Directions: DRIVING to the French Quarter from the WEST (airport) on Interstate 10: Take I-10 East toward downtown. When the interstate splits at the I-610 interchange, stay RIGHT on I-10, and follow the New Orleans Business District signs. Just before the Superdome, the Interstate splits again (I-10 EAST and I-10West). You want to REMAIN ON I-10 EAST, so stay in the right lane and follow I-10 EAST (exit only) sign to Slidell. After you pass the Superdome, take 235A to merge onto Basin St/Orleans Ave. toward Vieux Carre. Continue to follow Basin St. Turn left onto Conti St. Turn right onto Decatur. At N. Claiborne, 1st BIG street and traffic light after exit ramp, turn RIGHT onto Esplanade. STAY on Esplanade Avenue to next traffic light, N. Rampart. Take a right on N. Rampart DRIVING to the French Quarter from the EAST on Interstate 10 or I-59: After you come across the twin spans from Slidell, near the industrial canal, be SURE you DO NOT accidentally take the I-10 bypass: I 610. STAY ON I-10. Take the St. Bernard Avenue exit off I-10 (exit 236-C). At the end of the exit (street level), turn LEFT at the traffic light.

You can cancel up to 24 hours in advance of the experience for a full refund.
I would suggest bringing a small snack like granola bar or trail mix just to give a boost for the last few miles.
If you have 3 hours to spare, and you want to do more than walk around NOLA, hope on a tour and enjoy your day.
I would highly recommend this tour as the ride through New Orleans is lovely.
