Although it’s impossible to do it all in one visit to New Orleans, a bus or van tour can help. Touring by bus or van is the perfect way to get an informed overview that will help you pick places you want to explore more as your visit continues. Hop-on, hop-off buses, with open-air rooftop seating, run along a loop of many of the city’s most popular sights. There are also tours that take visitors to plantations along River Road, to swamps and across bayous as well as around New Orleans neighborhoods and to cemeteries, historical battlefields and other sights.
Touring by bus or van can be ideal for families and large group, providing commentary and comfort while visiting many sights. This list offers plenty of options.
