Lawrence D – November 2016“This was a truly memorable and eye-opening trip to a part of the country we’ve never seen before. We explored nature with a guided swamp boat ride and a guided kayak tour… We explored the culture with our visit to a Cajun musician, along with a Jambalaya cooking lesson and a shrimp boil… They were professional, entertaining and informative. A truly wonderful experience.”
