Full description
Take a shot or two with a chaser of New Orleans history. Some libations and citations, if you will. This drunken history walking tour is a one-of-a-kind excursion. New Orleans and booze go together like red beans and rice. The city has been the party capital of the American South since before it was American or South. The locals have figured out that just about anything can be enhanced with alcohol. That’s why your guides decided it was about time their visitors had the opportunity to stroll through the French Quarter, learning the history whilst simultaneously indulging in an age old New Orleans tradition by drinking like a local. This 21-and-older experience isn’t your ordinary walking tour. For one, the tour guide can, and will, drink with you the whole time. Being a full walking tour of the French Quarter, you’ll hear riveting stories and important knowledge necessary for a full understanding of this unique city. Thanks to the inclusion of alcohol and the characteristic lack of children, don’t expect the guide to leave out any of the gruesome or sexy details.

Very good experience with an excellent guide, I’ve been coming to New Orleans every year for over a decade and Raffle still taught me a bunch of stuff I didn’t know and show me a bunch of great places I’d never been - if you’re coming to the French quarter do this first

I’ve been to New Orleans many times and have been on several tours, however this tour was different. It was cool to learn about the different bars and their individual histories. The tour guide was awesome and had a great personality. I would recommend to a friend.

People here are looking to have a good time and experience the best of the city. This tour is fun and you learn a little about the city and why they have their best know drinks. The tour guide wants you to have fun and really helps to make sure that happens. I highly recommend!
