Overview

On this full-day tour, you'll be driven to the Oak Alley Plantation House, then see the Cajuns of the bayou living and surviving in harmony with the swamps. Located about an hour and a half outside the city of New Orleans, Oak Alley is one of the most magnificent plantation tours because of the 28, evenly spaced, huge Oak Trees that go from the river road to the Plantation House. Experience bayou living where here, the waterways are their highways. From the relaxed comfort of our covered New Orleans Swamp Tour Boats, you will drift slowly past a 2000 year old Indian Burial Mound, a Cajun cemetery and Fishing village! You may see the wildlife that made the Barataria Swamps the Crown Jewel of the Louisiana Purchase. If the 10:45am departure is chosen, these activities will be in reverse.

Highlights

  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Family friendly
  • Get up-close to native wildlife
  • All entrance fees included
  • Hotel pickup included

Both events were great, picked up and dropped off at our location in a timely manner. Plantation was very lovely and interesting but the swamp tour with the Captain was stupendous. He was extremely knowledgeable, fun and a great driver. Would highly recommend

Pickup at our hotel was timely, convenient and our friendly driver was helpful. We were then dropped off for another bus that took us to the Swamp tour. The swamp tour was educational and our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. Our only distraction from our experience was the constant political commentary from the guide. It was irritating and had nothing to do with the swamp tour. There is a gift shop that has beverages and bathrooms. The plantation was beautiful, informative and our guide was delightful. Charlie drove us to both properties and dropped everyone off at their hotel. He’s a good driver and negotiated traffic expertly.

Both tours were enjoyable. Even though the slave cabins are reconstructions, they named some of the slaves who lived there and described their jobs and living conditions. It made it much more impactful. On the swamp tour we saw a few alligators, one even swam right to our boat. The ride to and from all the tours is quite long. The driver who took us to the plantation was very friendly and talked to us about New Orleans and the surrounding area all the way there. The hotel pickup was a bonus not having to worry about parking. It does add more to the day, but makes it very convenient. If anything doesn’t go well, this tour company will make sure to set it straight.

We enjoyed everything about this tour. Our driver Gary was very entertaining & knowledgeable. The only suggestion I have is maybe find a way to have a little more time for the self guided things & longer lunch break.

Barbara our bus driver and guide was helpful and informative and a wonderful source of local information about New Orleans and the surrounding area. Our guide on the tour of the bayou was a very interesting character and also full of local knowledge. Oak Alley was beautiful. It’s acknowledgement of its history during the dark days of slavery and the displays about that part of its story were well put together.This is a tour I would highly recommend to anyone on their first trip to New Orleans.

We had a great Gray Line tour today of Oak Alley Plantation and then the swamp tour. We really enjoyed Jim’s extensive historical knowledge and his ability to make it relevant in present time. His humor kept us laughing as he tied things together. Dwayne was a thoughtful and careful driver who got us everywhere on time while still driving safely. The tour guide for the swamp tour had wide range of interesting things to share about the swamp, the wildlife that lives there and how people interact with the swamp. It was certainly a good investment of our time here in New Orleans !!!

Having arrived in New Orleans after booking this tour from the uk, we were impressed with the prompt arrival of the pick up bus. Our hotel was not on the list but we added it in the comments section and all ran smoothly. Barbara, our driver, was both informative and entertaining and the coach was comfortable and air conditioned. The swamp tour was fantastic with the expert narration of our captain. Many close encounters with alligators and an informative guide to the swamp and marshlands. The plantation tour was also very good and the connection with slavery was never hidden and was,again, very informative and moving. I would highly recommend this tour. Great value for money.
