Great experience -- Swamp Boat tour was the highlight of my New Orleans trip. Seeing the contrast of the two different types of plantations was very interesting, too.
Great tour! Our host Joseph, picked us up on time and was a great resource of the history, and filled every moment of our ride to and from our destinations with great information, The Plantation Tours were Excellent, as was the Authentic Lunch we had. We did the swamp tour in the morning as they were concerned about the rain, though the boat was covered. We toured with a real alligator hunter, whose family has lived on the Bayou for 5 generations, try as we may we did not see an alligator in the wild, but our guide made it a fun trip. He said only 1 trip in 100 doesn't see one..This trip was one of our highlights.
Great tour and funny, personable and highly knowledgeable tour guide/bus driver. Wonderful history and a beautiful plantation. Worth seeing. Sylvester, the driver was the highlight.
Doing what: Tour of Oak Alley Plantation
Excellent experience. Our driver, Joseph, was great. The lunch at plantation was a very sampling of classic Louisianna dishes. The swamp tour by boat was also very interesing and entertaining.
This tour was amazing!
OMG I was REALLY looking forward to this Swamp boat tour and it didn't disappoint, it was Friggen Awesome we upgraded to the High speed boat and it was worth every cent, both the Plantation houses we went to were a real eye opener for me to how people lived back in the day and this tour is really a must.
Fantastic day! All guides very knowledgeable and kept it interesting. We were in a small group, only 8 of us which was really good. Was concerned that it would be a "long day" but the time flew buy. Would definitely take this tour again.
Excellent tour. The tour guide was great and had a lot of knowledge about the area as she was a local. We learnt a lot on the journey about New Orleans as well as the plantations we were visiting. On the swamp boat we saw a few alligators, turtles and various birds. Also saw a couple of alligator hunters coming in with their prey! The lunch was good, huge portions meant I couldn't get anywhere near finishing the dessert!
The tour guide was great! It was worth every dollar! I highly recommend that both plantations, Oak Alley and Laura, be toured together. Just going to one doesn't give you full true perspective. Seeing both is a must!!!!!
Excellent!!!! Fun, fun, fun. Not a boring moment. The plantations were a great experience to the past. And the swamp adventure was loads of fun. Highly recommend. The tour guides were professional and knew what they were doing.
Loved this tour, I didnt think I would as Im not into alligators etc but the Bayou was so calm and relaxing and beautiful and I was very impressed. The guide was a local so he knew his what he was talking about and it came from a personal view not a written script.
The Plantation was great. Had a taste of a Mint Julip. the food was the best creole I tasted on the whole trip.
Our Guide was the best and Im not just saying that. She narrated the whole way there and back and it was all very interesting.
Learned a lot; beautiful setting and great gift shop.

Very informative, the guides for each location were very knowledgeable and entertaining!
Our guide for the day, was excellent and nice to visit with.
The Air boat ride was awesome, and the captain of the boat was a lot of fun.
The food at Oak Ally Plantation was amazing as well as the tour through the house.
This full day tour I have already recommended it to friends and family. I know my family will do this again next time we go to New Orleans.
Everyone should do this tour!
What fun!! We loved airboat tour. Our guide, Jerry, was great! Held a 1 foot alligator and saw an 12 foot gator up close. And I mean close. I think our guide is the "alligator whisperer."
The plantations were very interesting. Loved Laura plantation and hearing our guide describe how her ancestors lived there.
