Highlights
  • See the best of New Orleans and save money on a combo tour
  • Explore the French Quarter, Garden District, and City Park on a bus tour
  • Get outside the city on a Mississippi River steamboat cruise
  • Try Creole favorites with an optional, great-value buffet onboard
What to Expect
Begin your coach tour of New Orleans in the French Quarter, where you'll see French and Spanish heritage buildings right next to voodoo shops, Creole courtyards, and blues clubs. Continue along the route of the St. Charles Avenue streetcar to admire the stately mansions and leafy avenues of the Garden District, City Park, and other charming areas that many tourists never see. Head to the banks of the mighty Mississippi to board the historic Steamboat Natchez, the last authentic paddlewheel ship in New Orleans. Get a new perspective on the city and one of the world’s busiest ports as you cruise past the shoreline and the battlefield where pirate Jean Lafitte helped defeat the British army. Step into the engine room to see the inner workings of the paddlewheel, and listen to live jazz (seasonal) or the whistling tunes of the steam-powered calliope. For an additional fee, enjoy a delicious Louisiana-style buffet of Creole favorites right onboard the ship.
