History and Alligators Oh My
, Jun 2019
Destrehan plantation is a beautiful place that has quite the history. The tour guides are very knowledgeable about this place that you could really picture yourself living in the era. Large airboat tour was great too. Captain Ernie knows everything about alligators you could possibly want to know. We saw several of them during our trip in early June. During the drive, the initial tour guide showed us different areas where Katrina had devastated the region back in 2005. Highly recommend this tour if you find yourself in the Big Easy.

Capt Ernie appreciates the very positive review. We try really hard to make ground transportation, plantation tour and swamp tour come seamless together in one experience.
A great history lesson.

This was a great tour to learn about plantation history. The buildings are in great condition and our guide was very informative. It was very interesting to learn about the plantation family histories, both owners and the slaves.

The plantation was fun to visit. But it was the airboat tour that I really enjoyed. The boat master was funny and informative. What really made me happy was the chance to hold a baby alligator. That was the highlight for me.

While staying in New Orleans in early July 2017, we decided to take a day trip outside the city for a combination of history and adventure. The tour did not disappoint! Pickup was on time and the ride was extremely comfortable limousine van. Our driver, Brett, was both hilarious and informative. The tour of the plantation went beyond what we expected and we learned a lot about the history of Destrehan. Lasty, not enough can be said about the fun to be had on the Airboat tour. Our captain was both funny and knowledgeable and showed us a great time on the bayou. We highly recommend this tour!

We enjoyed both the plantation and the airboat. The guides were amazing and so was our limo driver. The limo driver our city guide explained the history of the city and answered a lot of questions. The guide at the plantation went over the living in plantation times. And the airboat captain was hilarious. That was definitely the highlight of our trip to New Orleans. Definitely recommend it.

This a great adventure. A very interesting look at a plantation that came alive with our guide Beverly. Captain Ernie then took us for a ride through the bayou. Showed us alligators and explained how the swamp had been used. A nice break from the city life.
