On day two in New Orleans we took this tour. It was probably one of the best days we spent in New Orleans. Gisele was our tour guide and she was full of wonderful information. We did our swamp tour first where we got to see several alligators. We then headed to Oak Alley plantation where we had an amazing lunch followed by a tour of a beautiful French plantation. We then headed to Laura plantation which is a authentic Creole plantation not far down the road. Both plantations were like night and day from each other. Gisele gave us so much information about Ariel landmarks and even showed us some other plantations on the drive back into town. Overall I totally recommend this trip. It was money well worth spent.
Billy was our tour guide and a top notch tour guide he is! Swamp Boat Adventure was beautiful and informative about the wildlife, history and life in the bayou. Many visits by alligators looking for their marshmallows. Also cranes and a huge bullfrog. Beautiful, antique drawbridge at the beginning of the tour. Oak Alley was amazing. After a lifetime, I finally got to see and get a picture of a Southern Magnolia tree in bloom! The Cajun lunch buffet was beyond expectations! A good sampling of numerous Cajun foods unknown to us New Englanders. Laura Plantation was fascinating--especially the construction. We had some history of the residence from the Sinister Criminal Intentions Tour we took on the evening we arrived. We all learned a lot about plantation life and life in the South. Thank you for such a great tour!
This was a fantastic way to see some history and nature just outside New Orleans. Our guide was wonderful, and we got to see Alligators right off the side of the boat. The plantations are beautiful, but a sobering reminder of our country's history. It was a wonderful way to spend a little time outside of busy New Orleans, and is a great addition to any trip to the Big Easy!
excellent tour, our guide was well versed on the local wildlife. We saw birds and animals and several gators lots of fun
Even though this tour is a full day,, it is amazing and worth the price.
My swamp boat captain Derek was a joy! He goes above and beyond to make sure we had a beautiful ride on the bayou. saw plenty of alligators, he lets you drive the boat,, he tells stories and is a credit to this tour operation.
Both plantations were lovely.. I learned a lot about life in the past. Had a perky speaker ,, Bree,, she had great knowledge and shared it all with us!
Ginny, took us all around ,, she was the van operator and I would like to note.. that she gave the entire tour in English and in French ,, and didnt miss a beat. Another wonderful tour operator,, I thought she would get tired of speaking 2 languages but she was amazing.. If you can walk a lot,, take this tour!
Great tour the highlight being the Laura Plantation.
We had a great tour guide on the bus Gene Reyes he had great info on the tour and New Orleans generally.
What a great way to experience the Cajun area. Our tour guide Ginnie provided history and information all of the time we were travelling. Next we went deep in the swamps by airboat not only seeing alligators but also learning about their survival struggles and conservation initiatives.
Next was a buffet of local foods followed by tours of 2 plantations.
This turned out to be the perfect way to see more of the area around New Orleans without having to rent a car.
Great day tour, our guide was very informative and funny. Lunch was great.
What a pleasant trip! John was a great driver and all the tour guides were informative. Celeste at the Laura plantation was particularly energetic and fun.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our tours and experience with Viator during our wonderful stay in New Orleans! Using Viator made it all very easy and convenient.
