Cajun Encounters Tour Company

is a 20 year old locally owned and operated tour company providing highly rated, comfortable, fun, and educational tours of the swamps, city, cemeteries, and plantations in and around New Orleans. We recruit and train the most knowledgeable local tour guides and boat captains in the city. We design our boats and buses to be comfortable and safe, providing an unparalleled experience of the city. As a family company we strive to give our guests the most authentic unique experience we can offer.
Swamp Tours:

Take a guided tour of the famous Honey Island Swamp. You’ll glide through gator territory and hear all about the swamp and its natural inhabitants from our highly knowledgeable and certified authentic local captains. See alligators and wildlife up close and personal as you explore narrow slews that only our boats are built to navigate. You will experience the natural beauty of the wetlands that only Louisiana can offer.

Plantation Tours:

Step back in time and explore two of New Orleans’ most famous plantations: Oak Alley Plantation, an Antebellum Plantation, and Laura Plantation, a Creole Plantation. We’ll pick you up from your hotel and take you down the historic Mississippi River Road in the comfort of our air conditioned, air ride buses.  Walk through one of the United States’s most troubled historical times, and see the reality of how slavery and the slave trade shaped the South.

City Tours: We’ll take you to all the must-see landmarks on your list, including the French Quarter, Garden District, Marigny, and more. Our buses are designed for your supreme comfort with powerful air conditioning, air ride technology, and seamless windows for the best views. Make sure that you bring your camera because there are endless photo opportunities as the beautiful architecture that makes New Orleans the most unique American city.

If you want to experience New Orleans, Cajun Encounters Tour Company is dedicated to showing you the best the city has to offer.
