This weekend, we were paid a special visit by The New Orleans Saints' legend - Deuce McAllister! 

Stopping in for a carriage ride this Saturday, "The Deuce" himself joined us for a tour of the French Quarter, along with his awesome family.

We had an excellent time taking in the sights of the city, and our carriage driver, Rich Lofton, was even able to get a photo with the group!

You never know who you'll run into in Jackson Square. Being the BIGGEST Saints fans, ourselves, this particular visit was one for the memory books.

Big, sincere thanks to the McAllisters for coming out. 

We love meeting each and every person who joins us on our ventures. It's one of our favorite things about the "job." If we haven't met YOU yet, we're missing out! We invite you to join us for a tour!

Pro Tip: Book right here on our website for instant availability.

I took my 10-year-old history-loving son to New Orleans. We took a carriage ride through this company. Amazing! Best carriage ride we have ever had in New Orleans. The driver shared so much interesting New Orleans history and my son hung on every word. He asked her a million questions throughout the tour. The tour was interesting to me as well and I learned a lot about New Orleans history, I didn't know. At one point, when we passed Pat O'Brian's, one of the waiters threw Mardi Gras beads to my son, which he thought was so cool. He had read a Magic Tree House book about John Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop and told me he wanted to see it when we when went to New Orleans. We actually stopped in front of it on our carriage ride, and the driver talked about it being a meeting place for Andrew Jackson, his pirate buddies, and other infamous characters. But through those meetings, Jackson gathered his army and later won the Battle of New Orleans. My son was beyond excited about this story! Definitely worth the money! This teacher/mom highly recommends it for families interested in seeing New Orleans by carriage and wanting to expose their children to New Orleans history.
