Explore the history of New Orleans with a ride aboard the Steamboat Natchez, the city’s only authentic steam-powered...
What a fun time we had! The crew members couldn’t have been nicer. The only drawback was NOLA had a ban on live music so no Jazz band on board.
The steamboat hatches with lunch was our favorite part of our trip to NOLA. Highly reccomend it to anyone considering this activity.
Nice tour with good, interesting narration. Fun to see the city and the river from this perspective. We didn’t do the lunch add-on, so can’t comment on that. Disembarkation process could be streamlined/managed better. Got a bit jammed up. Overall, thumbs up.

We had already walked the streets of New Orleans French Quarter, but this tour provided us with an entirely different way of looking at buildings and streets knowing the history and stories involving those areas and the people inhabiting them. From vampires to witches and serial killers, we weren't able to go to sleep that night! Excellent! My 17 and 18 y.o. kids said it was their favorite part of our vacation!
Loved seeing the buildings and hearing the tales and history of the people and history. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip. I would totally recommend this.
Great guide and learned the history. Walking wasn't too much and stopped for drinks. A great night

I know this experience would have been much better, I’m sure it’s only because the country was just coming out of quarantine from COVID-19. However I was very impressed.
Shuttle service was awesome and seeing the floats and the process of making them was a blast. Good time for all ages.
We enjoyed seeing the behind the scenes look at creating the imagery of Mardi Gras and corporate projects.

Our guide was the best! T-Tom (Tomas)was very knowledgeable and entertaining!We had family in from Washington State so they had never experienced anything like this before. Thank you Cajun Pride and T-Tom for being so awesome!!!!!!
We ( my new guy I’m dating and I) had the best time!!! The staff that were there were extremely professional! I mostly appreciated the Social distancing requirements they had in place!! The location was easy to find! The Alligators were gracious enough to make an grand entrance and stay! It was a tranquil experience! It even rained a little! The rain hitting the tin roof of the boat while looking at the beautiful swampland was absolutely breathtaking!! Everybody should experience that at least once!!! And the Captain Bishop was Informative and Funny...a great combination for a Swamp Tour guide on Manchac Swamp! I will go back! I will tell everyone I know! I am so happy I chose Cajun Swamp Tour through TripAdvisor! It was a GREAT experience!!!!
Loved every moment! The view was awesome! Had a great time! Our driver was also friendly and nice

Great customer service and my wife and I had a lot of fun! Definitely will be making another trip soon!

Destrehan is a great place for anyone's first visit to a plantation. It's very close to New Orleans, only about a 36 min drive. Checking in is easy inside the gift shop and the majority of grounds are handicap friendly. The plantation home itself even has an elevator that can take you to the second floor! Our tour guide, Judy was very nice and dressed head to toe in her period costume despite the 90-degree heat and humidity. Very educational!

This was a fun and informative tour and was exactly what I had hoped it would be. We saw great parts of the french quarter and lots of spooky and creepy information at all the stops. The tour guide was energetic and had greats stories to tell. I would do this again in a heartbeat
Our tour guide was amazing. She really made it a great experience.
Eve was the best. Everyone had a great time and she was an awesome person. She answered everyone’s questions and is a very good tour guide. I’m so glad we got to have her as our guide. Thanks a lot. And will definitely recommend y’all and her to friends and family.

Cedric was an awesome tour guide, I have completed about 6 of these walking tours over the years, so I’m a bit cynical- however Cedric was so knowledgable (more so than the usual guide) he was inclusive for all the group, kind and thoughtful to various people’s needs AND he definitely knew more history than any other tour guide that I have come across here in Nawleens - thank you Cedric!
We loved it! Our tour guide, Rose Sinister was amazing. Very entertaining and informative. I've since started listening to her podcast!
We took the 8:30 vampire your and we were extremely lucky to get Cedric as our tour guide. If you're going to take a vampire tour of New Orleans, insist on Cedric being your guide. Cedric is not the run of the mill tour guide. He is the standard by which all tour guides should be trained and measured. It was a phenomenal tour!!! So much information shared. Cedric takes his role very seriously. With even a larger than normal group, Cedric made it a vampire tour to be remembered. If you have to go through extra effort or wait to have Cedric as your tour guide, do it because it's totally worth it!!!! Can't wait to go back and do a cemetery tour with him.
