NOLA - Swamp/Plantation Excursion

about 4 months ago
Traveled to New Orleans to sail on a cruise. Arrived early to experience the New Orleans area. Chose the Swamp/Plantation combo tour and we're very happy we did. Our guide in the swamp from Cajun Pride was beyond excellent. SO INFORMATIVE. We all thought "airboat", but so happy we didn't go that route. The slower traverse gave us more time to experience it all. The plantation was pretty great too. Amazing sights and the background information was enlightening. Only downside......wish there had been more time in both locations. I highly recommend the tour!

Combo Swamp Tour and Laura Plantation

We learned a lot on this dual excursion. It was fascinating to tour the swamp and hear the tales of our entertaining boat captain. Alligators rock! The plantation tour was also excellent due to our young, articulate, and informative guide. The only thing I would change is more time on our own in the Laura Plantation museum. It highlighted personal stories from the lives and living conditions of the Laura plantation slaves. We appreciated the historical research.

The swamp tour was an amazing experience! Being on the bayou, in all of nature was quite refreshing. The captain was knowledgeable, and thorough in his presentation on the reptiles, vegetation, existing swamp stereotypes and life on the bayou. Plantation tour presentation was rather boring.
