 Tour Itinerary

 

Day 1: New Orleans, Louisiana - Tour Begins

Step into a cultural melting pot in the “Jazz Capital of the World:” New Orleans! Experience everything about this soulful city that abounds with rich history, mouth-watering Cajun and Creole cuisine, and of course, an incomparable soundtrack. In December, the city sparkles even brighter with the pageantry of the season, when the city rolls out the red (and green) carpet!

Accommodation: Royal Sonesta Hotel

 

Day 2: French Quarter

This morning, visit the Hermann-Grima house for an old-fashioned Christmas. Learn about Creole holiday traditions as you admire the home as it appeared in the 19th century. Afterwards, introduce yourself to the city’s famous French Quarter on a walking tour that features the majestic St. Louis Cathedral, one of the city’s most recognizable landmarks. You may even hear some carolers filling Jackson Square with song as we make our way to Pontalba, the oldest apartment building in the French Quarter. Dressed in their holiday finery, these are some of the most impressive historic structures in the city. Next, head over to Café Du Monde for a taste of a true New Orleans favorite – beignets! Explore Pirate’s Alley and the bustling French Marketplace, where you’ll stand in awe of a 30-foot tree topped with a Fleur de Lis and find unique Christmas gifts around every corner. Spend the afternoon strolling around the French Quarter and see the dazzling hotel lobbies and antique shops on Royal Street. Tonight, learn how to cook for the holidays New Orleans-style! During a demonstration at the New Orleans School of Cooking, your chef reveals everything Louisiana cuisine offers. After dinner, the magic continues at Celebration in the Oaks, a New Orleans tradition, with a train ride that takes you through lit bridges, lagoons and gardens.

See the St. Louis Cemetery #3 which opened in 1854 and holds some of the most elaborate crypts found in the city’s cemeteries. Then, relax during a drive along the shoreline of Lake Pontchartrain. This romantic road eventually leads to St. Charles Avenue, whisking you past gorgeous mansions and two world-famous universities, Tulane and Loyola. Next, enjoy lunch and a holiday-themed musical revue by the Victory Belles at the National World War II Museum. After, take a walk through history to learn about the American wartime experience.

Return to the city and enjoy the rest of your day at leisure to discover more of New Orleans your way.
