Nola Tours, also known as New Orleans Architecture Tours, seeks to bring guests through different neighborhoods while showing about how various cultures shape the buildings and in turn shape the community.
Katrina Horning founded Nola Tours after being a guide for several years. She realized as she started adding details about the stunning architecture to her standard Historical Garden District Tour, that she had the ability to, not only tell this history of the neighborhood, but also allow the buildings to tell their story. They are all special. From the tiny Creole Cottages in the French Quarter to the grand 1800’s mansions Uptown. Even the block full seemingly ordinary ranch homes in the Garden District has a tale to tell. Nola Tours lets them take center stage.
The tour company started with one tour and one guide. It has evolved to a new name, multiple tours, multiple guides, and a new partnership with the Preservation Resource Center of New Orleans. A pairing that we are utmost proud to be a part of. It is preservation, after all, that keeps our historic neighborhoods and gorgeous homes from ruin.
At Nola Tours we have proud tour guides. Each of whom desire to engage with tourists and locals alike and talk about that pride in our city and its architecture. So join us and allow us to show you around our city.
We understand that there are many tour companies operating in New Orleans and you have many choices. We appreciate the chance to walk with you and show you something a little different from the norm.
So, come take a walk with us at Nola Tours and get to know New Orleans a little deeper.
See you soon!
