Coming to New Orleans for Jazz Fest? Welcome!!

Whether the Crescent City’s calling your name, or Bruce Springsteen’s the one you “can’t miss,” Jazz Fest is the place to be this weekend. (Next weekend too!)

Local weathermen are noting some “cooler than normal” temperatures, and the food is set to be as hot and spicy as ever. How perfect!

On behalf of Cajun Encounters, welcome, all of you, to our beloved city. We know that the next two weeks are going to be a blast, and we look forward to having visitors in our “home.”

If you’ve allotted any extra time in your party agenda to check out the city, it is highly recommended. We’re offering special discounts for our New Orleans City Tours, Honey Island Swamp Tours, and Plantation Tours if you book online.

If you have questions about anything at all, feel free to reach out.

Again – welcome!!

Jazz Fest Shuttles Available THIS WEEKEND

This Friday through Sunday, our sister company, Cajun Encounters Travels will be lending Jazz Festers a hand!

Special shuttles will be available to get to and from the fest from downtown all weekend.  Shuttles will run between the hours of 10 AM – 8 PM each day, and will be available for boarding with the purchase of a wristband from Huck Finn’s Cafe.

Happy Festing!!!

We’re Getting Excited for Jazz Fest

Well, it’s surely “festival season” down here in New Orleans. That’s what locals like to call this time of year, and yes, it is our favorite!

This Friday marks the start of The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, with acts like Wyclef Jean, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstafunk and Coco Robicheaux taking the stage.

If you’re coming to town for the festival, remember to rest up, wear sunscreen, and have fun during your stay in the Big Easy.

As for us, the team here may take some time after our tours to take in the music and atmosphere. How could you not?

Remember, we can help with any transportation needs throughout your stay, and will be on standby with some fantastic tours of New Orleans to help you get the most out of your vacation here! Come pay us a visit!!
