The combination Oak Alley Plantation experience and airboat ride in the Mississippi Delta was an excellent excursion. Transportation from major hotels in the New Orleans area was punctual and comfortable. The Oak Alley portion included a house tour and access to the historic grounds. Lunch is not included but there was a cafe with coffee, sandwiches and snacks, as well as a restaurant with specialty cocktails and delicious, local fare. The airboat ride was our favorite part. Captain Ernie was delightful and informative with a vast knowledge of the area and all its flora and fauna. And yes, there were alligators! I highly recommend this experience if you are traveling in the area.
The cruise was awesome - the ship is actually paddle driven which helps to add authenticity to the entire experience. We booked the dinner cruise and the food was excellent. Once arriving and on board your taken back in time with jazz music, laughter, good food and people mingling with dancing on the upper deck. Great fun for all ages.
Airboat rides are always fun. This one was fun and informative and the Bayou is magnificent.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great time.
Had a great time. Our captain was knowledgeable and learned a lot.
