Full description
Visit the Oak Alley Plantation as you begin this full-day combination tour from New Orleans. Feel as if you're on the set of Gone with the Wind as you enjoy a house tour conducted by guides in period costume. Next, head out on a swamp tour and wetlands adventure. From the relaxed comfort of a covered swamp boat, drift slowly past an Indian burial mound, a Cajun cemetery, and a fishing village. Be on the lookout for wildlife, including snakes and gators. Drift by moss-draped trees and along small waterways as you hear commentary about swampland life. Boats are equipped with a roof, restroom, cushioned seats, and windows that can be raised or lowered according to the weather.

It was great and a lot of fun! Our guide was fun and funny. The swamp was a lot of fun? Enjoyed that a lot. The plantation was beautiful! So enjoyed being able to see it. The tour of the house however was too quick. I know there trying to get as many groups in and having to deal with the Covid stuff, but it was rushed. That too was also disappointment with the combo tour. We didn't get a lot of time at the plantation. We didn't really have time to look around the grounds. We had to rush through the slaves quarters. There is a restaurant and Cafe on premises, but we barely had any time to eat before we had to rush to the bus to leave. We're happy that we sent and that we did this tour, but we just wished we had more time to spend, especially at the plantation.

We enjoyed our driver. The plantation is as beautiful as you can.imagine. for the price, the tour was very, very short though. Not much info on the day to day activities and really only owner info. I would have liked to know.more about the life of the people who really ran it, the slaves. It seems even today they are forgotten. Plan to spend more than a few hours so yiy can enjoy the very good restaurant on site and the famous Oak Alley. Worth a visit, but research the history before going.

Was a wonderful day! Our driver was great and added to the tour by pointing out different places movies were filmed enroute. The Swamp tour was awesome, very knowledgeable and humorous guide--saw lots of alligators and learned a lot about life on the bayou. The plantation portion was stunning--great guide inside and plenty of time to see the rest of the property and amazing oaks! A real eye opener to history! Sandwiches at the gift shop were good and great gift selection!
