New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) August 14, 2013
The Isle of New Orleans Tour is the newest offering by TripShock.com in an impressive lineup of city tours in The Big Easy. The 3.5 hour chartered bus tour expands upon the New Orleans Super City Tour to include narration and landmarks specific to Hurricane Katrina.
The Isle of New Orleans Tour begins in the French Quarter and winds its way through the Ninth Ward, a neighborhood devastated by flooding from multiple levee breaks during Hurricane Katrina. Tourists will then head down Espalande Avenue, visit an above ground cemetery, and stroll through City Park, a 1,300-acre urban oasis.
Guests will discover many of New Orleans’ neighborhoods, including Faubourg Marginy, Faubourg St. John, Lakeview, Carrollton, and Uptown. Tourists will learn about the history of Xavier, Tulane and Loyola Universities, all located within the city. The bus makes a stop at New Canal Lighthouse Museum on Lake Pontchartrain for a guided tour of the newly rebuilt landmark. Other attractions include Audubon Park and the beautiful architecture of the Garden District.

“Loved the tour. The New Orleans scenery was beautiful, and it was eye opening to see and hear about the devastation caused by Katrina.” –TripShock Traveler Review
“Loved it. Bus was comfortable and the driver was entertaining and knowledgeable. [The] neighborhood below sea level next to [the] dam and [the] lease info concerning burials have become conversation tidbits at my job. Really cool.” –TripShock Traveler Review
