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 was such an interesting and original tour of New Orleans street art and the meaning behind it. Glad we went, even in the frigid temps.

    It was wonderful learning about the powerful stories behind the murals you can casually walk by in New Orleans. So glad I went on this tour. You learn about the history of New Orleans and it’s artists directly from the people who are a part of that community when taking this tour.

    Carlos was both incredibly knowledgeable and charming. There was an amazing variety of art and each piece was unique. Carlos brought his personal experience and color to the tour. I've been to New Orleans many times, and this was a fantastic way to get into less touristy areas and experience the living local art culture.

    This was really an excellent tour! Abby was personable and engaging, and was so knowledgeable about the city and about the work we saw. We had a limited amount of time in Nola, and this was a super efficient use of our time so we knew what we were viewing. Highly recommend!
