We were a group of 8, and we all give this tour 5 stars. We were glad that we were on the slow boat in the swamp, because the airboat scares the alligators and birds away. Oak Alley Plantation is beautiful, especially the grounds and gorgeous trees!

Both locations provided a lot of historical information. The time alotted at both was more than enough to take in the sights and surroundings.
