Mid-morning to early afternoon is the best time to take this tour. After 3pm, Bourbon Street, as well as other parts of the French Quarter, can get a little wild and a little crowded.

Precautions

Bourbon Street is particularly known for petty theft, so watch your belongings closely. Also, make sure to look for cars before crossing the street. Not all corners have a traffic light or stop sign.

Street parking is possible, but will be difficult. Try to find a parking garage nearby, or park a little further out and walk to where the tour begins, at Monty's on the Square.
