This sale is good for Read! ONLY CYBER MONDAY! So starting Cyber Monday for 24 Hours Only you can save bigger than any other time of the year.*

Thanksgiving Tours

This Thanksgiving instead of squawking at the dinner table over Turkey, come fly down to New Orleans and spend it touring the City and nearby Honey Island Swamp. We love to spend time with our patrons and guests as they spend their time with friends and family. Cajun Encounters has for years been a staple of the Slidell Thanksgiving experience, with a dedication to providing service year round.

Fall Swamp Tours

As the Season changes so does the swamp, as the brush retreats our boats can go further back into little areas usually closed off to outsiders. It is the perfect opportunity to see something totally unique to the short winters of Louisiana. Migrating birds, beautiful winter species emerging to the fore, and the magic of that crisp air floating there on the peaceful Louisiana wetlands.

Fall in New Orleans makes for the best Tours

People take decorating seriously in New Orleans and over the Thanksgiving weekend houses all across the city will have complete make overs to celebrate the coming Christmas season. Throughout the French Quarter and Uptown gorgeous New Orleans homes will be decked out with cheer. So make sure you catch all the activity with us.

Thanksgiving Tour Times

Swamp Tours at 9:30 a.m. and 12:15 p.m.

City Tour at 11:30 a.m.

Team Cajun Encounters, Behind the Scenes!

As we head into days of beautiful weather down here in South Louisiana, team Cajun Encounters is kicking it into high gear behind the scenes to welcome all of our amazing guests to town.

It takes a talent for teamwork, a knack for detail, and a passion for providing the best guest service around to make for the fun, memorable, top rated excursions we’re renowned for.

We honored to have been chosen as the “go to” for so many in authentic, worthwhile tours of the swamp, city and cemeteries of New Orleans, and throughout “Plantation Alley,” but we’re beyond proud of the reservations team, dispatchers, tour boat captains, bus driver guides, mechanics, sales team, and every single person at Cajun Encounters who’s drive and love for hospitality has made such a thing possible.

Here’s a few photos of our team in action, making sure that tours not only meet, but exceed all expectations. They have it down to a science and we’re impressed by them each and every day.

If you’ve been impressed by their service recently, hearing about it will help make their day. Just post on Google + or Tripadvisor!

Our Friends at TAGNO Take a Custom City Tour

On August 19th, 2014, we were given the honor of showcasing New Orleans to our friends at the Travel Agents of Greater New Orleans (TAGNO). During our custom New Orleans City Cemetery Night Tour excursion, we visited City Park, the Treme, the Garden District, the Warehouse District, Marigny, Bywater, and of course the beautiful French Quarter while we traded stories about living in the Crescent City and being a part of the culture here.

The tour also included a stop at Huck Finn’s Cafe, who’s team greeted us with po boys, smiles, and the chance to get out and stretch our legs.

There were tons of laughs, lots of notes to compare, and even some brownies and petit fours to go around.

With so much to love about New Orleans and so much to learn about it’s nearly 300 year history, it’s easy to see why a city tour is fun for visitors and locals alike.

To reserve your spot on tour, give us a call at 504-834-1770. You can also book online for instant savings!New Orleans Tour

Carnival Season 2014 – Gearing Up for Mardi Gras in New Orleans

Mardi Gras lands on March 4th this year, which is a bit later than folks are used to down in the Crescent City.

What does a late Fat Tuesday mean? It means more time for celebration, more weekends for parades, and even the possibility of warmer weather to don our most festive gear. It means more chances to catch beads, more opportunities to hear some of the best marching bands in the country, and more time to bring family together for the occasion.

At Cajun Encounters, it means more chances to celebrate Carnival with you, our guests. Through our swamp tours, city cemetery excursions, and plantation tours, we get to elaborate on why our “Nola” is truly special and touch upon how taking part in the fun of Lundi Gras, Mardi Gras, and the days coming relates to our culture.

It’s no secret that we are proud of our heritage and jump at the chance to show guests around.

If you’re planning a trip to the Big Easy, we’d love the chance to show you too! Just reach out to us for more info on tour dates, excursion times, and pick up areas. You can also book easily and quickly online with some pretty great instant discounts.

Thanks for reading and be sure to check back with us from time to time for more news. Now, as they say, “laissez le bon ton roulet!”

Cajun Encounters in VIP Magazine!!

Cajun Encounters has been featured in a spot on summer travel by none other than VIP Magazine.
