What people are saying about New Orleans
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!
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Swamp Boat tour. When we got to the sight, I was very pleased to find restrooms that were not only real restrooms (versus a port-a-potty or something) but clean well-maintained restrooms. The boat captain we had, Captain Bishop, was great! He really made sure that everyone on the boat had the same experience no matter which side of the boat you were on. The plantation tour was very interesting too.
Value for money was great. The Swamp Tour was the highlight of the day. We saw numerous alligator and the captain shared good information about the surroundings: wildlife, vegetation etc. Plantation tour was also very informative. Bus driver was very very pleasant and interactive. He made several recommendation about the city or New Orleans: things to see and things to avoid.
Our transportation guide (Big Joe) was very informative and drove safely. The ride to the swamp was a little bumpy. The swamp tour more than met our expectations. The history at the plantation was awesome. The tour guides were very professional. Leisure time to explore the grounds area made you feel back in the time.
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.
