Take a break from the city to explore the history and natural landscape of Southern Louisiana. Going with a guide eliminates the hassle of navigating on your own, as well as ensures you learn little–known facts and stories about two infamous plantations and Cajun swamp life. Included in this tour is a full brunch of regional specialties, including crawfish and Cajun smoked sausage.
I came to NOLA with intentions of renting a car and driving to the plantations and then doing a swamp tour separately. I’m so glad I didn’t. We were able to visit and have tours of two plantations and brunch at Oak Alley. Our tour guide Sarah and bus driver Joe were amazing. Sarah was very knowledgeable and Joe was always ready to go to make sure we stayed on schedule. Our swamp tour was great, guaranteed seeing some alligators.
Great tour guides for the bus and the swamp, and overall, a wonderful tour; HOWEVER, Viator's booking site said this tour would have "No more than 10 people."This was NOT true; we had a full size Grey Line tour bus with over 33 people! Part of the reason we were willing to pay $ 175 each was because the info in the description made it sound like a small group. This misleading description is the ONLY reason I am giving this tour just 3 stars. It was otherwise a great tour.
