        In general, I don't think the trip was well planned. There was a lot of down time especially in Natchez and Lafayette and sometimes in New Orleans. When you sign up for a tri,p you don't expect to have the sightseeing day ended at noon. Keep in mind the trip included seniors and they like to have things planned. If this had been my first trip,I would never return. Very very disappointed.

        Going to the cooking class in New Orleans was a nice touch. We also enjoyed riding on the steamboat.

        The trip was excellent with (personal details removed by Feefo), our guide, doing a fine job. Great itinerary, bus and bus driver. The weather was turning bad as we were leaving but was good while we were participating. This was our fifth trip with Collette and all have been great.

        The trip was excellent with (personal details removed by Feefo), our guide, the itinerary, the bus and driver all great. The weather was good until the day we departed and then heavy rain and tornadoes in the area made us thankful our trip was lucky.
