The Cajun Kids Tour was created by an 11 year old little girl being raised in New Orleans, Louisiana with the help of her mother who is a local tour guide. Together they took Louisiana legends & folklore that have been passed down for generations and created a tour that is fascinating!

Learn superstitions that are deeply rooted in New Orleans homes!

For example, Do you know why New Orleans residents do not sleep in the moonlight? They have a fear of going Moon Mad!

For good fortune it is believed that you should not eat the ends of a loaf of bread before you have eaten the middle. If you do, you will have trouble making ends meet!

If an alligator was to crawl under a house, it could be a sign of an impending death!!

To protect yourself from the Rougarou (the swamp monster) at night children can lay coins in front of their bedroom doors. The Rougarou loves things that are shiny however he is not very smart he cannot count higher than the number 12. So as long as you put more than 12 pennies out where he will see them he will stop and pick them up, next he will try to count them, but because he is not very smart he will get confused and he will end up spending the entire night trying to count the pennies! When dawn comes he will have to flee to get out of the sunlight!

During this two hour tour the tour guide will tell many legends, stories of Louisiana folklore and superstitions just like these!

During this tour kids will learn about Hurricane Katrina. They will get to see a boat that was donated to a Louisiana State Museum. The boat saved over 300 people after the storm!

This tour also visits National Historic Landmarks and locations where very important Louisiana history was made!

Visit where the Louisiana Purchase was signed!
