About Us

New Orleans Native Tours was started by my mother and I to show visitors why we love our city the way we do. After growing up in New Orleans my family and I moved away, each year missing our hometown more and more.

We finally decided to move back to New Orleans, returning just weeks before Hurricane Katrina hit. We found ourselves yet again leaving the city we love so much. A couple months went by and it was time to get back and join the rebuilding. After the hurricane we noticed how many people from around the country and world care about New Orleans the way that we do. It was great to see the progress our city was making from year to year and we wanted to share it.

We eventually decided to start New Orleans Native tours, giving tours from our perspective. We work together and focus on our most recommended City/Cemetery Tour as well as our Plantation Tour. All of our tours are kept small and personal, never exceeding 25 people. This coupled with our comfortable buses, hotel pick up, and laid back feel allow our visitors to sit back and learn about our city without the hurried and impersonal feel that many large tours tend to give. Our tours give information ranging from history and architecture to food and local events.

Whether you’re here for a family vacation, a convention, or just a quick getaway we have a tour for you. So join us on one of our daily scheduled tours or contact us about setting up private group tours or transportation.

Tour Showcase


We checked out a few tour agencies on the mornings we wanted to go visit the Plantations and are so glad we picked New Orleans Native Tours! The tour guide, Christophe, was friendly and made you feel comfortable with his relaxed approach and went out of his way to explain the history, culture of New Orleans and historical sites and was kind enough to give us tips on good places to eat out in New Orleans too. We had a great time at the Plantations (Laura, Oak Alley, as well as the others we passed on the way) and there was plenty of time for exploring and taking photos. The tour bus was clean, new, very comfortable and the guide was nice enough to play jazz music on the way back to New Orleans which put us all in super relaxed mode after an enjoyable day out. New Orleans is such a magical place to visit, with so much history and this is the tour to take if you want a great experience!
