French Quarter Walking and Citywide Driving Tours Combined
This tour combines our two favorite tours...at a great value! The French Quarter Walking Tour is a 3 hour walking tour of the French Quarter that includes a one-hour imbedded tour at the Historic New Orleans Collection. After a stop for lunch, we depart the Quarter for a 3 hour Citywide Driving Tour. We'll see the New Orleans for locals and learn about the effects of Hurricane Katrina. A must see for visitors to get a sense for how people live and work in this great city.
The Citywide Driving and Plantation Tour
Another excellent value, this combo tour gives visitors an opportunity to see much of the City of New Orleans as well as venture out into the river road area and tour a plantation home. Highly recommended for visitors interested in connecting the history of New Orleans with old Southern Plantation culture.
All Day Plantation Tour
Visiting antebellum plantations along the Mississippi River gives visitors to New Orleans a glimpse into the grace, grandeur and tragedy of early southern history. Your guide will give you an understanding of the economic and cultural worlds that built, not only Louisiana but so much of the United States we know today. Learn about industries such as oil, cotton, sugar, lumber, indigo and citrus and how they allowed Louisiana to become an import/export world power.
