Day 1 New Orleans
After guest have been picked up at the specified departure location, we will embark on this tour, following in the footsteps of New Orleans' greatest figures from history in the iconic French Quarter. First, we will visit the French Market and Jackson Square, traversing the banquettes (sidewalks) of quaint streets named for the various saints and sinners of the city's past. We will learn about the Creoles, founded in 1718 by the French explorer, Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne. The last stop on the tour will be the Cabildo, the site of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, where we can see the death mask of Napoleon Bonaparte. Because the Cabildo is closed on Mondays, we will instead visit the Beauregard-Keyes House on those days. Afterwards, we will return to the departure point, where the tour will end. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.
