"Do you know what I like about a carriage ride? It recalls a quieter, simpler time...the gentle rocking and clops of hooves...It's a slower, more graceful way of getting around the city. Somehow, I just sense the stories and history of the old French Quarter differently from a carriage."
With these wistful words, tour guide Bill Norris along-with driver Jean Jacques Bellemare-begin a forty-five minute long journey through the fabled streets of the French Quarter drawn by the dutiful mule Milky Way.
Join them as they discuss the stories and characters of the Vieux Carre-"the old square"-the original town of New Orleans, Louisiana that despite three hundred years of hurricanes, fires and floods...not to mention pirates...has survived to become a treasured landmark of living history-a neighborhood unlike any other in America.
