from Lee Harvey Oswald and the JFK Conspiracy Tour
Who knew that Lee Harvey Oswald was born in New Orleans? Throw in the Mafia and we may just have the answer to one of the greatest unanswered questions of all time – WHO WAS BEHIND THE SHOOTING OF JFK?

Come along with us as we trace Lee’s steps growing-up in New Orleans and during the months and weeks leading-up to the assassination.

Lee Harvey Oswald Assassin or Patsy?

Lee Harvey Oswald returned to New Orleans, the city of his birth, on April 25, 1963. He left New Orleans for Dallas on September 25, less than two months before the assassination of President Kennedy.

Why was he here - What was he doing during those months - With whom was he associating? The Warren Commission Report told one story and fifty- six years later, a very different story has emerged.

This walking tour takes you into the heart of the dark mystery centered on 544 Camp Street. We will visit the actual locations around Lafayette Square, the Central Business District and the French Quarter following in Oswald’s footsteps.

We will see the home Oswald left as a 17 year old to begin the strange odyssey that led to Dallas.You will see the very disturbing Zapruder film. You’ll see and hear from Oswald on archival film. At the end, you’ll decide: assassin or patsy.

Following In Oswald’s Footsteps.

The tour is 2 hours long, covers about a mile over level ground, includes two rest stops and ends in the French Quarter in front of Antoine’s Restaurant.

We meet by the Benjamin Franklin statue on the Camp Street side of Lafayette Park. If you are intrigued, as we hope you will be, an annotated bibliography is available upon request.

My wife and I took this tour with The Savvy Native Walking Tours. Our guide, Karen, was great! During the two hour tour she gave us a detailed and very interesting understanding of the history of this most unique place that is the New Orleans French Quarter. At the end of the tour Karen also provided some tips on areas to visit for food and drink, which proved to be spot on. Many thanks to Karen for her knowledge and hospitality! We’ll be back!

David contacted us the night before our tour to touch base and confirm meet up details. His groups are on the smaller side which affords you the chance to listen intently, ask tons of questions and have the tour tailored to you. We took the early morning combo tour of the French Quarter and the St Louis Cemetery. David's knowledge, wit and ability to tell a story in such an intriguing way made him exceptional! We ran across many other tours along the and they were HUGE and no tour guide was as engaging as David. I highly recommend him and any of his tours!

An excellent tour for learning photography insider tips while taking your own shots capturing stories of New Orlean's French Quarter. Photo Don is personable, informative, funny and a teacher who lets you do the shooting. On our next NOLA visit, we will definitely take another savvy native tour with Photo Don.

Our tour guide, Jonn, was nothing short of phenomenal. We books a tour of the French Quarters and a Cemetery tour mid morning on a Sunday. It was the perfect day and he was so accommodating and full of information. Definitely a highlight during our trip!

This was our first trip to New Orleans. For our first day in the city my husband and I booked Donald for an advanced tour and it was so much fun! What a great intro to a fascinating city! He knows so much about not only photography, but the history of the city of New Orleans as well. Donald was warm, welcoming and has a lovely sense of humor! His recommendations were also spot on for food, places to see and where to go for music. Next time we are in town, we'll be booking him again!
