Southwest Vacations,

Why It’s a Deal
According to a recent search on Kayak, round-trip airfare between Dallas and New Orleans starts from $274 with taxes for travel in late July (Delta). Add to that $366 per person, including taxes, for four nights at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel, and your total for air and accommodations would be $640 if booked separately. For $195 less, this package from Southwest Vacations includes a round-trip flight, four nights’ hotel, and a $25 per person exclusive discount.  

Optional activities include a tour of Oak Alley Plantation ($54 per person), a sightseeing tour of New Orleans ($31 per person), and an evening walking tour of the French Quarter ($21 per person). Adding extra nights is possible, but the cost depends on your travel dates and the difference in airfare.
