The Hotel Tour
a.k.a The Mississippi March
Racontours is proud to present our latest research project turned tour, The Mississippi March: which is a tour of grand and unique hotels, hoteliers and their histories past and present. As the name implies, we will be covering some distance on this tour as we traverse streets, alleys, lobbies, stairs and of course, bars and clubs! So, a modicum of fitness will be required of those who choose to participate in this experience of learning all about the long life of lodging under Lake Pontchartrain.

As with our other tours, we will begin at 10:00 a.m. and initially, I have chosen six hotels in the Vieux Carré, and six in the Central Business District. But along the way I intend to throw in four clubs and at least two bars, a streetcar ride and a few surprises! If all goes well, we should conclude around 2:ish in the afternoon and as we move, I will point out potential eateries along the route.

This tour is rich with architecture, banking history and political intrigue.

As always, I will bring my walking stick stools, water and a snack, but You should definitely have comfortable walking shoes and whatever You think You may need to stay cool, such as a hat, shades or sun screen.

The cost of the tour will be $45 per person. 

To reserve with us, please email us at racontoursinnola@gmail.com

Thanks again for Your consideration, and we look forward to the opportunity to entertain Y'all with yet another fantastic way to see and enjoy the Île d'Orléans Du Sud!
