New Orleans Holiday

5 days, 4 nights

New Orleans has so many historic sites, famous landmarks and well-known neighborhoods, each with their own history and cultural influences, that it can be difficult deciding where to begin! Start your New Orleans Holiday with a city tour to experience the French Quarter, Jackson Square, the Garden District, and all the other “must see” destinations in one of America’s most colorful and diverse cities. And don’t forget about the cuisine! Visitors keep returning for dishes ranging from Cajun specialties to local seafood to internationally-known delicacies. Take a class at a cooking school for added insights that will help you take the taste of New Orleans back home.

But there’s plenty more to see beyond the city of New Orleans. A swamp tour offers a leisurely cruise through the mysterious bayous and backwaters, where you can get up close and personal with 10-foot alligators, long-legged waterfowl and exotic subtropical flowers. On the plantation tour, visit luscious gardens and authentic antebellum mansions, then relax in a rocking chair on the porch of a historic antebellum mansion while gazing at the murky Mississippi River.

Add on a day trip to nearby Lafayette –the capital of “Cajun Country” in the heart of the Arcadian region. Blessed with picturesque bayous and marshes, Lafayette seasons its rich French heritage with Spanish, Creole, Cajun and American influences. Residents whose families have lived here for generations honor their unique past with an infectious “joie de vivre” attitude that quickly makes newcomers feel right at home.
