The Louisiana State Capitol is the tallest capitol in the U.S., The Observation Deck on the 27th floor overlooks the city of Baton Rouge at a height of 350 feet. The views of the gardens are spectacular.

Next we will head to our hotel for the night located at French Quarter district in New Orleans. Guests can enjoy the rest of your day exploring the area. You can find a live jazz performance bar around Bourbon Street; enjoy a cup of coffee and Beignets at the famous Café De Monde; or have some Cajun crawfish and fresh oyster for dinner. Visiting Jackson Square seems like a good idea too. It was built to commemorate General Andrew Jackson. Many festivals are going on there simultaneously. The night is long, and the nightlife is on.

Enjoy your breakfast before heading out for today's tour of Oak Alley Plantation and the Louisiana swampland.

There are plenty of tours in New Orleans, but only the Mardi Gras World tour (admission not included) offers a real, behind-the-scenes look at how Mardi Gras is made. The secret mask of Mardi Gras will be took off with an all-access tour, leading us through the massive studio where these magnificent floats are built from the ground up.

Immerse yourself in all the faded grandeur and antebellum atmosphere of New Orleans' fabled Garden District. See the filming locations of Hollywood movies like Interview with a Vampire and Double Jeopardy, and hear an entertaining tale or two about New Orleans' most noteworthy deceased residents.

When we reach Oak Alley Plantation (admission not included), a U.S. National Historic Landmark located at the west suburban of New Orleans, our attention, right away, would be attracted to the astonishing beauty that the plantation presents. Visitors may even feel that they were taken into the scene of “Gone with Wind”. The master’s big house is contrasting with the slave quarter nearby. Two rows of 300-years-old oak trees are not only concealing the amazing quarter-mile-long garden road, but also the bitterness of the south had borne after Civil War. The natural environment of New Orleans is as distinctive as its local culture.

We will also have a Swamp Tour (admission not included), an adventurous yet safe boat ride that showcases the unique eco system of New Orleans region. You’ll have opportunities to see alligators, snakes, turtles, egrets, herons, ibis and many other species as well as many strange looking plants living in the swamp. It is like entering a land of unknown. The natural disaster remains of Hurricane Katrina of ten years ago can still be seen. It is so fascinating of the untouched swamp wildness of the pristine beauty.
