New Orleans Super City Tour

Come experience the beautiful and historic city of New Orleans as you tour its best landmarks. This New Orleans bus tour gives first time visitors and those who frequently come to the city an excellent taste of the best sites.

Board your bus at the Mississippi River in the French Quarter, then travel along Esplanade Avenue while learning about New Orleans' history. At St. Louis Cemetery #3, learn about the tradition of above ground burial. In City Park, cross Bayou St. John and head to Cafe du Monde, where you can purchase beignets, or go in search of your own Instagram-worthy moment. The park's museums, highlights and sculpture gardens are all tucked away among stunning lagoons, bayous, and groves of breathtaking live oaks, some of that are more than 800 years old.

Next stop, pass a post-Katrina pumping station, seafood restaurants, a marina, a historic lighthouse, and the 24 mile-long Causeway Bridge as you travel along the south shore of Lake Pontchartrain. Despite being referred to as a lake, Lake Pontchartrain is in fact one of the biggest brackish estuaries in North America, measuring 630 square miles (1600 km2) in addition to being connected to the Gulf of Mexico by freshwater rivers.

Continue to St. Charles Avenue, which is surrounded with luxurious mansions, churches, and universities like Loyola and Tulane and is where Audubon Park is located. Follow the streetcar and Mardi Gras parade routes to the Garden District for a guided tour of one of the country's best-preserved residential areas.
