Surprised how nice everything was. Lovely day, friendly staff, GREAT food, Charles the narrator was awesome, informative and funny. Bat drinks too expensive and you had to purchase something to drink ( water, tea, etc) for lunch but again, a really fun afternoon. Not crowded but would stay away during summer months since boat holds up to 800 people which would be way to crowded I feel. We had maybe 150 which was pleasant.

This experience was very lovely! I did not do the lunch but from what I saw they had some great food. This is a great activity for a family event, couples day out, or even just something to do to get away. The only thing I would say is if you are not from New Orleans, make a plan to park and make a plan to arrive early. personally, I would use an Uber to get to the activity unless you're willing to pay for parking.

Was a laid back trip down the river. Got to see a couple navy ships, some pretty plantation houses, sugar processing plant (in need of some serious maintenance lol) The stop at the battleground was nice. There were guys dressed as soldiers and they demonstrated musket firing. A park ranger gave a little bit of history. If your looking for thrilling look elsewhere but if your wanting an easy going river stroll this is for you.
