Citywide tour - 3 hours


The most popular 3 hour driving tour, it's a Crescent City overview. We will travel throughout New Orleans neighborhoods in a luxury Honda Odyssey. We'll start in the French Quarter, where the history New Orleans began. We'll continue to the downriver neighborhoods, Marigny and Bywater and get a sense of the neighborhoods in transition as the result of the effects of Hurricane Katrina. We'll proceed up Esplanade Avenue towards Bayou St. John and to City Park, a beautiful expanse of 1300 acres. We will continue upriver along iconic St. Charles Avenue through the University area onto the Garden District. Approaching Canal Street we'll pass through the Warehouse District, World War II Museum and the Central Business District. A condensed presentation of New Orleans, this tour is great for travelers short on time and for hot summer months, we're in air conditioning the whole time!

A Recent Review of this tour

Cassandra was a delightful local tour guide. On time, professional, fun and very informed about all sort of things. We felt comfortable and relaxed as she gave the 4 in our party a custom tour. Loved spending time in New Orleans with Cassandra and highly recommend her services.
