See Top New Orleans Attractions

There’s so much to see and do in New Orleans, it can be hard to plan everything into one trip (and still leave yourself time to relax and enjoy a Sazerac). That’s why we’ve connected with the top attractions in the city to bring you tour packages that include our own tours, as well as highlights from our partners.

WWII Museum: The #1 attraction in New Orleans and one of the top useums in the U.S., the WWII Museum draws visitors from around the globe. Explore the many exhibits and watch “Beyond All Boundaries,” a 4-D visual experience narrated by Tom Hanks.

Louisiana Bayou: No Louisiana vacation is complete without a swamp tour, and no one does swamp tours quite like Cajun Encounters. Spend two hours on the bayou and hear all about the wildlife around you from an experienced, local boat captain.

French Quarter: See the French Quarter and surrounding neighborhoods by foot, by bus, or both! You’ll see architecture that is truly unique to New Orleans, and gain a new appreciation of the history around you after seeing the city in the company of a knowledgeable tour guide.

Plantations: Louisiana is home to a number of stunning plantations, each of which have a unique history and tour experience. Allow us to pick you up from your hotel and take you to Oak Alley: an antebellum plantation; Laura: a Creole plantation; or Whitney: a memorial to slaves of the South.
