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.

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

Oak Alley plantation was beautiful. The tour was very informative. Just the right amount of time. We also enjoyed our Swamp Boat tour. We saw many alligators, some turtles and a blue heron. We were allowed to feed the alligators marshmallows and even hold a baby alligator.

Very friendly tour guide picked our group of 6 up from our hotel right on time. Driver was very fun and friendly. Oak Alley was gorgeous and we had just the right amount of time to spend there. Swamp boat tour was a lot of fun we took the big covered boat not an air boat. Got back to the hotel around 5-6pm. Head a great time - definitely recommend!
