Our tour guide john was phenomenal! The Boat tour was fun, relaxing and educational. The Laura estate was gorgeous and Michael was very entertaining as well as informative. The food at Oak Alley was fabulous and the plantation was breath taking! My only complaint is our guide at Oak Alley was boring and lacked enthusiasm for the information he shared. He spoke like a 5th Fraser reading out of a text book.

John was an amazing guide. Very friendly and knowledgeable. Also tour guide, Stephen, at Lara Plantation was awesome! Bayou tour was cold and we didn’t see much wildlife but it was fun and we learned a lot about the area. Would highly recommend this tour package.

While I enjoyed the swamp tour, and the plantation tour I thought Jerry seemed a little unfriendly and his driving made some us a little uneasy. He seemed to try to pass other cars and changed his mind when he saw other cars coming. He seemed to be in a hurry. Perhaps swamp tours should only be combined with 1 plantation. Instead of 2.

The tour was fantastic our tour guide and the captain of the boat were so knowledgeable about the history and current status of the area. You could feel the love and pride that both men have for New Orleans and their jobs. I'm a senior citizen and they went out of their way to make certain that I was comfortable and safe. I highly recommend the tour for anyone visiting New Orleans. I learned so much during the tour. There is so much history and beauty to experience in New Orleans. I can't wait to return and i will definitely call your company to schedule other tours. Thank you Mr.Billy for not leaving me :)

We really enjoyed this tour. It made the most of our short time in New Orleans. My friends had never been to Louisiana before so I wanted to make sure they experienced a bayou and some plantations. Oak Alley is a must for new visitors as it is what an "ideal" Southern plantation looks like. Lunch at the site was perfect. Isabelle Tours made sure that my food allergy situation was handlded. I also loved this tour because it includes Laura Plantation, and their tour is incredible. They present it in storytelling form and focus heavily on how plantation life impacted those who made it all work: the slaves. We also liked our cajun bayou boat tour. Our guide Madeleine was a chatacter and kept all of us entertained and informed. I would take this tour again. We all loved it!
