Couldn’t hear the speaker well inside the boat. Long way to walk to battlefield expected more at the battle site.

Being on the river

Seeing the skyline of New Orleans from the river is beautiful. Being on the same river with the huge ships and the little barges is fun. Sitting on the upper deck was pleasant. One thing that could be improved is that you must take your printed voucher to the ticket booth to get a ticket and wait in the rain. A better system is needed.

Good way to kill a couple hours

We had a couple hours to kill so we took this Paddleboat ride on the mighty Mississippi. Our historian was very well rehearsed in his presentation. While he had a lot of history to present and did it in an entertaining way, the trip was kind of lackluster. Would still be a fun trip for a family with kids.

Great tour, great history and kudos to the Historian speaker. Keep it fun and light. It’s a must to see some history and not just drink away your time.
