Highlights of a Free Tour in New Orleans

A Free Tour in New Orleans will take guests around the historic heart of the city, the superb French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and energetic nightlife along Bourbon Street. The French Quarter (also known as the Vieux Carré) is a perfect place to stroll by colorful buildings and bars with cast-iron balconies serving fantasy cocktails (do not forget to order a Sazerac!). In the area visitors can also find the Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis, the oldest in the USA, enjoy the extensive Jackson Square, and find gourmet restaurants to taste muffuletta sandwiches, po-boy and oysters. St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 is a beautiful landmark with an amazing history, and it’s a great place to head to after visiting the small but informative New Orleans Historic Voodoo Museum. Finally, the National WWII Museum, the New Orleans Museum of Art and the Audubon Aquarium of the Americas are also important landmarks.

Things to Do in New Orleans

Jazz lovers will have a wonderful time here. First, we recommend joining New Orleans Free Walking Tours around Treme, the oldest continuously occupied black neighborhood in the USA, and the birthplace of jazz. Then, tourists can also spend a great night at Preservation Hall, the iconic jazz venue in the French Quarter. More live music venues are lined up in a famous three-block section of Frenchman Street, in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood. But there’s more than music in New Orleans! Tourists can go to bustling Jackson Square to enjoy the historic gardens, see the constant concerts and happenings in the area, or even take a horse and carriage ride. Many visitors go to Uptown neighborhood to explore the lush natural landscapes of New Orleans in the historical Audubon Park. Optionally you can drive to Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve to enjoy a swampland tour and see some giant alligators!
