I took this tour in 2008. Interesting to see progress, or lack therein, in resolving issues.

John was an incredible tour guide! He put such a personal touch on the catastrophic event. Despite the devastation, the citizens of New Orleans showed remarkable courage and resourcefulness! Would do this tour again and again!

ITINERARY

Get an eyewitness account of the devastating events surrounding Hurricane Katrina, the worst natural (or man-made?) disaster on American soil.

Learn the history of the original city of New Orleans, the French Quarter, and why it was built at this particular location along the Mississippi River. We’ll drive past an actual levee that "breached" as a result of Hurricane Katrina and see the resulting devastation that displaced hundreds of thousands of U.S. residents. The direct connection between America’s disappearing coastal wetlands, oil & gas pipelines, levee protection and hurricane destruction will be explained. The tour is narrated by licensed tour guides who are local New Orleanians with their own personal account of Hurricane Katrina. This tour travels through neighborhoods such as Lakeview, Gentilly, New Orleans East, St. Bernard and the Ninth Ward.

You’ll be amazed at the volume and variety of products "offloaded" in the multimodal port of New Orleans, the second largest port in the country, and then distributed to your hometown. Did you know that 30% of the seafood (fish, crabs, shrimp, oysters, and crawfish) harvested in the lower 48 states comes from the coastal wetlands in South Louisiana? After this tour, you’ll have a better understanding of events pre- and post-Katrina and the "Rebirth of New Orleans".
