Swamp Tour Pictures!!

The beauty of the Honey Island Swamp never gets old…. especially when we are given the opportunity to see photos our swamp tour from guests like you!

Each time a picture is emailed to us or posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest, the team can’t wait to check it out. It’s a way to rediscover the swamp through the eyes of someone else and the joy it brings is just another one of those things that makes what we do worth it, a million times over.

Just recently, we posted another “all call” for pics, and boy did we get a ton of great shots!

We’ve posted a few of them below for the world to see, as they are definitely worth checking out.

If you’ve been on tour, don’t forget to post some photos of your own! We also love to hear your stories, so if you have a family trip or group you’d like highlighted here on our blog, just email us at We’ll work to get it up as soon as we can.

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 Awarded 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence

The world’s largest travel site has honored Cajun Encounters Tour Company with a prestigious award – the 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence!!

Thanks to reviews from honored guests, hard work from our fabulous team, and interest from readers like you, we’ve been able to “push the envelope” in making fun, memorable, quality tour excursions. Our Honey Island Swamp Tours, New Orleans City Cemetery Tours, and Plantation Tours have come far, growing into tailor made experiences drawn from years of guest feedback.

Sites like TripAdvisor help us to brainstorm for new ideas and get an inside view of guests’ time with us. Community based, honest review sites like TripAdvisor help everyone, as businesses cannot pay to be listed, and therefore must work hard to be the best they can be. What an honor to receive an award through this forum.

The TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence celebrates hospitality excellence and is given to only 10% of businesses worldwide. You must consistently achieve excellent traveler reviews, maintaining an overall rating of four or higher, as well as have a high volume of feedback within the past year. Winners of the Certificate of Excellence are located all over the world and represent the upper echelon of businesses listed. We are so happy to bring the accolade down all the way to New Orleans.
