“Le Vieux Carré” is the historic center of one of the country’s oldest and certainly most storied cities. If you’re interested in delving into the intimacies and intrigue of the Quarter’s rich multicultural history, the French Quarter tours led by Two Chicks Walking Tours are right up your alley. We’ll reveal the French Quarter and its years of history with a lively local who’ll entertain, inform, and amaze you along the way.
A visit to the French Quarter is proof positive that time travel is possible. Walking through the Quarter, aka the Vieux Carre, in our Stroll With a Local tour is an experience inclusive of architectural splendors of the 18th and 19th century, like Jackson Square and St. Louis Cathedral. The historic district has an identity which is unique in all of America. Notable landmarks, significant events, and a few of our favorite things complete our tours through the area.
The sacred and the sinful share top billing in an intriguing two-hour tour. A visit to one of the world’s most notable cemeteries is followed by a discussion of the world’s oldest profession. If you’re interested in visiting the final resting place of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, you’re not alone, it’s one of the most visited gravesites in the nation. Have you seen pictures of the tomb of Nicolas Cage online and want to see it in person? How about the psychedelic scene from cult classic Easy Rider? The first hour of the DEAD Sexy tour showcases these high profile tombs along with burial traditions and historical context. The second hour changes gears and discusses the evolution of the sex trade in a vibrant port city focusing on the Storyville era.
Dip into the district’s decadent history of prostitution and pleasure seeking on our Brothels, Bordellos, and Ladies of the Night tour. In this adult-only walking tour, there are two bar stops along the way, but keep in mind that drinks are not included in the price.
Skeptics and spirit-chasers alike can take a walk on the shadowy side of the Vieux Carré on The Cynic’s Ghost Tour. One of our most favored tours, you’ll experience tales of mystery and intrigue told with dramatic flair among the Quarter’s fabled balconies and courtyards. You can decide what to believe afterward!
We always walk in small groups, so everyone can appreciate all the sights and sounds along the way with less waiting and more fun!
