Nice. The only thing that I didn't like is that the time spent in the plantation was too short.

The tours were great! We were picked up on time right in front of our Bed and Breakfast. Both tours were very informative and fun. I would highly recommend this tour combo!

Both were good. I especially liked the swamp tour. Our guide was fantastic. We had a lot of fun taking pictures of gators and turtle and watching him playing with gators.

The only complaint I had was that the bus driver was actually going to leave without me instead of counting heads. I was in bathroom, and almost missed the bus going back to the hotel. Maybe, he had said when to meet, but the instruction was not super clear.

Good tour, however more time needs to be allotted for the Plantation tour and less for the Swamp boat tour, seemed in proportionate for the level of interest in each site.

The above trip was very good however there was not enough time to see and complete the Oak Alley tour. After viewing the house with a guide which went on a little too long, we were unable to spend time around the grounds etc. We had to change buses and then drop off people at another location. The swamp boat tour was very entertaining and would highly recommend.

Plantation tour was great! There were only 2 very small alligators - we went end of October - maybe there Are alligator seasons ? I did hear that September is alligator hunting season so maybe that's why so few. So yes to the plantation but no to the swamp tour - in Oct.

I have done multiple Viator tours in multiple different countries. In general I feel like the sights are always worth it, though the variables in logistics control what makes the trip enjoyable: transport method, guide, timing, lunch, fellow tour attendees etc. The more transparent the company is about these changeable elements, the better the trip.
This tour was not very transparent. You switch buses 2-3 times, maybe drivers, people on your tour have different plantations booked, and are maybe taking a different boat tour than you are apparently there was a swamp boat tour option for some people, but not during my booking process. That said, everything ran smoothly, I just like knowing options and routes in advance. The mini-van was plenty roomy and comfortable, the guides personable, none of the drives were too long. There isn't a whole lot to do at Oak Alley besides the house tour, and taking pictures of the pretty estate. I felt I would have liked to have seen MORE plantations for comparison. The swamp tour isn't really in the midst of the bayou, trees etc.--you're mostly out in open water which is not as interesting as I expected. The guide acknowledged this discrepancy about people's perceptions of the swamp, but it looked like there were other options for smaller or more intimate boats that could take you more interesting places. If you want to see/hold alligators though, this tour definitely delivers. Note the airboats are super loud and people had to wear noiseblockers on them.
