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 famousSt. Louis Cemeteries, 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.
