Double Feature Weekend

We have two wonderful tours we are featuring this weekend highlighting both the beauty of Southeastern Louisiana and the strength of the people of New Orleans. On Saturday, February 25, join us in the afternoon for a wonderful, leisurely tour of Oak Alley and Laura Plantations. See the contrast between the Creole plantation and her American neighbor! This tour is $86 per person and runs from 12:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. this Saturday.

Then on Sunday take an intimate trip through the devastation of Hurrican Katrina and witness first hand our progress in rebuilding the city. The tour will not only explain our levee system and the series of events that led to the many problems resulting from the storm but will also take you by five different levee breaches and into the Ninth Ward where you can see the budding rebirth of one of the most severely devastated neighborhoods. This tour is $65 per person and will run from 8:30 a.m to 12:00 p.m. this Sunday.

Super Sunday Feature

Tomorrow might be the big day for Pats and Giants fans, but if you're looking for a more serious start to your day, why not join us for our Post Katrina Tour? This three and a half hour tour takes you through all the major neighborhoods within the city of New Orleans, showcasing five different levee breaches and ending on an uplifting note, with a visit to the still devastated 9th ward where evidence of rebuilding is most pronounced. Call for reservations: 1-888-223-2093. This tour is $65 per person and departs at 8:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.

Sunshine Days

We may be known for rain, but we've been enjoying some beautiful January days recently. What's the best way to get out and enjoy the sunshine if you're visiting from out of town? How about spending an afternoon in the swamp! See some critters, enjoy the scenery, and revel in the warm Louisiana sunshine. We have two options for swamp tours, the fast and thrilling or the slow and peacful. Or you could head out for a full day and enjoy the lovely winter grounds–including the lovely winter flowers–at a few plantations on our Grand Tour. A day of sunshine may be just the thing you need before heading out to Bourbon Street! Call 1-888-223-2093 to reserve.
