“Great walking tour with April!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

There is a free walking tour offered to the first 25 people who show up every day at the visitor center on Decatur street. Ranger April was very knowledgable and a great tour guide! we learned a lot about the history and topography of NO.

“Great place to hike through Louisiana nature at its best!”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Nice hiking trails, beautiful flowers in the spring, wildlife, and gators almost close enough to touch ... check it out. Jean Lafitte Preserve is worth the trip to the Westbank of New Orleans. Spend an hour or all day! It's free!

“Not a lot to see here”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We took a river cruise down to see the battlefield, and there wasn't much to see or do. The ranger spoke the entire time we were there so if you didn't get up and walk around you really didn't get to see much. The cruise was a nice break but could have done without the ranger talk and just gone into the visitor center to hear about the battle.

Highly recommend a stop here to learn more about New Orleans. There is a daily tour at 9:30 that is free and really great.

“A stopping point”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

This is more a working center for information about the area. Not much to see here except a place to rest if you need one. A few displays on the inside. We took the 9 am tour which was nice and free. I wish there had been a little more here.
