Driver was knowledgeable about the New Orleans area and made the drive out to the swamp and plantation enjoyable and fast. The swamp boat ride was great. Captain Tom shared a lot of information about the Bayou and allowed us to hold a small alligator at the end. The Oak Alley Plantation grounds was beautiful. The tour guides on premises were very knowledgeable and friendly. I would suggest touring the home first then navigate the grounds as the time there does go by fast. Overall, great experience!

The driver Alton was great, he made the drive enjoyable and informational. I would have liked more time than the 2 hrs allotted. Further for the price asked comparable to experience I think it was a bit too high. If something else was added like a discount ice cream or meal that would've helped.

Pretty good tour. If we hadn't needed to eat lunch, I think the amount of time at Oak Valley would have been fine, but we didn't get to see everything. I recommend some motion sickness meds if you're sensitive to waves/water - the boat tour was pretty wild!

It was a bit cold that day but the guided house tour was very interesting and fun. I would recommend this tour only on a warmer day. There were a few displays we didn’t go to because of the cold.

I understand with COVID-19 we weren’t able to go in. It would have been nice to get the whole experience. The history was a very humbling experience. Loved it
