A private tour with WeVenture New Orleans is always a completely custom itinerary, created just for you and your group! A private city walking tour of New Orleans can be from 2 hours - 8 hours, depending on the destination. While many visitors to New Orleans have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline. Typically, tours spend most of their time in and around the heart of the city, but we welcome any ideas for your dream tour.
No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group's interests, budget, and needs. Below are some sample itineraries to use as inspiration for your perfect tour:
A highlights tour (2-3 hours) is the perfect way to really capture the essence of one of New Orlean’s diverse neighborhoods. The French Quarter contains many of the sites that bring traveler to the The Big Easy. As you walk the historic streets lined with colorful buildings with cast-iron balconies, you’ll learn about the city’s history as a melting pot of cultures as well as the resulting food scene New Orleans is famous for today. Your local guide will lead you to the best spots for powdery beignets, fresh crawfish, hearty gumbo, and irresistible pralines.
Other landmarks we’ll want to explore include Jackson Square and the gorgeous 18th century St. Louis Cathedral. More history awaits on Bourbon Street, famous for its bars, diverse culture, and associations with the city’s early jazz scene.
A 4-6–hour tour will allow your group a slower-paced experience, fully enjoying everything the French Quarter has to offer. Feel free to take your time for some on-tour shopping at The French Market, the market is the oldest of its kind in the United States. We may catch some live music here before heading to the New Orleans Jazz Museum, exhibiting the history and instruments of the city’s early jazz greats.
For those wanting to get the most out of NOLA’s music scene, we can include in our city walk stops at Louis Armstrong Park and one of the city’s most historic jazz joints, Preservation Hall.
Go all out with us on this tour up to 8 hours, with a chance to include the highlights and half-day essentials plus more time to reach other neighborhoods via public transit or otherwise.
The Garden District is one such neighborhood, its streets lined with old trees and grand historic mansions. After we take in the incredible Antebellum architecture and hear about the area’s connection to Hollywood, we’ll head to Magazine Street to see what early life was like for the city’s working class, showing New Orleans’ iconic shotgun-style homes.
Other neighborhoods we might explore are Treme, rich with African-American and Creole heritage, and trendy Bywater, known for its art galleries, street murals, and live music. Have something else on your wishlist? Let our team know so we can build out the perfect itinerary for you and your group!
