New Orleans Group Experiences

New Orleans Tours and Experiences

Crescent City is one of the country’s most popular destinations for group travel, and it’s largely due to the tempting array of group activities in New Orleans. The motto here is “Laissez les bons temps rouler,” or, “Let the good times roll,” and it’s easy to have a good time in this city. If you’re planning on visiting with coworkers, clients, friends, family, or anything in between, the sales teams at our welcoming properties will be happy to help you plan the perfect itinerary for your group. Take a look at a few recommended activities below:

Explore the French Quarter

Whether you opt for a historical walking tour, a private haunted tour of the Bourbon Orleans Hotel, or a roundup of the area’s foodie favorites, experiencing the iconic Vieux Carré is an absolute must. There’s so much to see here — and indeed, so many hidden gems — that it helps to go with a guide.

For team building, make Creole specialties at a New Orleans cooking class or enjoy a private catered suite at one of our French Quarter balcony suites. A whole range of options are available, so speak to a member of our sales teams and find the right option for your group.

Visit a Plantation

There are quite a few historic plantations around the city, and these are some of the most popular New Orleans tours. This is a fantastic way to get an authentic look into the region’s past and explore the history of the South. Our very own country manor, Nottoway Plantation, is located just outside of New Orleans and is the South's largest antebellum mansion. The property offers private group tours and even hosts a popular murder-mystery dinner.
