While our Heart of the City tour focuses on the historic core of the city, the Creole Odyssey tour will start by examining that same core more briefly, and then move on to track the city's expansion into its surrounding bayous. Enjoy an extended ride under the shade of regal Live Oak trees as we journey down the opulent Esplanade Ave. You will cruise past swampy vistas in City Park, our largest public park. You'll traverse Bayou St. John, a historic waterway that was used by Native Americans and French settlers alike, and learn why it was so instrumental in our city's founding.
