Your Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival in Louisiana 
Upon arrival, pick up your car & start your trip through Lousiana, making your way to the Oak Alley Plantation.

Located in the Saint James Parish, Oak Alley is a much-photographed plantation that combines architectural splendour and the natural wonder of its 300-year-old oak trees. Spend time strolling beneath the canopy of these trees, and learn about the rich history and culture of this southern estate.

Overnight at Oak Valley Plantation.
Day 2: Baton-Rouge
Drive to Bâton-Rouge, Louisiana's capital city, and find an abundance of attractions: a lively music scene, fabulous dining and shopping - there's so much to explore! Baton Rouge is Louisiana's Art Deco state capital. The city buzzes with the energy of youth while holding fast to its traditions in Southern lifestyle and historic sites.

Overnight at Holiday Inn Centre Ville.

Day 3: Houma 
Drive to Houma where you will find a network of bayous and shipping channels converge. This is the perfect spot to explore Lousiana's famous waterways.

Overnight with a Cajun family with breakfast & dinner included.
Day 4: New Orleans
Drive to downtown New Orleans to drop off your car rental, before being transferred to the city centre & the French Quarter. Art lovers will find plenty of inspiration in the French Quarter's galleries! The New Orleans Museum of Art stands in beautiful City Park. In the trendy Warehouse District, the Ogden Museum of Southern Art presents one of the largest collections of Southern works in the country.

Spend your evening sailing up the Mississippi on an iconic steamboat. This offer includes a Jazz Dinner Cruise.

Overnight at Holiday Inn Express New Orleans.
Day 5: Walking tour of the French Quarter & the Garden District
Architecture defines New Orleans. The famous French Quarter, with its graceful iron balconies, wooden shutters and hidden courtyards, is an icon among the country’s architectural landmarks, even as it remains a vibrant residential and commercial neighbourhood. The Quarter is famous for great live music, exquisite dining, and its proximity to one of America’s great rivers.

On the opposite side of the downtown area, the historic Garden District awaits. Visitors can walk past block after block of grand, plantation-style homes rich in the lacey ironwork and architectural detail that characterised 19th-century New Orleans.

Overnight at Holiday Inn Express New Orleans.
Day 6: Swamp and Bayou Tour + Ghost and Spirits Tour
Embark on a Swamp & Bayou Tour through the timeless beauty of Southern Louisiana. Afterwards, you will be taken on a 'Ghosts & Spirits' night tour so you can experience the darker side of 'the most haunted city in America'.

Overnight at Holiday Inn Express New Orleans.

Day 7: Explore New Orleans
Spend your final day delving into this vibrant city. New Orleans’ charm stems from many sources, but most importantly, its cultural diversity. The result is a depth of culture that marks everyday life. It’s what makes the food, music and character of New Orleans so distinctive: Think Oysters Bienville and Shrimp Creole; Bananas Foster and soft-shell crab po-boys; the Neville Brothers, Wynton Marsalis and Harry Connick Jr.; Bourbon Street, Tipitina’s and Mardi Gras.

Overnight at Holiday Inn Express New Orleans.

Day 8: Departure
After breakfast, you will be transferred to the airport in time for your flight home.
