You'll be touring a large tract (20,000 acres) of tidewater cypress swamp. It's a dynamic ecosystem supporting many types of aquatic and moist–soil vegetation, as well as a diverse wildlife population. And you'll witness some of the most beautiful scenery around as we take you through the swamp and into the bayous lined with moss–draped cypress and tupelo–gum trees.

During your 1 hour 45 minute – 2 hour tour you'll have opportunities to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons and ibis, and we sometimes see hawks, owls and bald eagles.

3 Hour City Tour

Whether it's your first time in New Orleans, or coming back, this is our most highly recommended tour. After being picked up at your hotel in a luxury, climate-controlled mini-coach with comfortable captain's chairs, you'll pass through the streets of the French Quarter, Faubourg Marigny and Bywater neighborhoods. In the Ninth Ward you'll see the rebirth of the area most affected by Hurricane Katrina and the devastating levee failures.

You'll travel historic Esplanade Avenue under the shade of Live Oaks where you'll stop for a short cemetery tour at St. Louis #3, home to some of New Orleans' most elaborate tombs. You'll have a second stop in City Park (nearly twice as big as New York's Central Park) for refreshments, restrooms or a quick snack.

From there you'll follow the St. Charles Streetcar line and wind your way through the historic Garden District: home to such celebrities as Archie Manning (where famous quarterbacks Peyton and Eli grew up), Sandra Bullock, John Goodman, Nicolas Cage and author Anne Rice.

If you have any interest in almost 300 years of New Orleans history, culture, architecture and culinary habits, this a must–do tour. You'll have a great understanding of this special city. You'll know where you are, where to go and what it is you want to do.
