Louisiana Heritage-History Tours
Boasting one of the most multicultural populations in the US, diversity abounds in the state of Louisiana. Locals from Spanish, African American, Jewish and Greek Orthodox backgrounds are proud to call this place home, and the result is a multicultural hub with a cultural landscape like no other. Louisiana’s modern day diversity is the result of a rich and colourful past spanning back to the early 1700s, but that’s a whole other story that’s best explained on a guided history tour. History tours in Louisiana will take you back in time to the state’s early days, but you’ll also get your share of sightseeing and hear anecdotes that you won’t find in the history books.
In the heart of Louisiana, New Orleans has one of the most unique social and cultural landscapes in southern America. Tour guides are proud of the city’s heritage and they love nothing more than sharing tales of its colourful past with travellers from all over. History tours will introduce you to the fascinating French Quarter and the historic Treme neighbourhood, which is said to be the heart and soul of New Orleans.
Tour guides will also take you right back to when the pirates of the Caribbean created a home below the Isle of Orleans. If you’re game, you can also delve deeper into New Orleans’ dark history on a haunted ghost tour. Tour guides will share tales of mysteries and tragedies as you venture around the city’s darkened streets, or step foot in one of the oldest cemeteries in existence and learn a thing or two about voodoo.Read More ...
