New Orleans Unique Urban Design Allows for A Selection of Transportation Options!



The Gray Line Lighthouse is centrally located and a short walk from many of the area’s most popular hotels and visitor hot spots. With the narrow historic roads of the French Quarter, walking is usually the quickest route.



Gray Line offers a complimentary courtesy shuttle to all tour customers. This shuttle picks up at select area hotels, but is open to any tour customer even if you are staying at a different hotel. Simply wait at the designated area during the scheduled pick up times. Please note shuttle times are subject to change, please check back for updates.



The New Orleans streetcar system will drop you right at our front door. The interconnecting system weaves its way through the city from the historic St. Charles to the mid-century modern Riverfront Streetcar. Follow link below for routes and maps.  



The Gray Line Lighthouse is conveniently located around a variety of parking lot options. These lots offer hourly rates and are managed by Premium Parking. Please see link below for more information.
