See New Orleans through the Eyes of Locals!!
Get a better view of the Crescent City with Cajun Encounters. Traveling by bus, you will have several opportunities to get out and take a closer look at things like historic cemeteries, cultural centers and more. Pickup and drop-off service is included directly from your downtown hotel, and with tours departing several times a day, what could be easier?
New Orleans city tours begin at the birthplace of New Orleans – the French Quarter! As we ride through the Quarter telling you
the history of the city, our tour guides point out many locally known and loved highlights along the way including Jackson Square, the Saint Louis Cathedral and our famous French Quarter balconies.
Leaving the French Quarter, we’ll take you down creole Esplanade Avenue to the City of the Dead. See the graves of St. Louis Cemetery up close as we walk you through the well-known and highly visited New Orleans landmark.
City Park and its dueling oaks are our next stop. Along the way we will also show some of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and the rebuilding efforts that have taken place since this time.
From there we head to the “American Sector”, the New Orleans Garden District. Alive and well with its live-oak tree lined St. Charles Avenue, you will get a great sense of the luxury and extravagance of old New Orleans. This is a true step back into the antebellum era, with highlights including the former homes of author Anne Rice.
The New Orleans Warehouse & Arts District is the final leg of your New Orleans overview which includes the D-Day Museum, now known as the National World War II Museum, the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center and sites from the movie “JFK” and other box office hits.
We at Cajun Encounters hope to provide you an overview of the life, architecture and history of one of America’s greatest and most beautiful cities – New Orleans. We’re pretty sure you will agree that we have “just the thing.”
