The French Quarter is known as the Vieux Carré, the “Old Square”. This is the original site of the founding of the City of New Orleans in 1718. Architecture in this area has Creole features, but much of the original French Colonial buildings were destroyed in the Great Fire of 1788. Take this tour to find out how the history and people influenced the buildings in this neighborhood.
“This was our third visit to the French Quarter but we were able to see it in a whole new light. Reasonably priced, and worth twice the price!!!”
“We want to echo what others have written about the value of this tour. Five of us from the SF Bay Area and Hawai’i took Kat’s architectural tour of the French Quarter on a very hot day in early Oct. She kept us moving and interested because of her clear enthusiasm and interest. She didn’t gloss over violence and oppression in the history of the city or focus narrowly on buildings, but gave important historical and social context.”
