This Private Driving tour cost is a minimum of $200 flat fee for 2 hours with up to 6 persons. Tour begins at visitors center that has a huge map, which is an aerial view from 10,000 feet above our city. From here we'll show how the river played a key role in the creation of the colony, as well as key landmarks, the flood control systems, the parks, our Lake and many other unique qualities of our city. Next we go to one the most iconic cemeteries in the world, then see our city park with various art exhibits, amazing live oak trees, and stop for coffee and beignets. Now we drive up the beautiful bayou St. John to Lake Pontchartrain which I call the Wow factor, where we get out for photos of your group, and see the lake up close. Now you can go to the Katrina affected area or we'll skip this part and go directly to see the mansions and estates in the university and garden district areas. We'll still see an example of how some of our neighborhoods are below sea level. Next we'll see some of the most opulent Mansions and Estates in America. Once in the opulence of the university and Garden districts area, we talk about the citizens in the 19th century. We'll discuss the diversity of our citizens here, the Cajun and Creole cultures, our port, see a 600 year old oak tree, next we will talk about Mardis Gras and more.
