- Explore New Orleans Street art- Get a snack at St Roch’s market
From the bustling streets of the 9th Ward to the edge of the historic French Quarter, come experience towering murals and hidden street art while learning about the city's underground art scene. Discover a side of New Orleans that never made it into commercial travel guides on one of the most colorful tours in the city. We'll explore the largest concentration of street art, murals, and graffiti in New Orleans, painted by world-famous artists like Banksy, Rebeka Skela, Crude Things, Jeremy Novy, and Laurel True, as well as local artists such as Leluna, Swan, Henry Lipkis, and Jay McKay. By the end of the walk, you'll know more about our public art than most locals.
This experience is good for street art aficionados and people wanting to visit lesser know New Orleans neighborhoods.
