Welcome to New Orleans! Our teen friendly tour will explore what makes the Crescent City and Louisiana unique. We discuss the general geography, history and culture of new Orleans’ past and see how it’s influenced our present.
We visit the Mississippi River and Jackson Square and then stroll a few blocks through the historic French Quarter. Your tween or teen will learn about our unique culture, including the people, music, architecture, Mardi Gras and even the great food that New Orleans is known for. We explore the contributions of the earliest European settlers and the immigrants that later played a major role in shaping the culture of the city. We also discuss how New Orleans played a pivotal role in major military campaigns, trade and the growth of America.
Personal stories, historical photos, maps and documents will invite your teenager into our past. We give your teen an understanding of what life was like in the old French Quarter.

Tours do not run if there is thunder / lightning, flood watches, or heat advisories. While we don’t necessarily mind those things, children, antiques, and ghost hunting equipment don’t fare as well in such conditions. We’ll try to adjust the start time or reschedule whenever possible. If that is not possible, we will cancel and refund the reservation.
If it starts pouring while touring, we will leave it up to you whether you wish to continue the tour or stop and dry off. If you opt to stop the tour, we will refund your tickets.
Because of the nature of our tours, we do require at least 2 children attend the tour. If you are booking with one child, understand the tour is conditional. We’ll let you know 12 – 24 hours in advance if your booking is at risk of not happening. In that case, we’ll offer you options to reschedule. If that is not possible, we’ll issue a full refund.
