This tour does not operate on Mardi Gras, Thanksgiving Day or Christmas Day.
On this small group tour, you'll have the chance to learn the history of the original city, the French Quarter, and why it was built at this particular location along the Mississippi River. You will drive past an actual levee that “breached” and see the resulting devastation that displaced hundreds of thousands of U.S. residents. In addition, you will learn the direct connection between America’s disappearing coastal wetlands, oil & gas pipelines, levee protection and hurricane destruction.
Some of the sights include Gentilly, St. Bernard, and the Ninth Ward neighborhoods. 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. For example, did you know that 30% of the seafood (fish, crabs, shrimp, oysters, and crawfish) harvested in the lower 48 states comes from the coastal wetlands in South Louisiana?
Hotel pick-up not included; meeting location in the French Quarter will be specified on your E-Ticket.
