New Orleans City and Katrina Recovery Private Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
What to Expect
Traveling via the tour van allows you to see so much more of the city since many other larger vehicles are not allowed to go deep into the French Quarter, the 9th Ward, or the Garden District. On this private tour, interaction is easy, since we operate with smaller vehicles. The environment here will allow you to sit back, relax, and feel comfortable. We love questions so please ask as many as you want. We can pick you up right in front of any New Orleans Metro Area Downtown/French Quarter/Warehouse District hotel. We will drop you off back at your hotel or any Downtown New Orleans destination. 

Some of the places you'll see include French Quarter, Jackson Square, Saint Louis Cathedral, French Market, Frenchmen Street, Marigny Neighborhood, ByWater, 9th Ward, Musician's Village, Treme Neighborhood, Esplanade Avenue, Bayou Saint John, City Park, Lake Pontchartrain, 17th Street Canal, 1 of 4 Hurricane Katrina Breach Points, Unique/Historic Above Ground Cemetery, Carrollton Avenue, Oldest Streetcar in the World, Saint Charles Avenue, Tulane and Loyola Universities, Uptown, Garden District, Famous/Historic Homes, Magazine Street, National WWII Museum, and the Arts/Warehouse District.

Teddy provided the perfect soundtrack to our family private tour of New Orleans. This was my second time using Celebration Tours and they do not disappoint. I see myself taking the tour a third time as there is always something new to discover.

We were undecided about the day's activities and lucked upon this tour. This turned out to be the highlight of our girls' trip to New Orleans. Oz was a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend this tour.
