We have always been passionate about New Orleans inspired literary and film trivia. There are many locations in New Orleans that have been the setting for movies since 1938 and they continue to be used in a great many popular movies and TV shows as well.
From publishing to tours.
We bring New Orleans history, literature and movies to life. New Orleans has a rich history, beautiful streetscapes and parks. It is a natural magnet for screenwriters, novelists and film directors to set a story. For a very long time, artists and writers have been inspired by the natural beauty, history and culture of New Orleans.
Early Days – Our passion for location based cultural trivia and stories
We started as a publishing company who hosted trivia events which then became scavenger hunts based on literary locations. Originally, we were just a group of dedicated trivia buffs who loved to write down the stories we learned about our favorite places. Our group comprised individuals from very diverse backgrounds. This diversity was represented by an individual from each of these backgrounds; a jazz family, a creole family, someone with long-standing Irish heritage (back to 1886), and someone with a society background from a large extended family which had deep Garden District/Uptown roots.
We eventually created a book based on stories of the locations and restaurants along the route of St Charles Streetcar stops. We had such momentum with the rich tapestry of stories that we collected, that we decided to publish a second book, The Anne Rice Unauthorized Tour Guide, which became a best-seller.
Tours for friends
Our friends would send people who shared our love of New Orleans- based stories and movies to visit us. We would walk around the streets showing the sites of the city and telling stories. After years of giving tours exclusivity to friends, we ventured out into the tourism world.
Tours for everyone
Some passionate members of the group decided to create this love of tours and local storytelling into a business and that was the start of our company, That Other Tour. We decided to provide tourists with high quality tours that focused on movies, TV and literary sites in the town. Our dedication to customer satisfaction continues to this day.
