We had the most amazing bus guide (Jim). He talked to us the entire time in the bus telling us about the history, culture, etc. He had the perfect combination of knowledge and humor.

We had a great time on the tour. George and Elizabeth were fantastic. George drove the bus through traffic like a piece of cake and Elizabeth, our tour guide, was very informative and very friendly. The plantation tour was good, pretty laid back and uneventful, and the swap tour was incredible. T-Tom was our captain and explained everything just as if we were living in the swamp. We got to see plenty of alligators and never felt unsafe. Highly recommend this package tour.

Wonderful tour guide and tour! Just enough information and direction, while still allowing us time to explore by ourselves. Very well put together and super convenient since transport is included. Guide was both very knowledgeable, well connected to the area, and engaging. He really brought the history to life. We ran into a thunderstorm right before the swamp tour, and our guide waited it out for 30/40 mins rather than giving up and canceling. We ended up having a wonderful boat ride once the rain clouds cleared. 10/10 would recommend.

Excellent and beautiful tour. We booked through Gray Line and Dionne was an excellent tour guide! Extremely knowledgeable and you could tell she really cared about the area and its history. Dwayne was great as well. Our tour guide on the swamp tour was Bishop who was equally great, and hilarious.
