Heritage Tours by Seitz Travel was started in 2018 by Cynthia and Roy Seitz of Houma, Louisiana.
Cynthia Breaux Seitz was born and raised on the bayous of south Louisiana. An interest in her heritage began at a young age prompting her to start digging into her family history and putting together her family tree. In doing so she realized she was not just Cajun but that she had Spanish, Italian, and Irish, and German running through her veins as well. This new information sparked a fascination within her about the origins of the other immigrant groups living in Louisiana. Cynthia is the owner/operator of Heritage Tours by Seitz Travel. Her mission is to provide custom heritage tours to the motherlands of the various ethnic groups of the people of Louisiana. She s currently offering a heritage tour for May of 2021 to Malaga, Spain for the Malaguenos that settled in the New Iberia area as well as a tour to the Canary Islands which is for the latter part of October in 2021. They also offer heritage tours! Their Acadian Heritage Tour (Acadian Tour De France) will take place in June 2021.
Heritage Tours by Seitz travel is excited to say that Germans of the German Coast Heritage Tour will take place in September 2021. Their Sicilian Heritage Tour will take place in September 2021!
More heritage tours coming soon for Italians, Irish, and Greeks, to name a few. It is her goal to provide all Louisianians with an opportunity to visit the homelands of their ancestors.
Cynthia has a BA in Education and a Minor in French from Nicholls State University in Thibodaux, Louisiana. After teaching school for many years, her love for travel and the histories of the people groups of Louisiana moved her to make a career change, which brings her to where she is now.
Roy has a BA in Computer Science and a Minor in Math from Nicholls State University. He helps to organize and operate all of the tours, but his main passion is math making him the perfect bookkeeper for their business.
