What People Are Saying About New Orleans
From pick up in front of hotel to drop out the day was enjoyed by all 3 in our group.
Best tour and guide. The history of the bayou and its' people are not to be missed, filling in the gaps of a sometimes forgotten time of settlement in this part of the country. Our guide really educated the group and had extensive knowledge of the area.
This entire experience was amazing! All of the guides and drivers were incredible people. The staff were all friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. I was very impressed with the swamp tour! I loved that the boat was gliding peacefully through the swamps so we could actually see the wildlife. They all knew the boat, so they followed us, which was too cool! The plantation tour was GORGEOUS! We chose Oak Alley, and it was definitely the right choice if you love feeling the earth. The trees all have such a majestic beauty, it takes a person's breath away. The plantation main home's history is rich, and the grounds are full of a mystical feeling.
The tour is billed as a full-day tour, running 10:30-5:30, with a pick-up 30 min before the tour begins. We took this to mean we would be picked up at 10, and the driver did not get to us until 10:50, then we still had to go out and pick up other people. It turns out the swamp tour starts at noon, and the driver of the bus starts picking people up at 10:30. The swamp tour was very good, our guide (Brandon) was really knowledgeable and informative. We were then rushed to the plantation tour, and had very little time to see the remainder of the plantation after the guided tour of the main house, so we missed a lot of things we would have liked to have seen. Our driver rushed us out of there at 4:30 to get us back to the hotel in New Orleans for 5:30 so that part of the time is correct. Bottom line, split the tours; go on the swamp tour one day (half day really) and the plantation tour on your own time another day so you can see the slave quarters, sugar processing and civil war displays.
The guide was able to provide a lot of information and bring out gators, racoons and herrins, simply by calling them! We enjoyed the swamp and the tour.
