This is a two segment tour. The morning consists of a walking tour of the French Quarter and focuses on the movies made there. The afternoon segment is a driving tour focusing on movies made outside of the French Quarter. In both segments, visits will be made to discuss the movie plots, actors, back stories and making of local movies. Each segment is about about three hours long and there is usually a stop for lunch between segments at haunts frequented by movie stars.

You will visit a cemetery, historic neighborhoods, visit the homes of actors such as John Goodman and Sandra Bullock and the places that actors tend to frequent in and around the city.
