Learn about the efforts made to preserve and restore Louisiana's vanishing wetlands. Tour is approximately 3.75 hours.

This was a wonderful tour. The bus ride tio Oak Alley was long but our knowledgeable driver kept us entertained with his non stop dialog. The tour of the plantation was fairly quick, as there were other tour groups there so we moved through quickly. The grounds were beautiful.
