Very fun tour!

Very professionally done. We had a delay traveling and they re-booked us with no fuss. Muriel was very well informed and communicated a great deal of interesting information, as well as navigating the traffic with ease. The Bayou boat tour was a wonderful experience. We got to feed marshmallows to alligators! The plantation lunch was excellent and the plantation guides were very good.

Should provide cold water. Did not receive confirmation of pickup and time until after tour via email. Had to make a couple of phone calls to get this info.

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.
