Took the Voodoo tour on Sat, June 17, 2017. Robi was informative, interactive and very entertaining! Would highly recommend to anyone interested in the history and reality via a family member that practices "Voudo" as their religion.

Head to the Garden District for the full-on New
Orleans experience replete with quaintly clanking
streetcars, proudly grandiose antebellum mansions,
picture perfect avenues lined with live oaks loaded
down with Spanish moss, and a wealth of beautiful
churches and many more architectural marvels. Even a
brief excursion here makes plain why it’s called the
Garden District. So, when you visit be sure to give

There is no physical building you meet your tour guide at. When you book your tour they will give you an address and time relevant to your tour to meet up with the guide and other members in your group.
Can someone please compare the Frenchmen Street Marigny Tour vs the Music, Art and more tours for me. We have taken the French Quarter, Garden District and Voodoo tours and have booked the French Quarter again and Ghost tour but would love more on the history of the music of New Orleans. Thank you

The Music and Arts tour is what you want. It covers the roots of music in New Orleans, as well as the painters and playwrights of our city. The Marigny tour is a history tour that includes information on where to see live... More
I plan on bringing my adult Special Olympic, special needs kids (LOL...40 & 38 yrs.) when we visit on 4/22-4/24 and was wondering about the amount of walking involved and the temperature. Are there small groups? We are driving down and where do we meet you? The Trip Advisor recommends you highly but I have no idea how to reserve, meet up with you for tour or time of day available. Please let me know. Thanks.
