This experience was very lovely! I did not do the lunch but from what I saw they had some great food. This is a great activity for a family event, couples day out, or even just something to do to get away. The only thing I would say is if you are not from New Orleans, make a plan to park and make a plan to arrive early. personally, I would use an Uber to get to the activity unless you're willing to pay for parking.
Our tour guide Charles was awesome. His knowledge and humor set the tone of the tour. Highly recommend him.
I love everything, so relaxing the food and drink good. People who works there so nice thank you
