Brief

Celebration Tours is a locally owned and family run New Orleans tour company. We've been operating as a tour company for 12 years and we've helped over 100,000 people embrace the city of New Orleans. We use local, licensed driver guides. Some who have been tour guides for 24 years. The first thing a visitor to New Orleans should do is take a tour of the city. That way you can see how much New Orleans has to offer. We have combined elements of five tours into one exciting city tour! These tours include the French Quarter, Katrina Recovery, Historic Cemeteries, Garden District and New Orleans Architecture. Of course, there is so much more to see and learn about.

Tour Detail

Our tour runs everyday! You can choose to go from 10am-1pm or 2pm-5pm. Our tour lasts roughly 2.5-3 hours. If you're the only person booked for the tour, you're getting a tour!  You will be picked up in front of your hotel by a 15 passenger van. Hotels we pick up at include hotels in the French Quarter, Business District and the Warehouse and Arts District. Please be ready outside as the the driver will arrive within 5-15 minutes of you're scheduled time. That van, holds inside your very own New Orleans local. The tour aims to be as personable and pleasurable as possible so there is usually only 8 to 10 people in the van. This tour will always run, rain or shine, no matter the number of people that booked the tour. Traveling via the tour van allows you to be able to see so much more of the city since many other larger vehicles are not allowed to go deep into the French Quarter, the 9th Ward, or the Garden District. Operating with smaller groups and smaller vehicles allows for more interaction. The environment here will allow you to sit back, relax, and feel comfortable. Please ask as many questions as you want.

Some of the places you'll see include French Quarter, Frenchmen Street, Marigny Neighborhood, 9th Ward, Musician's Village, Treme Neighborhood, Esplanade Avenue, Bayou Saint John, City Park, Lake Pontchartrain, 17th Street Canal, Historic Above Ground Cemetery, Carrollton Avenue, Oldest Streetcar in the World, Saint Charles Avenue, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Garden District, Famous Homes, Magazine Street, National WWII Museum, and the Warehouse and Arts District. The tour concludes as you enter the Central Business District.

If you would prefer to be dropped off somewhere in the French Quarter, you can request to do so. Otherwise, you will be brought back to your hotel.

Brief

Celebration Tours is a locally owned and family run New Orleans tour company. We've been operating as a tour company for 12 years and we've helped over 100,000 people embrace the city of New Orleans. We use local, licensed driver guides. Some who have been tour guides for 24 years. The first thing a visitor to New Orleans should do is take a tour of the city. That way you can see how much New Orleans has to offer. We have combined elements of five tours into one exciting city tour! These tours include the French Quarter, Katrina Recovery, Historic Cemeteries, Garden District and New Orleans Architecture. Of course, there is so much more to see and learn about.

Tour Detail

Our tour runs everyday! You can choose to go from 10am-1pm or 2pm-5pm. Our tour lasts roughly 2.5-3 hours. If you're the only person booked for the tour, you're getting a tour!  You will be picked up in front of your hotel by a 15 passenger van. Hotels we pick up at include hotels in the French Quarter, Business District and the Warehouse and Arts District. Please be ready outside as the the driver will arrive within 5-15 minutes of you're scheduled time. That van, holds inside your very own New Orleans local. The tour aims to be as personable and pleasurable as possible so there is usually only 8 to 10 people in the van. This tour will always run, rain or shine, no matter the number of people that booked the tour. Traveling via the tour van allows you to be able to see so much more of the city since many other larger vehicles are not allowed to go deep into the French Quarter, the 9th Ward, or the Garden District. Operating with smaller groups and smaller vehicles allows for more interaction. The environment here will allow you to sit back, relax, and feel comfortable. Please ask as many questions as you want.

Some of the places you'll see include French Quarter, Frenchmen Street, Marigny Neighborhood, 9th Ward, Musician's Village, Treme Neighborhood, Esplanade Avenue, Bayou Saint John, City Park, Lake Pontchartrain, 17th Street Canal, Historic Above Ground Cemetery, Carrollton Avenue, Oldest Streetcar in the World, Saint Charles Avenue, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Garden District, Famous Homes, Magazine Street, National WWII Museum, and the Warehouse and Arts District. The tour concludes as you enter the Central Business District.

If you would prefer to be dropped off somewhere in the French Quarter, you can request to do so. Otherwise, you will be brought back to your hotel.
