New Orleans Tours
 

Riverboat Tours

At one time, as recently as only a century ago, one of the only ways to get to New Orleans was by boat. The Mississippi River, with tributaries stretching into 30+ states, was the city’s “front door,” with paddlewheel steamboats bringing passengers and cargo onto the bustling riverfront. The age of the steamboats was one of the most colorful in our nation’s history; a time when the country was expanding its boundaries and moving goods from one faraway location to another by waterborne craft.

That colorful age can still be experienced in New Orleans aboard a steam-driven river paddlewheeler. A tour aboard an authentic 19th century riverboat is, for many, the highlight of their New Orleans experience. Tours leave from the riverfront area adjacent to Woldenberg Park on a regular basis, offering scenic views of the city from the water and delicious buffet lunches. Choose a riverboat tour that’s best for you from the listings below.
