Soak up the joyful atmosphere, old world architecture and jazz-imbued vibe of the Big Easy on this bus tour. Listen to tales and anecdotes from New Orleans' storied past as you ride by the charming French Quarter, the upmarket Garden District and the city's mystical bayous and urban parks.
Hop aboard a comfortable, air-conditioned tour bus and set out to explore the best of New Orleans' sights and districts. Look up at the flower-bedecked iron balconies of the French Quarter and the castle-like façade of Saint Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square.
Learn about the so-called cities of the dead – the above-ground tombs populating the town's cemeteries – and hear fascinating stories of voodoo and pirates at Bayou St. John. Climb out of the bus at City Park and spend some time visiting the Besthoff Sculpture Garden, or grab a refreshment at the Morning Call Café, a locally loved spot serving up arguably the city's best beignets.
As you follow the tracks of the St. Charles Avenue street-car, your guide tells you about the city's vibrant Mardi Gras celebration and the changing face of New Orleans post-Katrina. Pass by the stately mansions of the Garden District, the Audubon Zoo, and finally the elegant stone architecture of Tulane University's campus before your tour concludes.
