Your Itinerary

    2New Orleans
    Take a sightseeing tour around the Big Easy today to visit local landmarks and historic areas. Other premium options are a Steamboat Natchez Cruise, a visit to the New Orleans School of Cooking, a French Quarter Walking Tour, or one of our favorites; the NAtionall WWII Museum!

    You'll fall in love with the Lower Mississippi today, a scenic place with large, historic mansions sitting on gorgeous properties. Included today is an excursion to Houmas House, a late 18th-century, Greek Revival style house, known as the "Sugar Palace." Other options include Oak Alley, an iconic home with 28 large oak trees used to bring in cool air from the river to the home, the Laura Plantation, the Whitney and St Joseph homes, or the Cajun Swamp Experience.
