Daytime Jazz Cruise: Soar through the fascinating history of New Orleans and discover one of the most diverse and interesting cities of the United States. This tour invites you to climb aboard the traditional steamboat Natchez, the very last steamboat of its kind in New Orleans! This twist suddenly turns a regular historical tour into an exciting unparalleled experience. So hop on board and charge full speed ahead into the history-ridden regions surrounding the legendary Mississippi River.
This two hour cruise begins by slowly gliding away from the heart of the French Quarter, one of the liveliest and most popular corners of New Orleans, to then transport you along the water back into the age when cotton was as craved as gold. In the forlorn times of New Orleans ‘cottonocracy’, the days were long and the rewards for a hard day’s work, few if any. Recalling these hard past times makes one positively relish the privilege of living in our day and age.
From aboard the steamboat Natchez, you will be able to appreciate in a glance how New Orleans is one of the most active ports in the world. A steamboat floating in the middle of the Mississippi River is the best vantage point for observing the hectic mercantile activity the port is thriving with.
To make the voyage even more enjoyable, you can book a delightful lunch to enjoy while aboard the cruise. That way the beauty of the landscapes you admire throughout the journey can harmonize with the meal’s flavours.
