Catholic Tours of the Crescent City

Catholic Tours of the Crescent City

A cornucopia of thanksgiving greets visitors to the St. Joseph’s altars. Traditional Sicilian foods fill the tables to overflowing in recognition of the saints’ goodness and generosity which will be

shared with the poor, a beautiful ‘almsgiving’ tradition in Lent. A splendor for the eyes as well as the soul!

We are offering a special 5-hour tour of the altars for viewing and sampling of their tasty treats. For details call 504 228 766

What our customers have to say

“This year for my husband’s birthday, I was determined to find something different for us to do in New Orleans! We visit the city often and we find ourselves doing the same things over and over again. My husband loves history and museums, and we are both very deeply rooted in our Catholic faith. We could not have asked for a better way to spend our Saturday than with Mr. Steve going from church to church to learn of the history that has lived in this beautiful city all along. We learned so much, and were both so moved by the beauty of the Churches. Mr. Steve knows his facts, and was so informative. I would book this tour again tomorrow, without a doubt. I look forward to coming back with my kids to show them where the Catholic Church started here in Louisiana and I look forward to letting them learn that from Mr. Steve at Catholic tours of the Crescent City!” - Kelley, TripAdvisor


Excellent! We truly enjoyed this tour. Stephen is very passionate about the Catholic Church History and we loved all the new information we learned. The churches we visited were very beautiful and interesting. I highly recommend this tour to Louisiana natives as well as visitors. - Tammy, FaceBook


Worth it for the taxi service alone to the gorgeous churches, but was much more! … - Sylvia, TripAdvisor


When you schedule a tour you have certain expectation and you hope that the actual tour lives up to those expectations. I can happily report that Catholic Tours exceeded my expectations. Steve was great, knowledgeable, personable. Thank you! - William, TripAdvisor


This absolutely wonderful, inspiring tour explains the 300 year old Catholic culture of New Orleans.... Steve’s knowledge, faith and love for these churches was evident. He even pointed out items I had missed when I visited some of the same churches. You don’t have to be Catholic or religious to enjoy these beautiful churches. I recommend this reasonable tour to those interested in history, architecture, or cultural treasures." - Lois, TripAdvisor


This was a really good tour, much better than I thought it would be. Steve is very knowledge and really enjoys what he is doing and it shows. Great with answering everyone's questions. I am not Catholic but what I learned was fascinating. Don't be fooled by the name, this tour should be on everyone's list. - HTMB29, TripAdvisor


"Great way to spend a few hours in New Orleans. Steve was very knowledgeable and informative, beautiful churches, architecture and history. A "must do" on a trip to the city.  Wonderful diversion from the Quarter!" - Randy, TripAdvisor


"This was a wonderful, personalized tour of New Orleans Catholic churches. The guide was knowledgeable and so courteous. Some of the churches rivaled ones I visited in Europe, and this was a historical side of New Orleans that most do not see. The tour was well worth the cost and time." - Michael, TripAdvisor


"...an unexpected and serene retreat from all the other tourist options. I highly recommend it." - Jenny, TripAdvisor


"Steve provides an interesting and insightful visit to New Orleans through the loving eyes of the Catholic Church...The depth of explanation provides lasting meaning to the images we may have encountered so often but then just passed by without thought.   - Brian, TripAdvisor
