It’s Carnival Time at Cajun Encounters

Carnival season is in full swing down here in New Orleans, and you can certainly feel the excitement in the air.

This year, the team at Cajun Encounters took part in the Krewe of Poseidon, which had their yearly parade in Slidell, LA on January 10th.

Not only was there a float, but our Cajun Encounters bus made an appearance! Fun was had by all and there were more beads than the eye can see.

In the coming weeks, we know the Mardi Gras spirit will only grow up until Fat Tuesday arrives on February 9th. If you are planning a visit to town to catch all of the fun, make sure to stop in for a Honey Island Swamp Tour, a New Orleans City Cemetery Tour, or a Plantation Tour. We hope to see you out!

Carnival and Super Bowl Season. Oh My!!

Swamp Tour Mardi GrasThings are always festive here in the Big Easy, and even more so at Cajun Encounters Tour Company. Right now, though, it’s safe to say that things are positively nutty.

In just over ONE WEEK, the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens will be squaring off in our beloved Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Tensions are high, fans are flocking to the Crescent City, and just about every hospitality business is high-tailing it around in efforts to give our visitors the welcome they deserve. It is more than exciting, and SO MUCH FUN.

This is all happening in the midst of CARNIVAL SEASON!! That’s right, parades are already rolling each and every weekend here, and sometimes on days in between. Mardi Gras colors can be seen everywhere, and there’s a pretty good chance you’ll find a second line, feathered hat, or Mardi Gras beads when you turn the corner on any French Quarter street.

Here at Cajun Encounters, we are having a ball. Tours are running, king cakes are arriving, football debates are a’ blazing, and we’re in the middle of it all. We’ve even decorated the swamp tour camp to be festive!! Just check out our pics!

You guys – there are still sMardi Gras Super Bowl New Orleans Toureveral spots open for tours, so be sure to get your seats before it’s too late! How better to celebrate being in New Orleans than with a Honey Island Swamp Tour, New Orleans City Cemetery Tour, Plantation Tour, or Bike Tour? Seriously! Our sister company also has party buses available to drive you around town.

Holy smokes!! We would say this is too much, but it’s never too much here in Nola.

Happy Mardi Gras from Cajun Encounters!

Welcome to New Orleans, and welcome to one of the most exciting times of the year – Mardi Gras!

We at Cajun Encounters are super excited to share this experience with visitors, and we hope that your stay is even more than you had imagined (we know that it will be). Make sure to catch as many parades as you can, eat at some of New Orleans’ amazing restaurants, like Huck Finn’s Cafe on Decatur Street, and realize that carnival season is more about culture and bringing together friends and family than it is some of that vulgar stuff that you see on tv (that’s only here and there, people!).

While you are in town, be sure to keep us in mind for the best in New Orleans city tours, Honey Island swamp tours, plantation tours, and anything that you need in regard to transportation.

We are closed on Fat Tuesday, as the entire city shuts down for the fun and festivities, but each and every day around that, we are open and tours are in action!

Again, thanks for visiting the Crescent City. We know you’ll have a great time while you are here.
