Meet your guide in the afternoon at a convenient French Quarter location and explore the boundaries of this historic neighborhood, including the mighty Mississippi, Jackson Square, and waterside French Market. See French and Spanish colonial architecture as you walk past iron-lace balconies and Creole cottages, through gardens, and stopping for a tour of the Beauregard‐Keyes House (Mondays and holidays), where you can enter the studio of American author Frances Parkinson Keyes. Hear tales from New Orleans’ history, from its founding in 1718 to its evolution into a hub of music, arts, and merry-making. See the Pontalba, the oldest apartment building in the US, and step inside the Cabildo museum (Tuesday through Sunday) where the Louisiana Purchase was signed.
