GREAT History and Adventure excursion!!
about 2 months ago
We could have spent much more time at Oak Alley as was extremely informative, insightful, and was a small peak into Southern history of plantation life (lives, crops, slaves, battles). Our home guide was excellent and was very knowledgeable about the home and the people who lived on the plantation. All the exhibits are well worth viewing and be sure to spend time with the lecturing staff by the slaves homes. Ask questions; she is amazing!!! We then were bused to the swamps where we boarded a 9 person air boat. We wanted to go on a smaller boat as figured it to be more intimate and informative and boy, were we right!! Our "driver" was Danny and he has lived there all his life and took us into many nooks and crannies of the Bayou. He often stopped the boat to enable us to take in many sized alligators (fed marshmallows to a very large one that came along side our boat...really cool!), different birds, swamp flowers, and hanging moss. He also carried with him a very young alligator whom we all were able to hold as he explained the details about the life of the gators. I.e: growth, life span, food source, etc. Danny also gave us a GREAT boat ride in the wide waterway and the fun part of that was when he turned the boat in a way that sprayed us to where we were totally drenched. It was a wonderful way to cool down that sunny day! All in all, it was pretty much a perfect day!!!

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.
