  • Cajun Pride Tours
    Devoted to preserving Cajun culture by sharing it with the public, Cajun Pride Tours’ knowledgeable and passionate guides lead groups on tours that explore area swamps, plantations along the Great Mississippi River Road, and the historic districts of New Orleans. They also stroll along city streets in the French Quarter in New Orleans, the Garden District, and areas that display the lingering effects of Hurricane Katrina. On boat trips, groups can spot friendly gators while floating through the Manchac Swamp—a protected area that prohibits any hunting, fishing, or tickling of the native wildlife. A short drive past the swamps drops tourists off near the area’s plantations that are notable for their history, architecture, landscaping, and insight into Creole culture.

    Shadows-on-the-Teche's curators share the legacy of the iconic structures and inhabitants of an antebellum 19th-century sugar cane plantation that helped shape the surrounding region. Trained guides draw upon more than 17,000 documents, photographs, and talking parrots to paint fascinating pictures of the enduring structure. A brilliantly recreated picket fence stands as a small-scale preview to the towering columns that brace a structure packed with a variety of artifacts, many of which are original to the home. The plantation is a National Trust Historic Site, and the tour contains extensive information on the Weeks family, the home's influential original owners.
