The boat was beautiful. And the gentleman that did the historical commentary was fantastic. He made it interesting as well as amusing. I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting New Orleans.

Best River Tour Ever

Charles, our guide/narrator was EXCELLENT! Home-grown, passionate, funny, well informed, personable….SUPER Liked that he divided the history into 2 parts….going down to the Chalmette plantation (Battle of New Orleans & La history) and back (Katrina aftermath & recovery) The Creole Queen is a great vessel with plenty of seating and walkabouts; nice drink menu; spring is the best time to go we think….PERFECT!

Food was Amazing

We opted for the cruise with lunch and it did not disappoint! The Captain was very knowledgeable and shared great facts as we cruised along the Mississippi river. We were served Jambalaya, Cajun shrimp pasta, red beans and rice and some corn. There was also a Cesar salad and bread pudding. Will recommend to anyone.
