Christmas Eve Bonfire Express | Gray Line New Orleans

Christmas Eve Bonfire Express Tour

The Bonfire Express Tour includes round-trip narrated transportation aboard our “sleigh of coaches” to view the bonfires that light the way for Papa Noel (our Cajun Santa Claus) to bayou country.

For many years this Cajun community has built mammoth wooden structures such as cabins, tepees, & riverboats along the Mississippi River levee.  Come see the "feux de joie" (fires of joy)! 

Cost includes the guided motor coach tour, group escort, bottled water, and Christmas cookies.    

NOTE: You must walk approximately 3 blocks (¼ mile) to view the bonfires.  Please wear comfortable clothes and shoes.
