What people are saying about New Orleans

At any speed, exploring the swamp was a blast!

We started early, which was nice, because it was hot when we weren't moving. But we we were moving a lot and it kept us cool. We went fast down the waterways and slowed down to take pics and ask questions in some of the tour guides fave spots. We only got stuck once, when the guide took a turn too fast and we veered into the swamp. Was okay though. Another boat quickly got us out and while we waited we got to play with a baby alligator which tour guide had on board in a cooler. The views were magnificent. We saw alligators, egrets, swamp chickens, turtles and lots of flowing spanish moss. Would highly recommend this company and this event to anyone. Wear your ear protection. It got loud without it!

Amazing, recommend tours separately if you have time.

The combo tour is great if you only have one day for excursions but if you want time to enjoy the grounds and take in the history, we recommend separate tours. The swamp boat tour was AMAZING, best investment this trip! We had a great time with the guide, showing us so many beautiful aspects of the swamp and the wildlife, wow!! We have pictures to back up our memories! I can’t guarantee you’ll have the same experience because it’s nature but it definitely should be on everyone’s bucket list.

One of THE most powerful things I have ever experienced.

Bus tour guide was informative, but the guide at Whitney Plantation (Ali) was phenomenal!!!! He discussed difficult subjects of slavery, shifts of power and greed....this tour was told from the view of the enslaved with very little specific time spent on discussing land owners.....ABSOLUTELY recommend. This is the history we NEVER learned in school.

Plantation house was amazing but bus tour group was not

The Oak Alley Plantation Home was amazing, well worth the trip. The tour company that took me was not run so well. Picked up from hotel and dropped off at meeting point for bus, but I was left there with other passengers for half an hour as they forgot about us. Once that was sorted the rest of the tour went smoothly.!

Best experience while in New Orleans for the weekend!

Dewey was an amazing tour guide! By far this was our favorite experience in New Orleans! Glad we had the chance to meet Hercules up close and personal. Never thought I’d ever pet an alligator! What a memorable tour!!
