Designated Pick Up Spots ONLY For French Quarter Fest, April 9-12, 2015

It’s almost time for French Quarter Festival!

For all of you in town during the fest – which is this Thursday, April 9th – Sunday, April 12th – thank you for coming to the “quarter.” Remember to have fun, to wear sunscreen, and to save time for a Honey Island Swamp Tour, a New Orleans City Cemetery Tour, or a Plantation Tour!

During this time of year, the city closes access to many streets in the area and restricts access to other passageways. They do this for your safety, and safety is something we at Cajun Encounters wholeheartedly support.

Because of these street closings, we have enacted our DESIGNATED PICK UP LOCATION PLAN.

Throughout Thursday, April 9th – Sunday, April 12th, we will provide pick up ONLY at the following locations:

  1. The Ritz-Carlton (921 Canal St.)
  2. The Astor Crowne Plaza (739 Canal St)
  3. The New Orleans Marriott (555 Canal St)

When making reservations online, please be sure to choose one of these three locations to ensure that we connect.

When giving us a call, we will work with you to find the spot nearest to your hotel.

For questions or to find out which spot is closest to you, just check out Google Maps or give us a call.

Thank you for your patience as we work to accommodate everyone with the world class service our team is known for. Happy festing! And happy touring!!!

Saying “Goodbye” to Summer

It’s hard to tell now, but the Crescent City is gearing up for Autumn.

Within weeks, the warm weather will start to feel breezy, the Honey Island Swamp will see migratory birds, the sun will set sooner, and tank tops will be replaced by (at least) long sleeved shirts.

What does this mean? Fun and excitement, of course!!

Whether you live here, or are in town for the Voodoo Music Experience, for Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas in New Orleans, there won’t be a shortage of things to do.

The Cajun Encounters team has been hard at work to prepare, too, ordering festive things for the gift shop, preparing inventory, and drilling down some extra fun things to suggest to our guests while they are in town.

How about you? What do you plan to do when the weather changes? Whatever it may be, remember that Cajun Encounters is here to help with your transportation, group tours, and dining!
