OK boat tour with a very good speech on history

The tour an views on the Mississipi river are OK but not stunning. The visit of the NO battlefield is interesting but also not dramatic. The historic speech was quite good with several interesting viewpoints about the Anglo-American wars.

It was OK, but we didn’t like the food. Few options, rice, beans, salad. The only good thing was the jambalaya.
