About
Tour New Orleans’ top sights and cruise down the Mississippi on a historic steamboat with this "Super Saver" combo. Explore the famed French Quarter and beyond to see areas, like Audubon Park and the mansions of the Garden District, that many visitors miss. Then venture outside city limits onboard an authentic riverboat while live jazz or calliope music (seasonal) and an optional Creole meal add to the ambiance. The Steamboat NATCHEZ is taking some time off, but her sister vessel will be taking her place. You’ll get the same authentic riverboat experience.

What to expect
  • Begin your coach tour of New Orleans in the French Quarter, where you'll see French and Spanish heritage buildings right next to voodoo shops, Creole courtyards, and blues clubs. Continue along the route of the St. Charles Avenue streetcar to admire the stately mansions and leafy avenues of the Garden District, City Park, and other charming areas that many tourists never see.

You'll get the same authentic riverboat experience as you cruise past the shoreline and the battlefield where pirate Jean Lafitte helped defeat the British army. Step into the pilot house to see the inner workings of the paddlewheel, and listen to live jazz (seasonal) or the whistling tunes of the steam-powered calliope. For an additional fee, enjoy a delicious Louisiana-style buffet of Creole favorites right onboard the ship.

Skip It, There's Other Things To Do
Booked on TA, but there was no place to order the buffet lunch on the cruise. Bought the lunch separately the day before the cruise and it cost an extra $4 (for a total of $17 per). The morning City was OK but rather hurried since three people were more than 15 minutes late and we had to wait for them. We were supposed to be back in time for the cruise at 11 but didn't get back till 11:25. By the time we boarded the vessel it was 11:30. We were then informed that we had 30 minutes to eat in the supposedly all you can eat buffet. Felt like I was back in the military trying to wolf down my food before I got booted out of the dining hall. The food was mediocre at best. The catfish was tough as shoe leather - how can you get make catfish that tough?? The only decent things were the rice and beans and the bread pudding.

The vessel was extremely crowded and it was next to impossible to get a good seat on deck unless you went down to the lowest deck. Even then it was a bit crowded.

The whole thing was stressful and unfulfilling. 😐

Awesome opportunity to see the city!
Nov. 2019 • Couples
The city tour was an excellent way to get a feel for the great city that is New Orleans in just 2 hours. If you’re not used to all the walking a city offers then I highly recommend. You get several chances to get off the bus an explore a graveyard, experience the local vegetation and grab a beignet at the famous Cafe Du Monde. There is no way to see everything this tour offers if you opt to explore on your own. Our guide Liz was extremely informative and knowledgeable on the area and you couldn’t ask for a better driver then Duane. We highly recommend!

Oct. 2019
This four-hour tour is a great way to see a lot of New Orleans including the river in a short time. Our guide was knowledgeable and provided many tidbits that piqued our interest for further exploration. The first two hours were on land, then we boarded the steamboat for the last two hours. I wish we could have had a bit longer on land and a bit shorter time on the river, but enjoyed the whole experience regardless.

total relaxation!

Loved the history on the city tour, and relaxed so well on the riverboat! I recommend this for anyone! I didnt have the indoor luncheon on the riverboat, rather I ate roast beef sandwich from their snack bar--AWESOME! We will do this one again!

Sep. 2019 • Friends
I very much enjoyed this combination tour. The Super City part of the tour was interesting and informative. I had been expecting a lot of overlap from a similar tour we had taken, but the route and information varied from the other. I really enjoyed the cemetery stop, especially since another tour we had hoped to take fell through.

The Natchez part of the expedition was also very good. We didn't eat on board, but the drink menu was extensive. The narration was informative here also, but at times was a little difficult to hear (my only complaint). They also offered the opportunity to view the engine room. The jazz part of the cruise added to the relaxation of being on the river.

City tour guide was very informative and interacted with all of us. We enjoyed the cruise and the historical information from the guide. The buffet was good--especially the fish! Do recommend bringing a hat and water as the weather is very warm and humid!

We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise! Although it was very hot we had plenty of water available to drink (at a reasonable cost!) and found some shade on the boat. The narrators on the motor tour and cruise were both extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. I never thought I'd be taking photos in a cemetery but that was a very interesting part of the trip! The stop at the city park was great too. Overall, I would highly recommend this trip and this vendor!
