Worth your every buck! Let me tell you it was a very instructive, fun and overall very wonderful and forever-lasting experience. I went by myself and hope to come back with my family next year. Let me start with our bus driver: he picked everyone in the group at each hotel. Man, he is the BEST tour guy I've had in a long time. He knew the whole history, land, architecture, popular culture, entertainment world such as movies, etc. about Louisiana. He has been doing this for years now and worked in all kinds of jobs. He told us he is from Baton Rouge and has lived in New Orleans for some years now. You could really tell he loves his job and knows SOOO much. My only regret is I wish I had gotten his name to make sure I get him again whenever I visit Louisiana with my family in the future. Even though I didn't go to the Destrehan Plantation because I was the only person in this tour, I visited Oak Alley and I learned so much about how life in the plantations were for these plantation owners and their slaves. The Swamp Tour was amazing! It lasted a long time (very much worth your every dollar) and we went deep into the marshlands, saw all kinds of animal life. We could pet wild alligators if we wanted to and felt comfortable with it. Our tour guy was funny, friendly and would tell all these crazy stories about his life there in the swamps in Louisiana. He was very knowledgeable about Louisiana swamp life as he grew up in that environment.

Both tours were awesome. Plantation big house tour was the only part guided, and our tour guide had so much knowledge. Swamp tour was amazing. Your guide was funny and also full of knowledge and explained different things throughout the tour. Purchased the tour with transportation, which was comfortable and relaxing as we went both to and from the tours.

We enjoyed both locations as the guides were very knowledgeable in their fields. But we thoroughly enjoyed the airboat tour! Our guide Brad was excellent and he kept it real! He was laid back and was able to answer and explain all questions asked. Be sure to take the airboat tour even if you don't do the plantation! You won't regret it!

The plantation tour was quite interesting and informative. The swamp tour was also informative. We learned a lot about gators we didn't know before. We also saw a bunch of gators. It was cool!

Plantation and Swamp boat Tour

Picked up from Hotel for the drive to the Desterhan Plantation. Our tour guide, Beverly, brought history alive with her knowledgeable and entertaining commentary. Another bus ride to the swamp boat tour where we were treated to an expert guide who whisked us expertly to see so many gators, birds even an owl. A very rewarding day and highly recommend.

Great Tour. The plantation tour was good informative and historical. The airboat tour was SO MUCH FUN! The airboat was a blast to ride in. I am so happy we did an airboat instead of a large boat. We probably would not have seen any alligators had we been on the large boat and we certainly would not have been able to go into the areas we did with the airboat. Our guide was very informative and personable.

History and Alligators Oh My

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.
