About this Experience

The Tour

In the old French colonial city of La Nouvelle-Orléans, the women who became the its founding mothers hung their red lanterns outside wooden shacks. Two hundred years later, on the same site, was Storyville, our world-famous red light district (1897-1917), where queen-madams decked in diamonds lived in palaces of marble and mahogany. This tour covers all that, everything in between, and a few other topics not fit for print in the history books!

Learn about other women who broke the rules, such as the Baroness Pontalba, and our famous Voudou Queen, Marie Laveau. We'll share laughs with the group and answer your questions. Our tour brings these incredible time periods to life with a book of visuals, a take-home Polaroid of your group, & more!

Take home a piece of New Orleans history you'll never forget!
