Climb aboard the Steamboat Natchez, NOLA's only steam-powered riverboat, to marvel at the city's beauty from the slow moving, muddy Mississippi River with a two-hour daytime river cruise. The Steamboat Natchez features a live narration of historical facts, calliope concert, jazz trip, optional lunch, and engine viewing room. Next, travel on a motorcoach to see over 25-square miles of New Orleans, packed with 300 years of history, legends, and romance. Visit the French Quarter, Treme, and Marigny Neighborhoods to learn about the city's Creole founding, before heading to Cities of the Dead for a tour of the above-ground cemeteries. A mid-tour break at City Park allows guests to buy beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde or enjoy a walk through the Besthoff Sculpture Garden. Then, see Tulane and Loyola Universities, and Audubon Park before riding past the elegant mansions of former Kings & Queens of Mardi Gras in the Garden District. If it wasn't for the Mississippi River, there'd be no New Orleans, so make sure you enjoy the river, the city and all it has to offer with this combo tour today!

Great way to see NOLA in a day

about 7 years ago
We were looking for something to see some of the city sights during our weekend visit. This worked out great! We especially enjoyed the steamboat cruise. The bus tour was comfortable and the guide was nice.
