    NOLA Original Cocktail Walking Tour

    (1)
    Let the good times roll as you discover the Big Easy's vibrant drinking culture on the original cocktail walking tour of New Orleans. Explore the French Quarter's famous bars and restaurants as you sip the city's iconic libations, including the Sazerac and Pimm's Cup. On the 2.5-hour tour, learn the classic stories behind these unique concoctions as you wander through the colonial architecture of one of New Orleans' oldest neighborhoods, drinking in history and culture as you go. Embark on your exploration of New Orleans' cocktail culture from the Gray Line Lighthouse Ticket Office, right on the Mississippi River in the city's French Quarter. Your group of like-minded revelers will travel the neighborhood's historic streets, ducking in and out of watering holes and restaurants in buildings that still stand as beautiful examples of French and Spanish Colonial Architecture. While it's easy to get lost in the history of your surroundings, the real stars of the tour are the cocktails. Listen in as your guides reveal the stories behind each inventive libation and the characters that brought them to life. Learn the origins of Southern Comfort, a liqueur invented in New Orleans in 1874, and the even older story of the Sazerac, which dates back to 1850. Sample any of your favorites by purchasing a glass. You'll also get an inside peek into the city's oldest restaurant and its wine cellar and private dining rooms, where some of New Orleans' most important wheelings and dealings took place. Drink in the spirit of New Orleans by enjoying this 2.5-hour tour at the beginning of your visit to the Big Easy to pinpoint the stops you must revisit, or use it as an unexpected way to bid adieu to a city that's as rich in stories as it is in drinks to share them over.
