Destrehan Plantation Plantation is the first stop. It is a beautiful restoration that has been undertaken by the local historical society. It was in a total shambles. The history is very interesting and was very well presented by our guide Katherine. Well worth the trip.
Next stop was Cajun Pride Swamp Tours. Brandon was our captain. He was very knowledgeable. He brought small turtles crawfish etc including a baby alligator for a real hands on experience.
Brandon was a hoot! Plus loved having the reptiles on the boat was a great educational and fun experience. Plus I got to hold a gator!!! Helllllurrrr

This tour was simply AMAZING! You will see the Destrehan plantation and learn about the family. You will also see hand-made and hand-carved pieces of furniture that are simply out of this world. You will see how people lived in previous generations. And you'll see amazing landscapes and trees that are hundreds of years old.
You will end the tour with a SUPER FUN swamp boat ride. I wasn't sure what to expect, but the swamp tour was SO MUCH fun. Make sure you get Captain Tom. Definitely take this tour! You'll miss out on a lot of history, culture and fun if you don't take it.
This tour was amazing!
Great tour! Everything very well organized. Great combination of activities. Swamp tour was super fun!
This tour was amazing!
Do not come to New Orleans without doing this tour. We got to hold a baby alligator, which was amazing!! And we got to learn amazing facts about about life here in the early period of time.
Our swamp boat ride was my favorite part of this tour. Brendan our captain/guide was very knowledgable about the swamp, it's creatures, it's history. He made the tour interesting by making it interactive. He shared his pets, a crawfish, several turtles, a couple of snakes and a baby alligator. While he passed each of these critters around he told us all about them. You could chose how up close and personal you wanted to be. We did see gators and turtles in the swamp also a clever blackbird and a raccoon.
The plantation tour was interesting. Our docent/guide was very informative about life on the plantation. It was a nice balance between tour and free time to explore the out buildings. I would highly recommend this tour.
Amazing! Highly recommended
Our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke to us about different aspects of NOLA as the bus took us to the plantation and out to the swamp. The plantation tour was good and we had enough time to see a good bit of history. On the boat of the swamp tour we saw raccoons and turtles and lots of alligators. Great way to spend the day !
