Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler…

“let the good times roll!” From the Delta to the Bayou and all places in between, the eclectic state of Louisiana is the embodiment of diversity; making it the perfect place for the fun-loving adventurer who is overdue for entertainment, fabulous food, and nonstop festivities. Enjoy the sweet, melodic, southern drawls that make talking with the locals a delight, and indulge in some of the best Cajun cuisine in the land. Of course, a “crawl” through Louisiana would not be complete without some time in New Orleans. We end with a walking tour of the French Quarter and farewell lunch overlooking Lake Pontchartrain.

Cajun Crawl – Louisiana Style

  • When we signed up for the tour all we knew was that we were going to Alaska. Adventure Caravans made this trip, for us, a once in a lifetime experience. Everything was taken care of, all we had to do was leave in the morning and be in the next campground by a certain time. We enjoyed every facet of the tour from the log meetings and socials to the tours and our free time. Kudos to the wagon masters and to Penny and Tom. The icing on the cake are the wonderful friends that we made and know we will keep in touch. The camaraderie among the whole group was amazing but the trip left us with memories for a lifetime. Thank you Adventure Caravans.

  • With Adventure Caravans you do and see more things than if you try to do the travel on your own. Many places we had never heard of before and therefore would not have experienced………Dan & Margaret M.

  • All we had to do was drive. The planning was all done for us. In the end it didn’t cost more than doing it on our own… Larry & Charley K.
