Here at Nola Tour Guy, we have been expounding the virtues of Walking Tours since we started back 2012. Walking Tours are a great way to get introduced to a city, to learn its history and a bit about things to do. In a city like New Orleans, with a rich and complex history all, its own, it should almost be a requirement. At Nola Tour Guy we are experts at bringing this to life on our walking tours..
As we learn more and more about Covid-19 it turns out walking tours are excellent activities for this pandemic. Covid-19 is less likely to spread outdoors. A study in The Journal of Infectious Diseases showed that 90% of coronavirus particles deactivated within 10 minutes when exposed to UV rays from sunlight. Cloth masks have also shown to reduce to spread of the coronavirus. We also have shrunk the size of the tour by 50%. So, with these precautions in place, a walking tour is a safe activity to enjoy during a pandemic.
Due to Covid-19 the New Orleans Catholic Cemeteries has closed all cemeteries to tourists so unfortunately, we had to cut this part of our historic walking tours. But we still offer a Free French Quarter Walking Tour. The French Quarter is the oldest and in many ways the most fascinating part of New Orleans. A French Quarter Walking Tour should be a must-do for anyone visiting New Orleans..
