Overview
See the most important New Orleans sights and learn about the city’s Creole heritage in just a few hours. Beat the heat aboard a comfortable air-conditioned minibus as a guide takes you through the famous French Quarter and beyond, to parts of the city that many visitors miss. Admire Garden District mansions, learn about the city’s distinctive burial practices, and see the canal breached by the floodwaters of Hurricane Katrina.
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.
