What to Expect On Your Bourbon Tunnel Tour

Built by the Bourbon kings and queens in the 18th and 19th centuries, the Bourbon Tunnel is a system of tunnels and subterranean rooms and passages. In these underground passages were air raid shelters, and water and sewage systems. As you go through this subterranean passageway, your guide will fill you in on all the details about the tunnel’s history and its impact on the city’s growth.
