Day 1 New Orleans

Guests should meet at the specified departure point to embark on this tour. Over the course of the day, we will get an eyewitness account of the locations hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster on American soil. We will learn about the historic French District, and why it was built along the Mississippi River. Here, we will see one of the levees that was breached by Katrina and resulted in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens. Traveling through neighborhoods such as Lakeview and the Ninth Ward, we will be amazed at the volume and variety of products offloaded in the port of New Orleans, where 30% of the seafood produced in the lower 48 states is shipped out. Afterwards, we will have a better understanding of events pre- and post-Katrina, as well as the "Rebirth of New Orleans!" Led by licensed local tour guides, we will be treated to personal accounts of Hurricane Katrina. Afterwards, we will return to the departure point to end the tour. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.

The city known as the "Big Easy" is most famous for its colorful and exciting Mardi Gras celebration. Visitors will marvel at its distinctive Cajun culture and cuisine that is unlike anything else in the world.
