Description

from French Quarter Carriage Tours
Just as authentic as a plate of beignets or ride on a steamboat, a carriage tour through old New Orleans is a must for any visitor. For years, carriage tours have been one of the best ways for both locals and visitors to be introduced to the history, culture, and architecture of the French Quarter and surrounding areas. Each carriage driver is a local, professional, and licensed tour guide offering a unique, personal presentation of each historically accurate tour.

Carriage Tours that visit Saint Louis No. 1 Cemetery include a full walking tour inside the cemetery, lasting approx 20 mins, and admission into the cemetery is included. Visitors will see the tomb of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, the Italian Benevolent Society Tomb, the pyramid owned by Nicolas Cage, and more.

Carriage Tours that visit the Marigny Neighborhood known as the Faubourg Marigny (pronounced Foe-Berg Mare-iny) will experience many Creole Mansions, Colorful Cottages and Shotgun Homes, and the local jazz-filled music district of Frenchmen Street.
