New Orleans City & Cemetery Combo Tour By Cajun Encounters

Save 10% with code NOLA55 - Combination bus and walking tour!

New Orleans city tours begin at the birthplace of New Orleans - the French Quarter! As guests ride through the Quarter telling the history of the city, our tour guides point out many locally known and loved highlights along the way including Jackson Square, the Saint Louis Cathedral and our famous French Quarter balconies. Leaving the French Quarter, guests will be taken down creole Esplanade Avenue to the City of the Dead. See the graves of St. Louis Cemetery up close as guests walk through the well-known and highly visited New Orleans landmark. City Park and its dueling oaks are our next stop. Along the way, guests will also be shown some of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the rebuilding efforts that have taken place since this time. From there guests head to the “American Sector”, the New Orleans Garden District. Alive and well with its live-oak tree-lined St. Charles Avenue, guests will get a great sense of the luxury and extravagance of old New Orleans. This is a true step back into the antebellum era, with highlights including the former homes of author Anne Rice. The New Orleans Warehouse & Arts District is the final leg of the New Orleans overview which includes the D-Day Museum, now known as the National World War II Museum, the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center and sites from many well-known movies and box office hits.

You booked me on the wrong day and we waited at the DoubleTree for an hour and a half until they finally identified what the problem was then we had to come back and wait for the afternoon which was like pick up also so that was all a fiasco they told me they would refund my money and then they said that I would have to contact y'all so I'm it was pretty upsetting I had people with me from California to so there were several of us waiting anyway so made for a poor experience to start then because of the parades the roads were blocked and we didn't get to see a lot of the stuff

Driver was great and very knowledgeable. Other passengers didn't know how to whisper so it was hard to hear over them sometimes.
