We went on the 2 pm cruise I didn’t really think about it at the time because it was overcast but my husband and I both came home sun burned. Make sure to wear sunscreen. The tour guide Charles was fantastic. He had everyone even the children captivated the whole. Definitely will go again.

Charles - Great Guide

We took the Sunday 12pm experience. Charles was fabulous! Very informative, funny and full of non-fictional stories. Even shared personal experiences of his families times in NOLA. Truly appreciated the dinner suggestion of Adolfo's local secret. Great meal experience to end our NOLA trip.

The trip on the Creole Queen was very good, nice buffet lunch and excellent guide on the boat, he was very knowledgeable and gave a really good commentary. Plenty time to get off and visit the battlefield. The reason for only 3 stars is when we got to collect our tickets we weren’t booked in and the boat was booked out on a private charter. They did let us on a later sailing, but as we were on a cruise and had limited time it did mess up our day.

Our guide, Winton was so exceptionally informative! His education is in history so we enjoyed all the historical info & wished the ride would have been longer. Even though the weather was threatening the crew did exceptional.
