    Plane Ride with Wine and Cheese

    Combine aerial views of New Orleans with Champagne and chocolates, or wine and cheese on this romantic VIP sightseeing flight! The 45-minute flight includes one full bottle of Champagne with chocolates, or a full bottle of wine and artisan cheese. Glide above the French Quarter and Central Business District, and see top New Orleans attractions such as Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the bayous around Mississippi River. If there's something that you would like to see instead, simply let the pilot know; the route is flexible and can be tailored to your preference. With a maximum of three passengers permitted, this is a great outing for couples or good friends. Board your sightseeing plane at the Flight Academy of New Orleans, sit in your window-side seat, and then take to the skies over the city’s sights. Gaze out of your window and watch the runway slip from your view as New Orleans’ urban sights take center stage. A maximum of three passengers are permitted per flight, making this a great way to spend quality time with a loved one or close friends. Gaze down at the French Quarter at the distinct architecture, and listen to your guide’s stories about the city and its sights. Peer past the skyscrapers of the Central Business District to see Mercedes-Benz Superdome where New Orleans Saints American football team play. Loop around the iconic stadium, and have your camera ready to capture bird’s-eye sights of the Port of New Orleans and its tailing 2-mile (3-km) wharf. Glide a short distance from downtown New Orleans to the bayous of Louisiana, the slow-moving streams of water that form around the Mississippi River. After admiring sunset views of the county’s famous wetlands, head back over the city and touch down at the start point where your VIP experience finishes. Looking for something more savory on your flight? Choose this option for a bottle of wine and cheese! One bottle of red or white wine (your choice), a block of artisan cheese, crostini, and one other snack is served per couple, so sit back, sip on the wine and nibble on the cheese as you cruise above New Orleans.

    Oak Street Food Walking Tour

    Discover New Orleans’ renowned restaurants and backstreet gems on a 3-hour food tour around Oak Street in Carrollton! With a local guide, explore the eclectic neighborhood with its thriving dining scene, and learn about the development of New Orleans’ distinct cuisine. At least half a dozen samples of both local and international dishes are included, offering enough food to make a meal. A hearty appetite is recommended as well as good walking shoes; this Carrollton food tour is done on foot. Start your tour in Carrollton, a vibrant neighborhood accessible by taking the famous St Charles Avenue trolley car from downtown or the Garden District (own expense). Meet your guide on Oak Street, and then stroll past the street’s lively bars, restaurants and live music venues to scout out the neighborhood’s beloved eateries. While New Orleans is a well-established mecca for food lovers, uptown Carrollton is becoming the hotspot for foodies in the know.

    Call in at several venues around Oak Street in Carrollton to hear about the owners’ passions for their food and sample their local specialties that many visitors miss. Dishes and venues change on occasion, but your route always includes at least six stops that collectively provide enough food and drink for a meal.

    Chow down on ‘real nawlin’ food’ at the legendary Jacque-Imo’s — a New Orleans’ institution serving stellar staples such as shrimp Creole — and get a taste for the best dishes in in town at the highly rated Cowbell. Discover Carrollton’s multicultural vibe on a visit to Chiba Samplings, the go-to place for Japanese-inspired dishes, and experience the succulent and juicy meat of Squeal BBQ, an award-winning favorite.

    No food tour is complete without a few drinks to complement the food, so follow your guide into D’Juice to sip on its fresh juices, and then follow the lead of knowing locals into Rue de La Course Coffee Shop, a bustling drink spot. Other eateries that you may visit include Oak Street Café for brunch samples, Tru Burger for delicious meat, New Orleans’ Artisan Bakery or Simpsons Antiques — a cafe-come-antique shop.

    Your 3-hour Carrollton food tour finishes back at the start point on Oak Street, leaving you perfectly placed to continue exploring the lively neighborhood. Ask your guide for recommendations; perhaps see if there's live music playing in the Maple Leaf pub, or check out places to visit independently.
