What people are saying about New Orleans

Great tour, needs better organisation though

All in all I really liked both the swamp tour and the plantation although both had some minor issues. The swamp tour was a bit too long for what we got to see. It was nice seeing some animals and the nature, but at one point we just went back and forth within the same sections of the swamp while our guide was narrating. Luckily we had an awesome guide and he even let us pet a little alligator. The organisation for the plantation tour was a bit chaotic. Our driver asked us, which plantation we're visting which we didn't know since it was not written on the tickets. So we just hoped we would end up in the right place, which we did. We got the tickets and were free to move around the plantation and attend the little guided tour ourselves (no extra payment). However I thought it was too little time to fully explore all the houses and exhibitions at the plantation. All in all it was definitely worth it.

Well organized, clearly explained, interesting and beautiful.

The swamp visit with Captain Allen was very interesting. We saw alligators, herons, racoons, etc... Mr Allen knows his subject and gave us a lot of information that only a long experience in the swamp, and the outdoors, can teach. It was a very good experience. We followed by a visit at Laura's plantation. It was also really interesting. Our French guide, Victor, was amazingly knowledgable and attentionated. In addition to his speach, I recommand every visitor to buy the book "Laura's memoires" at the plantation, it's cheaper than in New Orleans stores and it's very usefull. By the way, I bought the smallest bottle of Pralines & Cream at the plantation's store and.... if I would have knew it was so good, I would have buy a big bottle. The store should offer samples to advertize, it's delicious. I was initially worry to book a tour, online, but it was a great one.

A great day visiitng 2 of the iconic things in Louisiana

Had an amazing day. Very efficient pickup. The boat trip was awesone seeing alligators, racoons, birds and even the burial place of a voodoo queen. Was great that it was on private land where they don't hunt so the animals come up close. Guide was great showing us a baby 3 month alligator on the boat and all the different furs of the animals found around there. Kids loved it. Then I choose to sse Laura Plantation which was only about 25 minutes from the boat tour. Ut really showed Creole plantation life and they let you take pictures throughout. Lot of original furnishings and many fascinating stories. Loved it!

A very nice supplement to a New Orleans visit

Prompt pickup and entertaining/knowledgeable by the bus driver to and from the locations and Oak Alley plantation is absolutely gorgeous and is worth the visit alone (our favorite part). We had hoped the swamp tour would be a bit more personalized and smaller scale rather than the dozens of tourists packing into a single large boat, but you definitely see a ton of alligators (due to them being fed by the boat captains) and get a lot of in-depth swamp knowledge. We were glad we made the trip and would recommend it to others with a spare day on a New Orleans trip.

It was worth the money, esp. the Swamp Boat Tour, lots of information.

The Swamp Boat Tour was excellent. We got lots of information from our captain Nolan about the wildlife, Lousiana etc. The time frame was even a bit on the short side. The plantation tour was also very interesting with a good guided tour - visited Oak Alley Plantation- but the whole stay here was too short. I would liked to have at least 30min more. This plantation has a lot to look at. The driving too and from the sites was excellent too. Our driver also told us lots about the city and surroundings. In total a tour I highly recommend.
