam Bridge is the longest continuous water bridge in the world.
The bridge links urban New Orleans with small communities on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain. The road is 38 kilometers (24 miles) long and is supported by 9,500 concrete slabs.
During the tour, the guide will tell you about the most famous sights, show you the best cafes and restaurants, and give you tips for exploring the area on your own.
