Itinerary

Day 1 Houston-New Orleans

We will depart in the morning and start the tour!

When we reach Oak Alley Plantation, a U.S. National Historic Landmark located at the west suburban of New Orleans, our attention, right away, would be attracted to the astonishing beauty that the plantation presents. Visitors may even feel that they were taken into the scene of “Gone with Wind”. The master’s big house is contrasting with the slave quarter nearby. Two rows of 300-years-old oak trees are not only concealing the amazing quarter-mile-long garden road, but also the bitterness of the south had borne after Civil War. The natural environment of New Orleans is as distinctive as its local culture.

We will also have a Swamp Tour, a fun adventurous yet safe boat ride that showcases the unique eco system of New Orleans region. You’ll have opportunities to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons, ibis and many other species as well as many strange looking plants living in the swamp. It is like entering a land of unknown. The natural disaster remains of Hurricane Katrina of ten years ago can still be seen. It is so fascinating of the untouched swamp wildness of the pristine beauty.

Next, we will head to our hotel for the night located at French Quarter district in New Orleans. Guests can enjoy the rest of your day exploring the area. You can find a live jazz performance bar around Bourbon Street; enjoy a cup of coffee and Beignets at the famous Café De Monde; or have some Cajun crawfish and fresh oyster for dinner. Visiting Jackson Square seems like a good idea too. It was built to commemorate General Andrew

Jackson. Many festivals are going on there simultaneously. The night is long, and the nightlife is on.

Hotel: Courtyard by Marriott French Quarter/ Hotel 504 French Quarter or equivalent

Day 2 New Orleans-Houston

Enjoy your breakfast before we start the tour!

First thing in the morning we are going to visit the National World War II Museum, formerly known as the D- Day Museum, a military history museum emphasizes the American experience in World War II.

Around noon we will take you to the Mississippi Steamed Jazz Cruise. Your two-hour cruise from the heart of the French Quarter shows you why the city was founded on the beautiful crescent of the lower Mississippi River. New Orleans is an important historical city in South US and one of the major ports, also well-known as the birthplace of jazz. The live Jazz performance on the steamboat will make you an unforgettable trip.
