With diverse cultural influences, including African, French and Anglo, this lively destination has retained its unique atmosphere and traditions. With such a rich heritage and distinct charm, there's no shortage of things to do on New Orleans escorted tours. From street performers and Mardi Gras to serene cathedrals tours, the Big Easy has it all.
The famous French Quarter is a popular first stop. Embark on a walking tour or a bus tour of this historic neighbourhood and marvel at its picture-perfect colourful buildings with iron balconies, or stop by in the evening to take advantage of its lively nightlife spots. The Garden District is home to oak-lined avenues, grand mansions and local streetcars, while the nearby Louisiana Swampland offers swamp tours and opportunities to sample Creole cuisine. Hunt down ghouls on a quirky ghost tour, spot the painted wooden houses of Tremé or soak up the atmosphere at Preservation Hall, one of the city's oldest music venues. Whether you like beautiful architecture, great food or rock 'n' roll, our holidays to New Orleans and Memphis offer a guided tour of the best of the South.
The Deep South is known for its deliciously hearty cuisine
Formed from a unique blend of Caribbean, African and European influences, it has something for everyone. Traditional dishes include gumbo, a filling soup made with chicken, seafood and vegetables, and jambalaya, a rice dish comparable to paella.
For a sweet finish to your meal try Doberge cake, a layered dessert with a chocolate or lemon filling, or bananas foster, which consists of sautéed bananas doused in rum and then flambeed at the table.
To experience a taste of nightlife from days gone by on your New Orleans holidays, drop in to Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop Bar in the city's French Quarter. Originally built as a house in the 1770s, it is one of the oldest buildings in New Orleans.
