    So fun!

    Go on this tour!!! Our guide Nancy was so kind and knowledgeable. It is fantastic to see the differences between the two plantations and this tour really highlights the comparison. The food was excellent. Get the bread pudding desset at won't be sorry!!!! The swamp tour was fascinating. You get a better view from the front of the boat, but if you have a loud group you can't hear anything the guide says. You also get to hold a live baby alligator! I can't say enough great things about this tour. It was a highlight of our trip!

    Great Time!!

    Ryan and Duane took such great care of us. Felt a bit rushed at Oak Alley, but loved Laura Plantation. Cannot say enough about Captain Danny at Cajun Fried Swamp Tours was so fun and engaging.

    So glad you enjoyed your tour. Oak Alley is large, but Laura's story is captivating. We will be sure to tell Captain Danny you enjoyed his swamp tour as well!
