Overall, we had a nice day, however there were hiccups along the way so we did not fully enjoy the day. The tour company never showed up to pick numerous guests up at various hotel across New Orleans. The company then blamed us saying that the buses came and never saw us, which was very false considering we were outside of our hotel 10-12 minutes early from the original time that they had confirmed the night before. They then switch our tour completely without telling anyone because they said Viator did not provide them with our cell phone numbers at the time of the booking. We were forced to not do the airboat tour and instead do a pontoon boat tour, which is not what we wanted, so that was very disappointing. Oak Alley Planation is picturesque! It is absolutely beautiful. I do wish we had a little bit more time there to explore the grounds. The tour of the house is about 35-40 minutes with a guide. Definitely worth while to see!

Did the combo tour on 6/27/18. The swamp tour was very fun and informative. The guide did a good job and kept everyone engaged. The afternoon plantation was interesting too, however there was not enough time to fully enjoy the beauty of the plantation and take in all the info. After lunch and the guided tour only had about a half hour to explore and take photos. I would have gave 5 stars but there should be more time allowed at the plantation.

This tour was absolutely outstanding. We loved every minute of it. We had plenty of time to tour Oak Alley and take in all it's splendor and glory. Make sure you buy a Mint Julep to drink, it's delicious. After the tour of the house we were allowed to roam the grounds freely and explore the slave quarters.

The Swamp tour was so much fun. Our tour guide was a little quiet to start off with, but he soon warmed up to everyone and was quite numerous and friendly. The highlight was definitely being able to hold a baby alligator.

The plantation and swamp boat tours were wonderful. I would suggest attending both while in the area. It received a three star because of the Louisiana tour company. The late arrival at the plantation left the group rushed and only an hour at the plantation not enough for a tour and walking the grounds. The ride was very noisy and bumpy.

We enjoyed our day trip to Oak Alley plantation, and the swamp boat tour. It was a great way to spend a full day outside of the city. The plantation tour was interesting as it was immaculately maintained, and the host explained a dark time in Louisiana's history though I would have preferred a bit more time to explore the area on our own. The swamp tour was a lot of fun, and the highlight was being able to hold a baby alligator. If I were to do the trip over, I would have paid extra for the faster fan-boat tour rather than taking the slower, larger boat.

LeMonde was our driver for the day and he was very informative and kept everything on schedule. He pointed out many points of interest as we went by.
The tour of Oak Alley was amazing. Tara, was our tour guide in the house. She was very articulate and spoke clearly as she gave us the story of the families and the history of this grand home. I just would have liked a bit more time to be able to explore this gorgeous plantation.

Capt. Rob, a native to the area, was able to give us a great tour of the swamp with his personal experience and stories. We were treated to multiple 'gator' sightings with a real treat of getting a good look at a large gator posing on the bogs! Loved 'Elvis' ,Capt .Rob 's junior gator on board. We all learned a lot about the precious swamps and the animals , reptiles and birds that inhabit it them.

The Oak Alley plantation was spectacular.
Would recommend that when you arrive before the tour of the mansion if you have time, to go to the front gate and get
the wonderful shots looking down the alley of oaks. We did this after the mansion tour we found that we were then rushed for time to get back on the bus to go to the swamp tour. I think there should be at least 15/20 more minutes spent at oak alley.
The swamp tour was great, got to hold a baby alligator and see them being fed etc.
Would recommend this tour if you are visiting New Orleans
