Day 1 New Orleans

After guests have been picked up from the specified departure location, we will begin this tour. Today, we will travel through three centuries of history, legends, and romance in "The City That Care Forgot!" We will start by observing the sights and sounds of the world-famous French Quarter, visiting historic Jackson Square, home of the Cabildo and the Presbytere, both part of the Louisiana State Museum system. Then, we will visit one of the famous St. Louis Cemetaries, referred to as "Cities of the Dead," where we will learn about this unique above-ground bural system, marveling at stories about voodoo and piracy on the Bayou St. John. Going down St. Charles Avenue, we will see the stately mansions, the homes of the former Kings and Queens of Mardi Gras, and the exclusive Garden District. We will get to see parts of the campuses of Tulane and Loyola Universities, which are across from Audobon Park.

Then, we will board the historic Steamboat Natchez, one of six authentic steamboats left on the Mississippi River. Every day, we can enjoy a live Calliope concert onboard. Accompanied by the captain's narration, we will explore the Mississippi Delta, one of the world's busiest ports. Afterwards, we will return to the departure point, bringing an end to this 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.
