Are you the type of person that your friends describe as “weirdly obsessed with history?”
Do you prefer museums over movie theaters or sporting events? Is your budget for non-fiction
books way too high? Do you find yourself apologizing for over-explaining historical facts to your friends and then saying, “I promise I CAN be fun at parties!”
Well friend, you have found your people. Welcome to the New Orleans No-Nonsense
Walking Tour for History Lovers: but be warned, we pull no punches… There will be no
sugar-coating of New Orleans’ wild history on this tour.
Prepare to be transported through time as your experienced storyteller paints a detailed
picture of what life was like during different eras of French Quarter history. From Yellow Fever and the toll it took on our city, to the famous Jackson Square and the establishment of La
Nouvelle Orleans… from the history of enslaved peoples and their impact on religion and culture, to what makes the architecture in our city so incredibly unique… from our historical red light district, to the earliest notes of jazz.
This tour will have you laughing and crying as you grapple with all that New Orleans has
gone through to get where it is today. History lovers, join us on an adventure through the real, gritty, often fun but sometimes heartbreaking, history of this incredible city.
