I enjoyed the tour. It gave me a good impression of what life was at the plantation and is around the swamp. Alton was an excellent driver and Midge was a great tour guide . I live in the Pacific Northwest, so the south is a different environment than what I live in.
This tour was great, even on a cloudy and rainy day! Plantation tour was interesting, and the trees were absolutely gorgeous. The swamp tour had an excellent guide, that wanted you to have a good time and see as many animals as possible, even if on an imperfect weather day.
Destrehan Plantation Plantation is the first stop. It is a beautiful restoration that has been undertaken by the local historical society. It was in a total shambles. The history is very interesting and was very well presented by our guide Katherine. Well worth the trip.
Next stop was Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. Brandon was our captain. He was very knowledgeable. He brought small turtles crawfish etc including a baby alligator for a real hands on experience.
This tour was simply AMAZING! You will see the Destrehan plantation and learn about the family. You will also see hand-made and hand-carved pieces of furniture that are simply out of this world. You will see how people lived in previous generations. And you'll see amazing landscapes and trees that are hundreds of years old.
You will end the tour with a SUPER FUN swamp boat ride. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the swamp tour was SO MUCH fun. Make sure you get Captain Tom. Definitely take this tour! You'll miss out on a lot of history, culture and fun if you don't take it.
Swamp tour very good. Plantation tour is poor. No recognition of slavery or what happened. The guide focuses on the family that lived there and refused to answer question on salves. Very uncomfortable and wouldn’t recommend. Swamp tour is good but suggest doing that by itself.
