Free French Quarter Tour

The French Quarter: New Orleans oldest neighborhood. Established in 1718, the French Quarter, is perhaps America’s oldest neighborhood. It should be at the top of everyone that’s visiting New Orleans list. The French Quarter is a place of constant change, settled by the French, ruled by the Spanish, occupied by the Americans, and the second-largest port of entry for Italian immigrants in the 19th century. In the 20th century, it became a haven for artists, musicians, and bohemians. Then one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world. Often looking down on for being so “touristy” The French Quarter might be the oldest neighborhood in the United States. It has been continually occupied since the cities founding in 1718 and it features countless surviving examples of intact 19th century architecture. After our free tour by foot in New Orleans’ French Quarter, it will become apparent why New Orleans is Americas’ Most Interesting City.

Eric took us on a walk around the French Quarter and discussed more than the usual main sights. He gave us an insider’s feel for what it’s like to live in Nola, plus environmental insights. He never talked down to the crowd but instead elevated the usual tour guide info. I would have given this five stars, but he was so efficient our tour lasted only a little over an hour.

I highly recommend taking this tour. Eric was great! Knowledgable, friendly and genuine, which is something I appreciated a lot, telling you things as they are. Not a commercial tour but a truly local one. And being part of a small group of 7 people is really enjoyable too. The tour took about 1h30 and it was full of insights. I took it towards the end of my trip so it helped me to fill the rest of my days with interesting activities, I wouldn't have known of otherwise.

We went on an excellent tour of the Garden District with David. David was knowledgeable, passionate, and very engaging. Loved learning about the interesting history of the district, architecture of the buildings, the veritable cast of rich eccentrics and how this all ties to New Orleans’ own unique history. I was hoping for a tour that was as entertaining as it was educational and this absolutely hit the mark! Would 100% recommend!

We had a super time with David. Very knowledgeable and nice! He has an academic background in history and I liked how he told us the history, but also helped you think about different aspects of the same facts from diverse points of view. He also shared good tips for food and other places to visit. I would really recommend him for the French Quarter tour and also other ones.
