Sit back and relax in an enclosed air-conditioned minibus that transports you throughout the city of New Orleans, revealing all this magnificent city has to offer. Pass through the world-famous French Quarter and witness the rebuilding of the Ninth Ward which was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

Your tour begins with convenient pickup at your hotel, the bus taking you to the French Quarter, the oldest neighborhood in the city that is home to a number of historic buildings constructed in the late 18th century. Travel by glorious mansions sitting along Esplanade Avenue on your way to City Park where you can visit the Morning Call Cafe for strong coffee and scrumptious beignets. Stroll through the adjacent Besthoff Sculpture Garden, where more than 60 colorful and eclectic sculptures litter the landscape. Once you hop back on the bus, drive through the Ninth Ward, a neighborhood devastated by Hurricane Katrina, where rebuilding is still occurring today.

Visit the Garden District, where vast mansions line immaculate boulevards, and Faubourg Treme, one of the oldest African American neighborhoods in the country. Before returning to your hotel, make a brief stop at one of New Orleans’ iconic cemeteries, where distinctive above-ground tombs cover the land.

it was just a lot of riding and talking... really could not see anything. Not but one stop in city park.. that was because they wanted you to spend money. We did not actually stop and see an Levee... if you were on the wrong side of the bus window you saw Nothing really. when the rep talk of the 9th ward were Katrina hit.. it was very negative.

The tour was well worth the money. Our tour guide, Gary, was so well versed on the history of the city. He was professional and personable which helped to make the experience worth while.

Great tour! It was worth the money spent! The vehicle we rode in was very comfortable! The guide Gary was very knowledgeable and friendly! He explained the history of New Orleans as we passed each landmark! He showed us the flood areas which included Ward 9 and living areas near the lake and showed us where the lever had broken during the Katrina disaster! A most enjoyable tour and we leaned a great deal about Louisiana.
