Loved the plantation tour and our guide , he was great and funny too, we learned alot of info from him and enjoyed our tour.
The guides on the air boat and the bus tour were very nice and helpful. The plantations were very interesting, but also very disturbing because of the history of slavery.
We found our guides the van driver Joseph, the bayou boat captain IBrian and the tour guides at the plantations to be fantastic - both in knowledge and in presentation. The meal at Oak Alley was great! Although the trip included two plantations they were very different and we enjoyed them. Highly recommend this one!
We loved this tour even if we didn't get to see any alligators on the swamp tour -. All of the guides were knowledgeable and entertaining, and seemed to really enjoy sharing their knowledge and showing us about. The only negative comment I'd make is that our small group was added to a very large group when we toured Oak Alley, which made it difficult to take time to look at things we wanted to view. But, we know that that's controlled by Oak Alley, not our tour guide. We learned a lot, loved that our group was small enough to fit in a van, and thought that the pacing of the day's activities was perfect.
Excellent day! Joseph, our driver, picked us up at 8 AM sharp and took us on our adventure. He was EXTREMELY knowledgeable, personable and narrated the tour throughout the day where we learned an incredible amount. The swamp tour was fun. We decided to take the slower swamp boat instead of the air boat just so we could hear a bit more of the narration. Our captain, too, was very knowledgeable and provided us with all of the history of the swamps and pointed out all of the vegetation and wildlife. We saw a few alligators along the way, not quite as many as we had hoped to see, but still it was very informative and beautiful.
Lunch at Oak Alley was great. All of the tours of both plantations were excellent with enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable tour guides. If you want to see some beautiful properties, these are the two to visit.
Joseph then drove us to our hotels, giving us more information along the way. It was a great way to learn a lot about the area, history and experience two extremes of New Orleans. I highly recommend this tour.
This was a fantastic tour with a local tour operator arranged through Viator. We had a really good lady driver/tour guide and the Plantations we visited were awesome with great history.
great time. driver and guides were excellent
An excellent tour and definitely a very worthwhile day trip, this was certainly one of our New Orlean highlights for our stay.
Loved the swamp boat. Loved the plantations. Lunch was just OK.
My favorite day in New Orleans trip! Quiet and peaceful on the bayou with a great guide-so informative! Guides at plantations brought the past to life. Great lunch and bus ride was full of info from our tour guide, Madelyn.
Airboat ride was outstanding, and plantation visits were very interesting. Lunch was good too. Our guides were knowledgeable and real characters.
Our tour guide Billy was wonderful. We were tied up bu an unexpected auto accident and he handled it very professionally. He made sure we did n't miss anything because of the time delay. He was also very informative about the city as we were driving. The bayou guide was also very friendly and informative. The entire tour was delightful except for the unexpected rain shower, which you have no control over.
Great tour. Learned the history of the plantation.

Excellent tour. Swamp Boat Adventure with Rodney was excellent, fun and very informative. Both plantations on the tour were great. Ellen was great! would highly recommend this tour.
Love this tour. Our family would do it again! The Swamp tour guide was very knowledgeable . The plantation guides were excellent. And our van driver the best.
Wonderful tour overall. Guide was excellent in adding to the experience. Swamp tour a little disappointing, only very small gators, but quite tranquil and scenic. The plantations were 5 stars all the way.
this was a wonderful day, the two plantations were very different and were amazing. The tour Lady who picked us up was very friendly and informative, she was a gem. The whole day was great, and worth every
Another excellent tour..full day, but well worth the time. The Bayou was amazing and the 2 plantations were in huge contrast to each other. A fun day and so very interesting.
We had a fantastic day! The swamp boat was lots of fun, we learned a lot at each plantation, and we ate incredible food for lunch! Our tour guide, John was a wealth of information and we learned a lot about the NOLA area! Our only regret was that the day didn't last longer!!
Loved it! We especially loved the airboat and getting upfront and personal with the alligators.
Really enjoyed the tour. It was perfect for my elderly mother not to much walking. The plantation meal was really good. The guides were knowledgeable and entertaining. Just an all around good day.
History rich ! The plantations are very different from each other . Both very enjoyable
Very well run tour. Highly recommend.
