The Oak Alley plantation tour is one of the most magnificent plantation tours near New Orleans because of the 28 evenly spaced, huge Oak Trees that go from the river road to the Plantation House. The Greek Revival home dates back to 1837. Located on the grounds is a restaurant, blacksmith shop, Souvenir Shop and antique farm equipment. Next up is an airboat tour - hold onto your hat! Our New Orleans Airboat Swamp Tour is a high speed adventure that is part tour and part ride. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local Captain. Our airboats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. So, every airboat seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife.


  • Close encounter with wildlife
  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Excellent value for money
  • All entrance fees included

The swamp tour was absolutely incredible, insightful and so much fun...Highly recommended! You only have around 2 hours for the plantation tour, but we found that it was enough time to take the tour, walk the grounds and have dinner at the restaurant (which was very good).

We were very fortunate as Oak Alley just recently reopened. Beautiful place and very few guests. We got incredible pictures! The food at the restaurant was DELICIOUS!! Our airboat swamp tour was definitely the highlight of our trip!! Our guide was our favorite guide EVER and he is what made the experience so GREAT!!

What an amazing day - 2 very different ways of experiencing some of New Orleans delights all wrapped up in one trip. History and nature together - this day out gets you close up to both aspects. Well Done.

What an incredible place to be able to see! The tour guide was amazing! He knew so much! It’s a shame you weren’t aloud to take photos inside the house but the guide made sure he let us know when we could take photos! My partner and I had a beautiful full breakfast at the restaurant before visiting the house, the atmosphere and surroundings were perfect and so relaxing! I’d definitely not miss this tour!

The tour was booked through aCool Destinations, and ran by Louisiana Tour Company. The bus drivers with Louisiana Tour Company were welcoming, informative and punctual. The Plantation provided a history lesson about the quality of life for all on the plantation, and the airboat was a lot of fun!

Both the Plantation and the tour are great, very professional, entertaining and worth the time. As a bonus, we got a great bus driver, who narrated our trip out of town, which was a tour unto itself. One unexpected surprise was how good the restaurant at the plantation was. We were expecting bad cafeteria style food, but we all had excellent meals with great service. The air boat tour is awesome, and our Captain, Danny, was great. Really understood the ecology of the environment, and had answers to all our questions. Plus, he's a great local character. All in all, a great day.
