New Orleans: Oak Alley Plantation & Airboat Swamp Combo
- Pickup available
- Duration: 8.5 hours
Busy day from the bayou boat ride to Oak Alley tour! The only complaint is the bus ride...if you’re in the back seats every bump the bus hits you will go flying but not the fault of the tour company...typical roads in and around New Orleans. The bayou boat ride was fun and the weather was great! The alligators came out to eat marshmallows so plenty of opportunities to see and take photos of the gators. The Oak Alley plantation was great and informative...it is history...not the best moment in our history but nevertheless a part of our history. It is this history that reminds us to never repeat this sort of behavior. Don’t forget to take the photo of the oak tree arches in front of the house!
Bus driver was great. Picked us up in front of our hotel and was very knowledgeable about the area and a lot of fun. Plantation was wonderful but weather was bad so airboat got canceled. Did get to go on a flat bottom boat though and the captain was great. Four stars because the airboat was canceled but not their fault. Great tour!
The tour of the plantation house was very interesting. However, the best part of the whole experience was the airboat/swamp ride! The guide that we were with was very informative and a lot of fun. I wish I knew his name so I could recommend him for everyone!
Loved the two perspectives of the plantation. The owners and the slaves. Two very different experiences at the same place. Airboat was fun and great energy :)
Great tour, but there is no stop for lunch. If our guide would have given us the warning, we would have made time for the restaurant at Oak Alley Plantation.
