Overview

Hear 300 years of history of vice and red light districts in New Orleans, and all that's not fit for print!

» Small groups: 15 guest max

» Suggested cocktails

» Fun extras: historical images, a take-home Polaroid of the group, and more!

France shipped women from the brothels and prisons to the colonies in the 1720s, sending them to Ursulines nuns for 'correction'. Instead, many hung their red lanterns out back of town, and created the most thriving red light district in the hemisphere. Gov. Bienville complained “Whatever the vigilance exercised upon them, they could not be restrained.”

In Storyville, our turn-of-the-20th-century red light district, madams decked in diamonds reigned in 'palaces of sin'. Some were so rich and powerful they committed murder and got off with no charges (one killed a U.S. Senator!).

Take home a piece of this amazing and scandalous history you'll never forget.

The Badly Behaved Women Who Made New Orleans Tour
margarettracy, Oct 2022 Verified
My sister was visiting from out of town and it gave us locals a chance to finally go on this walking tour. Our guide, Jackson, was patient, thoughtful, and well researched. His stories were interesting and helped contextualize the reputation New Orleans still maintains to this day. I enjoyed meeting these historical and impactful women. The weather was beautiful, sidewalks not too treacherous, and plenty of stops for shade and drinks!
