First stop - the beautiful Manchac Swamp where you'll enjoy a tour of our privately owned swamp. This swamp is occupied only by Cajun Pride boats which means fewer distractions during your tour and an impressive amount of alligator and other wildlife found in this eco-system. Our boat is covered and comfortable with opening viewing and the ability to stand and walk around which allows for more photo opportunities and full viewing of the beauty and excitement of the swamp.

Next stop - we'll bring you to the plantation of your choice: Laura or Oak Alley Plantation:
Laura: A Creole Plantation was built in 1805. Let the “Memoirs of Laura” transport you into the lives of 4 generations of this plantation’s Creole men, women, slaves and children. The fully guided experience includes the Big House, gardens and the original 1840s slave cabins in which the West-African folktales of Compair Lapin (later known as Br'er Rabbit) were recorded over 140 years ago.

Oak Alley Plantation was built in 1837-39. It is famous for its alley of 28 evenly spaced Live Oak trees, believed to be at least 100 years older than the big house. Perhaps the most photographed plantation ever, Oak Alley has been the setting for such motion pictures as "Interview with a Vampire", "Primary Colors" and the wedding of Bo and Hope from the daytime soap opera, "Days of our Lives".

    Cool Experience

    It was a cool trip and very knowledgeable and our guide for the Swamp Tour was awesome his name was Capt. Allen!!! The plantation was beautiful we did the Oak Valley. My only complaint is that in the Swamp Tour we only saw 1 big gator most of the ones we saw were just babies. All in all though I would recommend it to someone.

    Great day trip to see another side of Louisiana!

    The Swap and Plantation Combo Tour with Cajun Pride was well worth the time and price! A great way to get out of the city for a day trip to see both the swamps and a plantation. The bus staff as well as the swamp guides were friendly and informative. Would highly recommend to those who are interested in seeing both these unique aspects of Louisiana in one day.

    Swamp Tour & Plantation Tour

    Loved the trip but wished that we had more time at the plantation. The trip could have started earlier.

    Good tour

    Felt a bit chaotic. Was not given a pick up time and had to ring which, without access to a mobile phone was a bit of a pain. Staff were ok but not particularky friendly. Swamp tour was good and plantation visit was excellent.

    Our Cajun Pride Experience

    Excellent day with Cajun Pride. From the swamp to the remarkable path of Oak Alley, the day was very enjoyable. My only suggestion, and why I only gave it a 4, is to allow time for a lunch break or include one in the day. It would have been awesome to experience an authentic meal away from the city. Captain Danny was AWESOME!!!!

    Just a great day put for the price. They pick you up, you do the swamp tour and then do a plantation. They then drop you off. Cajun pride tours were great.

    Amazing Adventure

    Just spent a fun day in bayou at Manchac Swamp. Captain Dave was great-humorous yet very informative about life in bayou. Next was afternoon at Oak Alley Plantation. What a beautiful step into the past as we toured this lovely home with a costumed Southern Belle. Great day!
