FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I find my guide?
We meet directly across from the entrance of the famous St Louis Cathedral! The address is 751 Chartres Street, New Orleans 70116. Our team is always flying our flag that says "Streets of Sin" (see photo).
Where does the tour end?
Depending on which experience you choose, we have two ending locations:
The "Empire of Sin Tour" ends 3 blocks from our starting point at the French Market @ 1200 Decatur Street, New Orleans 70116. The "Way of the Wicked Tour" ends 2 blocks from our starting point across from Brennan's Restaurant @ 417 Royal Street, New Orleans 70116.
What if it is raining?
Tours go out Rain or Shine! Weather can be unpredictable in New Orleans but we aren’t. We strongly encourage a poncho or umbrella. Tours can get wet and wild but unless there is lightning, a hurricane or something that puts our guests and guides in harm's way, the tour goes on. In the case of inclement weather, our team will reach out an hour in advance.
Should I tip my tour guide?
Gratuity is greatly appreciated and like anyone who works in the service industry, tour guides make their money like waiters/waitresses or bartenders/baristas. So the answer is a Big Hell Yeah!!
What if I am late?
We start our introduction and first story from the meeting location, so we will be at the starting location for the first 10 minutes, but all experiences are on a very tight schedule. You can rebook if you are too held up.
What should I wear?
We basically have the weather of a Caribbean Island, so comfy clothes, walking shoes and light layers that are breathable are all great choices. During the winter, the humidity adds a certain bite to the cold winds that blow from the river… We encourage you to please check weather and dress accordingly.
Are there bathrooms around?
In the French Quarter there are bars and restaurants on every corner so a bathroom is always within walking distance if an emergency comes up during the tour.
Will there be alcohol?
No. Alcohol is not included. Guest are allowed to stroll the streets of the French Quarter with a beer or cocktail. Streets of Sin has a ZERO TOLERENCE policy for drunk guests or guests that become disruptive during the experience.
Is the Tour accessible for the disabled?
All guides navigate streets that are safe for those who are in a wheelchair or scooter. We advise having folks that may need additional help to bring a friendly guest with them.
Do we go inside any Haunted Buildings?
Most tour experiences have a no in this sections but we are different than most tours…
Streets of Sin Tours does go in a very haunted location and actually finishes the tour with a story inside the American Sports Saloon, an infamous location that entertained one of the most notorious figures of the 1800s.
How long is the tour?
Our tours usually last about 1.5 hours, but each tour experience is unique so enjoy the ride.
