“storytelling + cool breeze makes for great morning”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2012

Our park ranger started the tour promptly at 9:30am and cooked up an excellent mix of history, culture, and storytelling for our group. She was knowledgeable and funny. Don't stress that this tour doesn't take place right in Jackson Square. The breeze off the Mississippi cools you as you enjoy the history of New Orleans.

“This is very near my home.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

Be prepared for heat and humidity, but its worth it. Also, you may need some mosquito repellant. You will certainly see the typical trees of SE Louisiana in a completely natural setting. There are usually several alligators along the paths you will walk. You must be careful not to let small children run along down the path, they could happen upon an alligator or fall into the water if they are careless.

“Beautiful Place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

The Chalmette Battlefield and National Cemetary is worth the drive. Abour 30 minutes outside of New Orleans and on the Mississippi River.
