About this trip

Join the Haitian Nomad on a cultural tour of French New Orleans exploring the roots of the creole people, their food, music, and festive spirit. New Orleans and Haiti are linked by culture, food , and history so it's only right that you explore the "Big Easy" with the Haitian Nomad.  After the Haitian Revolution, around 1809, there was a mass migration from Haiti to New Orleans of about 10,000 Haitians.  They’re these similarities in heritage and homelands, and there’s also the architecture, religion, music, dance, food, carnival, and vulnerability to natural disaster.  


This trip will allow you to explore one of the most unique cities in the US known as the top city in the US for foodies. We will learn about the creole history which is comprised of French, Spanish, and African influence and dive into everything New Orleans. On top of having amazing food, this city prides itself on being the birthplace of Jazz. 


Our itinerary will touch all of New Orleans with a cooking class of New Orleans dishes, a tour through the French Quarter learning about Afro Creole culture,  a visit to the Laura and Whitney Plantation, a visit to the only Haitian restaurant in New Orleans, museum and art exhibits, visits to black owned restaurants, plus some other surprises and if we're lucky, we'll get to catch a second line parade Sunday afternoon. 


Second Line Parades are a historical tradition and are the descendants of the city’s famous jazz funerals and, apart from a casket, mourners and a cemetery visit, they carry many of the same traditions with them as they march down the streets. Second line started in Haiti and came to New Orleans at the beginning of the 19th century.  


Added bonus: Enjoy New Orleans nightlife every night in the French Quarter and on Frenchmen St.

I had a wonderful time! I thought there was a good variety of excursions/activities that everyone could find something to enjoy. I also thought there was enough downtime to participate in activities or explore on your own. The dinner venues were gorgeous and the group of people I traveled with were very friendly. I hope to travel with them again!

Another great Haitian Nomad trip in the books!! Thailand was beautiful and Richard did an excellent job curating this trip as always! The cooking class was more fun than I was expecting it to be. The elephant sanctuary was lots of fun! The hotel was beautiful! The restaurants we ate at were great! Transportation was good and we made it everywhere safely. Richard was always available for questions and we had plenty to do! Shopping in Old Town and at the Chillva night market were both fun and cultural experiences. Spa day was right on time!! And bringing in the New Year on Patong Beach was definitely a dream come true! We could have spent more time at the beach on the day we visited the Phi Phi Islands but other than that the trip was phenomenal! And the Phi Phi Islands are beautiful!!! Can't wait for our next adventure with the Haitian Nomad!! Thanks Richard!!

I traveled with Haitian nomad to Thailand approx 3 years ago i traveled with Haitian nomad to Cuba. I chose to return to Haitian nomad because of the precise organization that is conducted. Richard and his staff are attentive to the needs of their customers, always humble and understand that their customers needs come first. I will continue to be a top fan of Haitian nomad and continue to support. I had a great time in Thailand thanks to Haitian nomad and look forward to more trips in the future.

Short Version: Book with him ASAP I cannot recommend the Haitian Nomad enough!! My first trip, we'd returned from Cuba and after the experience, I was thoroughly impressed with Richard's trip. His trips are extremely well planned and a lot of thought and effort was put into ensuring everyone is having the time of their life. Richard pays attention to all the little details, is very organized, and adds a personal touch to the experience that you're not likely to get anywhere else. During our trip to Cuba, Richard organized a wonderful home-cooked rooftop dinner in the city of Trinidad and it was such a fun, unique experience. He made sure to take us around to the sights and helped us if we needed anything while on the trip. Prior to the trip, Richard provided us with all the necessary information leading up to the trip and gave us tips and suggestions on what to expect and other things to do as well. He is also open to feedback on how his service can be improved so he gets an A in customer service from me. Overall, it was the perfect trip and I couldn't have asked for more. So far I've been on about 5 or 6 trips (maybe more) and it exceeds expectations every time!
