The pick up was more or less on time. The drivers were providing us with info along the way. Good energy in the coach thanks to the drivers. The oak alley plantation tour was too short for us but that’s part of the game. The guided tour was very interesting. The airboat was great, we saw many gators, got all info we wanted and the captain even brought a baby gator for us to take pics with! Both tripshock and the Louisiana tour agreed to reschedule our tour because of the weAther which is a plus, as we did enjoy the tour all the more because of the clear blue sky.

Plantation was lovely. Bibop tour guide on swamp tour was fantastic. Truly knowledgeable and a little folklore mixed in. The small airboat is the way to see the swamp.

The swamp tour was incredible! Loved the airboat ride. Saw many gators. Our guide was great! Knew so much and was very funny. It was chilly but we rented blankets from the dock which was perfect. Bring one if you go when it’s cool!!!!!! The plantation was good but we simply didn’t have enough time to see it all. We ate lunch first so that put us behind. The restaurant is great and I’m glad we ate there but had we known we may have just grabbed a sandwich at the cafe instead and saw more of the plantation.
