New Orleans Self-Guided Walking Audio Tour

2. New Orleans Self-Guided Walking Audio Tour

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app, which will serve as your personalized tour guide, audio companion, and interactive map for the heart of the New Orleans French Quarter. Once downloaded, your tour begins alongside the Mississippi River. From there, you’ll stroll along the riverfront to Washington Artillery Park for great views of the city’s beautiful Jackson Square. Then you’ll stop by the world-famous Cafe du Monde French Market and hear some fascinating history of this must-see hotspot. As you wander deeper into the French Quarter, the vibrant sounds of jazz invite you to the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park. Here, uncover the city's unrivaled musical history, from the birth of jazz to its evolution into a global phenomenon. Turning onto St. Philip Street, you’ll be greeted by a golden statue of Joan of Arc, where you’ll dive into the longstanding connection between New Orleans and France. Then you’ll turn back the clock further to hear what this land used to be before European colonization. Next, stop at the birthplace of Danny Barker and revisit the journey of this legendary banjoist and guitarist. Then continue on to the BK Historic House and Gardens, the site of a dramatic (and violent) true story of mafiosos and one stubborn local businessman. As you approach the LaLaurie Mansion on Royal Street, you’ll discover the spine-chilling true history behind this landmark, which inspired a season of American Horror Story! Making your way to Bourbon Street, you’ll experience the pulse of New Orleans. The bustling street, filled with bars, clubs, and eateries, is the city's beating heart, and there’s never a dull moment to be found here! As you walk, you’ll also get acquainted with the difference between Cajun and Creole, the origins of Mardis Gras, and so much more. Then you’ll pay a visit to Louis Armstrong Park and learn about this jazz legend, his early years, and his everlasting impact on music. The last stretch of the tour features some of the most lavish mansions in the French Quarter, as well as tales of the fires which nearly wiped New Orleans off the map! At last, your tour concludes at Saint Louis Cathedral, just a couple blocks away from the spot where it began.

Super fun experience! My husband and I really enjoyed the search for clues while exploring a new city! The only bummer was that there was a special event being set up and we were unable to solve a couple clues due to not being able to access a couple places. I highly recommend this scavenger hunt! And I plan on checking to see if others are available for new places we visit!

Some locations are missing the item. Pretty good overall.
