Loved the combo tour-both the swamp and Oak Alley. Even though it was January we saw about five baby alligators and got to hold an alligator. Guide was great. Oak Alley Plantation was beautiful and pictures don't do it justice. Only complaint would be that we would have loved extra time at the plantation. Didn't get to see everything we wanted including the movie.

My sister and I booked the swamp and Laura plantation tour. They picked us up right in front of our hotel in a very nice and clean bus. All employees were EXTREMELY friendly. Our swamp guide was Capitan Tom! And he was AMAZING. We came at a time where there wasn't many gators out due to the cold weather but we were able to see other wildlife and a few young gators. He always had a female gator for us to hold! He was very knowledgeable of the swamp and was very entertaining! He is one of the few original guides of this swamp. From the swamp we were taken by bus to Laura Plantation. It was a very nice tour with a hearty history. I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends and family! Thank you guys for an amazing experience!
