Experience Cajun Country: Swamp Boat Adventure and Plantations Full-Day Tour from New Orleans

New Orleans, Louisiana

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

The swamp boat adventure was approximately two hours. It was very enjoyable and informative. We saw lots of wildlife and plant-life. The driver of the airboat was extremely knowledgeable. I have problems walking so the van driver arranged for a golf cart to take me from the parking lot to the Plantation Home. Then from the Plantation Home to our lunch. Our van driver told us the slave quarters were replicas and to wait until the second plantation where we would see authentic/original slave quarters. The lunch was edible, but not very good. It did not seem they were expecting us because they had to scramble to replenish the food. We continued to the second plantation stop. It was very nice with a great gift shop. But they do not accept American Express Credit Cards.

Our return to the hotel was okay, but the driver was reluctant to go to the hotels located on Canal Street because there was a festival in the French Quarter. My belief is there is always a festival in the French Quarter. My wife and I were staying at the Hilton Riverside. That was the first stop and the driver asked the remaining passengers to leave the van and take public transportation. Approximately two miles from the Hilton Riverside he was stopped in traffic and wanted to have everyone get out of the van. With my walking problem I told him that was not an option. Bottom line...the Swamp Boat Adventure was worth the money, but you can keep the Plantation Tours.

Viator VIP: Steamboat Natchez Dinner Cruise with Private Boat and Engine Room Tour

New Orleans, Louisiana

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Viator is the only place to book this as a VIP tour. We were met on the pier and quickly escorted onboard. We were the only two VIP guests for this dinner/cruise. As VIP guests we were given an extensive tour of the Natchez. Dinner has two sittings 6:00 pm and 7:15 pm. But due to the weather conditions possibility of rain we were given a reserved table inside for the entire three hour cruise. Additional we received two embarkation photos, a champagne cocktail, an extensive gift bag, an open bar for the entire 3 hours, and a bottle of wine with dinner.

I highly recommend this tour. It was very enjoyable.

My Review

This trip was exactly what we were looking for. We only wanted transportation to/from Stonehenge. Although we had no tour guide the driver was very knowledgeable of the London area and pointed out many sites while were were leaving the city. We were also offerred several different drop-off sites to choose from when we returned.

Private Transfer: Gare du Nord Train Station (Eurostar Terminal)

Paris, France

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Our driver was waiting when we arrived at Gare Du Nord. He took control of our luggage and provided us a safe journey to our hotel. He was able to skirt around the congested areas and pointed out several areas of interest while driving. We highly recommend using this type of service because it much safer than just wandering around an unfamiliar area.

The London Showboat Dinner Cruise on the Thames River

London, United Kingdom

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This dinner cruise was a lot of fun. We had a great table location. The entertainer was fun. The only problem was that we had no choice of a menu. I never saw anything where we could choose our meal when we booked and was not given any choice when we confirmed our booking. Luckily we were given a dish that we enjoyed.

Excellent value, but had a little difficulty locating the pick-up point. Also on Sunday's the route is different. Other than finding the pick-up point it was outstanding. We used the tour to become familiar with the city.
