It can be argued with authority (and has been) that the city of New Orleans was founded, literally, on the backs of criminals and prostitutes. Our name, New Orleans Streetwalkers Tours, is a nudge-and-a-wink reference to this history intended as a fun send up of precisely what we do: provide entertaining and historically accurate owner-operated walking tours of New Orleans for adults that usually include an alcoholic beverage, colorful language and groups that are (almost always!) maxed out at 12 guests. Almost Always! means that officially we book no more than 12 people per tour but if a guest arrives with a friend or two--for instance--they are welcome to come along. We keep our tours intimate and never allow the number of guests to endanger that. At New Orleans Streetwalkers Tours, we believe that the best way to experience our singular culture on a tour is to do so in intimate groups with a licensed, passionate guide who reveres accurate history learned through respected books, continuing education, archival research and interviews with the owners of visited locations and their peers, not through hearsay cribbed from other guides or what is legend on the streets. A tour should offer two things: accurate history and entertainment. We strive honestly to deliver both. Our tours include the Boos! & Booze French Quarter Hauntings Tour, the Crescent City Cocktail Crawl, and the French Quarter in 75 Minutes (Tour).
