The trip takes a couple hours with a stop and the Chalmette Battlefield. The tour is mostly the history of the battle of New Orleans, with dialog the entire way. You get about 20 minutes at the battlefield to explore and take pictures and ask...More

Nice paddle boat ride with good narration. One stop to see battlefield and bites from ants. Not scenic because it is a port so don’t expect beautiful historic plantations with trees dripping with Spanish moss lining the waterfront.

Well worth the money, very informative and Charles kept us on the edge of our seats. Highly recommend taking the historic cruise, a lot of info packed into a 2 1/2 hour tour.

Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other
parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title
might suggest that this area is all about business and
little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you

touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
