We had a great time on the Creole Queen. We have been to New Orleans several times, but never on a boat on the Mississippi. This was a great trip. We did the history tour to the Chalamette Battlefield and Charles the historian was AMAZING....More

Loved the Creole Queen! So relaxing & informational. Battlefield was great & the food was probably the best I had in New Orleans! Thank you for such a great experience!

The tour was wonderful and educational. The buffet was good and the bartender kept the mimosas coming (unlimited for $10). The narrator, Charles, was great. He narrated while we had stopped at the battle site and he was not only witty but enthusiastic. My family...More

We had a great time. Very informed staff for the true history. One downer was there was a lot of pork in the lunch.

Central Business District
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
away from the Central Business District. The CBD
offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be
touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the
world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts

Yes, you can go inside the house but the small museum and the maps along the American rampart line are far better. The house is a reconstruction of a typical mansion. There is nothing inside of it. If you want to see the... More

As we were on foot and walked from our hotel in Bourbon St, I cannot advise you about parking. There is a large Outlet Mall right next to where you board the boat, so i would think there would be plenty of parking in that... More
