We went on a shrimp boat and had the shrimper show us how he caught shrimp. Our guide, Don went out of his way to give us the best tour. We saw crabs shedding their shells and the lady at crab factory talked to us. We saw how shrimp were dried and even tasted them. Our lunch was fresh seafood and was it good. We went to a shrimp factory and saw shrimp being processed. The highlight of the tour was viewing alligators in the wild. Bring your cameras if you do this tour because I am doing it next month with my camera equipment. The tour was special and something we could not have done on our own. The alligators came up to our car. Kentucky Visitor
The tour took us to the backroads and we met many local people and talked to them. We saw crabs shedding their shells. We visited factories and even saw lots of alligators that came out of the water and up to our car. This is a must tour. Friend from Oregon
My wife and I took out 3 young daughters (9, 5, 18 months) for a couple of days in Cajun Country. Our first day was spent on a Cajun Tour booked trhough Cajun Tours (Sandra Pellegrin). Our guide, Don Geautreux) met us at our hotel promptly at 0930. It is a "walkaboard" tour, so Don joined us in our vehicle and directed us around town to see various sights. To say Don is good with kids would be an understatement, they had a blast! (So much so that when we left Houma, my daughters said they would miss Mr. Don.. and that he seemed like an "uncle") :)
I have to admit, touring with Don was like having a friend of the family, or a local relative taking you to the sights.
You could certainly TRY to tour the area yourself, but you'd never find or have access to the areas Don took us to. It was a great value and a great time. I highly recommend it!
