    Itinerary

    Guests should meet at the specified departure point to embark on this tour. Over the course of the day, we will get an eyewitness account of the locations hit hardest by Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural disaster on American soil. We will learn about the historic French District, and why it was built along the Mississippi River. Here, we will see one of the levees that was breached by Katrina and resulted in the displacement of hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens. See Lakeview, Gentilly, St. Bernard, and the Upper Ninth Ward neighborhoods. On the shores of Lake Pontchartrain visit the New Basin Canal Lighthouse. After visiting the Levee Memorial Gardens, we'll make a brief stop in City Park, where you may visit either the Morning Call Cafe or the Besthoff Sculpture Garden. You'll be amazed at the volume and variety of products "offloaded" in the multimodal port of New Orleans, the second largest port in the country, and then distributed to your hometown.
    • New Orleans, LA

      The city known as the "Big Easy" is most famous for its colorful and exciting Mardi Gras celebration. Visitors will marvel at its distinctive Cajun culture and cuisine that is unlike anything else in the world.

      French Quarter

      The most famous area of New Orleans is also the oldest. Dating back to the city's founding in 1718, this National Historic Landmark district is known for its nightlife, restaurants, and celebrations. Its most famous locale is Bourbon Street.

      Lakeview

      A neighborhood in New Orleans, Lakeview is home to a few of the city's most visited public parks, like New Basin Canal Park and City Park. It is named because it overlooks Lake Pontchartrain to the north.

      Ninth Ward

      This is one of New Orleans' distinctive districts, and one of the oldest neighborhoods of the city. Unfortunately, the area suffered a great deal because of the chaos caused by Hurricane Katrina.

      New Canal Lighthouse

      Built where the New Basin Canal joins with Lake Pontchartrain, this lighthouse guides sea vessels safely into the canals of New Orleans. In 1985, it was added to the National Register of Historic places.

      City Park

      Fifty percent larger than Central Park in New York City, City Park in New Orleans is one of the most visited urban parks in the United States. It is home to Live Oaks, which are characteristic trees of Louisiana.
