Það sem verður gert

On this 2 hours walking experience, learn about the rich & diverse history of America's most famous or "infamous" street. Together, we'll explore Bourbon street during off peak hours to avoid crowds & distractions.

I'll tell you about the city's most famous cocktails and where they can be found. We'll talk about the origins of Bourbon street starting in the 18th century with the Royal family of France and the changes the street went through with the influx of sailors in WWII and the beginnings of the Gay community.

I'll tell you some sexy & colorful tales about the local burlesque dancers in the 50s & 60s who were also national celebrities and involved with notorious mobsters and politicians. I'll also share some of my own personal family stories & photos from growing up in NOLA and watching the city evolve in the last 30+ years.

Halfway through, we’ll stop for a mid morning treat of the official state doughnut of Louisiana at Cafe Beignet and learn why there's chicory in our coffee.

Before you leave town, you'll be able to tell your friends the difference between Cajun & Creole cuisine, find out what's really in a Hand Grenade and a Hurricane, and learn the proper way to shuck a Gulf Coast Oyster.

5th generation New Orleanian born and bred. I have a degree in History from the University of New Orleans and am attempting to read just about every book ever written about the Crescent City. I tried living in Brooklyn for 7 years, but couldn't resist coming home to NOLA and sharing my love of the city as a tour guide for the past few years.

I've successfully survived over 30 Mardi Gras, one Saints Superbowl, and countless festivals. I currently live in the eclectic neighborhood known as the Bywater and am constantly exploring the city by bike and excited to share both my passion and love of New Orleans with you .

Highly recommended! Timothy is very personable and professional - Visited locations that were instagram photoshoot friendly and was also to provide great historic insight about prohibition in the city

We loved everything about this experience! The history, the stories, and the way Tim obviously knew and loved this city. Not your average scripted tour, we got to see places and shops we would never have stumbled into on our own.

Timothy was fantastic! Got to really see a bunch of unique spots and learn the history behind so much of it. Including some of our now favorite places we would have completely missed if we weren't with him.

Tim was great for our private group! He answered all our questions, pointed out areas we seemed to be interested in, gave us restaurant and store suggestions, and was overall an incredibly friendly and knowledgable guide. Definitely take this tour if you have the chance!

Super fun & informative 90 mins! Tim is a wonderful storyteller and makes the tour fun and exciting. He has photos to go with certain stories, that definitely added interesting details and clearly goes extra mile to help visualize things! (My favorites were of the burlesque girls and Bourbon Street in the 40s) I definitely learned a lot on this tour and feel like after spending a few nights on Bourbon street going out understand and appreciate the iconic tourist destination much better. Tim made me realize how special and important the street is to the city. I’d recommend Tim to any of my friends visiting the city in the future!

Tim provided an energetic account of interesting general historical stories and sites within the Quarter. Pretty basic, what you’d hear on just about any tour. So it is worth the lower price of admission compared to others. And he’s adorable, so it is totally worth it. Give him a geaux!
