French Quarter Tricentennial Walking Tour

Celebrating 300 years of history in America’s most European city! 

Let your own ‘local expert’ unravel the mysteries of one of America’s oldest and most unique living neighborhoods.

Learn about the Creoles who developed the original city, founded in 1718 by French explorer Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville. 

Stroll down the banquettes (sidewalks) of quaint streets named for saints and sinners from our European past.  See the old Quarter come to life as your guide explains its secrets and helps you understand all it has to offer - architecture, courtyards, gardens, food, music, and art. 

Be the envy of locals as you enjoy restricted access through Gray Line to visit the beautiful St. Anthony's Garden, directly behind the Cathedral – Basilica of St. Louis, King of France. You will also enjoy exclusive access to the private courtyard of New Orleans Spring Fiesta Association.  Neither stop is available to the general public.

We’ll pass by Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop, built between 1722 and 1732 and reputed to be the oldest structure used as a bar in the United States.  The property is believed to have been used by the Lafitte Brothers, Jean and Pierre, as a New Orleans base for their Barataria smuggling operation.

Your tour officially ends with access to one of the historic Louisiana State Museums where you may continue your search for history on a self-guided tour.  Admission is included.   

You will receive a specially minted Tricentennial souvenir doubloon which will afford you discounts on admissions to several historic museums in the French Quarter including the Old Ursuline Convent Museum, The Beauregard-Keyes House, and the new Jazz Museum at the U.S. Mint.
