Highlights
  • Explore New Orleans sights from the comfort of an air-conditioned minibus
  • Learn the history behind famous French Quarter landmarks
  • See Garden District mansions and above-ground cemeteries
  • Go beyond tourist areas to see the levees breached by Hurricane Katrina
What to Expect
The day begins with convenient pickup at your downtown New Orleans hotel in an air-conditioned minibus to keep you comfortable in the thick southern heat. Head first to the French Quarter, the historic heart of the city, for a tour of landmarks such as Jackson Square, the Cabildo, and French Market. Drive down tree-lined boulevards past the stately Creole mansions of the Garden District before turning toward the shores of Lake Pontchartrain and the 17th Street Canal, the spot where devastating floodwaters spilled into the city after Hurricane Katrina. Cruise through the leafy expanse of City Park, and end the tour with a look at some of New Orleans’ “Cities of the Dead”—graveyards filled with elaborate above-ground tombs. Your tour ends at the original pickup location.

We took the tour as part of a business trip. The driver was sarcastic. He parked the van on the street away from the hotel and then furiously honked the horn until the valet came into the lobby and asked if someone was waiting for a tour. (We were never notified when and where
