Whether it's a tour in New Orleans or abroad (yes, we do those too!), the quality of your experience is our priority. Our guides are local, knowledgeable, and professional, and our group size is smaller than most other companies. That means more space and personal attention for you. We prefer it that way.

Looking for a ghost tour or supernatural adventure? Sorry, we don't do those. But come take a walk through history with us - you'll be glad you did. 

Touring with DOUBLOON means giving back to New Orleans. Many of our cherished cultural assets are at risk: from the crumbling cemeteries to the vanishing wetlands to the poverty and violence within our community. But we partner with nonprofits whose projects directly address some of these challenges. We choose to donate a portion of all tour revenue to support those projects. So by touring New Orleans with Doubloon Tours, you'll actually be making a difference in helping to preserve what’s truly wonderful about New Orleans.

Rates for all regular New Orleans Historical Walking Tours: $25 adults; $15 children ages 6 to 12

Fine print: Three-person minimum for all New Orleans Historical Walking Tours. Under-enrolled tours will be cancelled and registrants offered alternative tours or refunds. Advanced booking is required. Tours go out rain or shine; please come prepared with appropriate dress: boots, rain gear, umbrella, sunscreen, hat, water bottle, and other utilities.
