Program #21665RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
If you’re looking for a more flexible schedule with ample independent time and several meals on your own, then our FLEX learning adventures are made for you.
It’s the New Orleans of your imagination: the sound of Jazz drifting up Bourbon Street, a nearly miraculous bowl of gumbo, the charm of a Garden District mansion. Join us for an unforgettable stay in the Crescent City as you hear, taste and see all that New Orleans is famous for and learn about the intriguing side of the city that few outsiders know. Discover the literary landmarks of Tennessee Williams, meet a Mardi Gras Indian, learn the secrets of creole cooking from a local chef and much more. You’ll have plenty of time on your own to stroll Bourbon Street, walk the levee, eat beignets and Muffaletta sandwiches or ride a streetcar named Desire.


Highlights

• Walk with an expert through the French Quarter and explore the Garden District on foot, then use your included streetcar ticket to delve deeper into locales of your choosing.
• A performance at a New Orleans jazz club included in your program provides a primer on the city’s world-famous music scene that prepares you for independent discovery of the city’s many musical gems.
• Enjoy a cooking demonstration as you dine at the New Orleans School of Cooking, and get recommendations for further culinary explorations from experts and longtime residents.

Program Notes

You may enjoy one of our easier paced, more inclusive programs, "Signature City New Orleans: An Unforgettable City of Mystery and Intrigue" (#2856) at the same hotel or "Signature City New Orleans: America's City of History, Culture and Celebration" (#1475), a lower priced program six blocks from the French Quarter.

Activity Notes

Amount of walking and standing varies with your level of exploration. Walking is on city streets and uneven surfaces such as cobblestones.
