New Orlenas events

Hello, we will be in New Orleans soon and wanted to visit cities around New Orleans, can you suggest. We will NOT be renting a car so how far can we go?

We are going to do a swamp tour, can you suggest one that would make children interested? We thought of the Cajan Tour? Please help us out.

thank you

Without an auto, you will be very, very limited. Probably only a Greyhound bus, or maybe one of the "gambler" buses. Regional transportation is otherwise, non-existent.

Tours, with pickup in NOLA will be as good as it gets.

All swamp tours are generally the same. You visit the swamp, they point out animals and some will bring out food to get a gator close to the boat.

I would recommend doing the Hop on Hop Off Bus Tours (City Sightseeing) throughout the city. You really get to see the things that you want to see Hop Off walk around and then get back on when you would like. see a majority of the city. The swamp tours are pretty standard and would be interesting for kids, but there is the New Orleans School of Cooking where they get to come in learn about New Orleans Cuisine and history it is very entertaining.
