Limo Tour

We are a group of 6' 2 teenage boys, Mom (me), Dad and my parents, 70's.

The primary reason for our visit is to tour Tulane. We have a few days so want to see as much as possible, still keeping it interesting for the teenage boys.

We are thinking of a walking tour - ghost and/or crime, swamp tour, and whatever else is interesting. Living social has a deal to rent a limo for a very reasonable price, especially since we are 6 people. Instead of doing a group tour, does it make sense to rent a limo? If so, what should we do and see?

Thanks!

Here are our plans thus far, sorry that I didn't provide enough details for responses.

We are arriving around dinner time on Saturday night, 3/29. We are having difficulties finding affordable lodging in the FQ, so we're not sure where we will be staying that night. Our thoughts are to eat at the Gumbo Stop in Metarie for dinner, then head to the FQ to walk around. We have 2 teenage boys so it should be interesting.

Sunday morning, we have reservations for a jazz brunch at 2 Sisters at noon. We are open to change this if others are better. We will check in at some point at the Wyndham Garden/Baronne Plaza. We have the rest of the afternoon and evening free - walking tour, driving tour, ghost tour, swamp tour? Any suggestions?

Most of Monday will be devoted to our Tulane visit - tour, class observing, admission, etc. we will need a place for lunch nearby, any suggestions? We have reservations at CP for dinner at 7pm.

Tuesday - we are completely open to do any tours not done on Sunday. We could go to Cajun country or stay nearby. Suggestions?

Based on this, do you think a limo rental would work with our schedule, and if so, what would we do?

Thanks,

court of two sisters is a buffet with a wide variety and atmosphere and music but we consider the food to at best...average...best bet is to have them fresh make your omelettes or anything else they will prepare on the spot......Muriel's is top notch and you can grab a drink and go up on the balcony and check out Jackson square from there. I have not had limo experience here but with the care a small and conducive for walking many wing it...Strange True tours are most accurate to the legends...

A swamp tour early does not give all the beauty and wildlife and we are just shivering out of a cold winter here...so May is always a better time for swamp tours...maybe an outfit like celebration tours or VIP tours will give you a special group rate since they use mini vans....city/garden district might be nice and the free day might be good for a combo tour of Laura Plantation/Oak Alley...check out what the tour outfits offer....the Presbyter Museum at Jackson Square has a very good Katrina exhibit and Mardi Gras exhibit is on the second floor.
