Overall, a good trip

Caveat: the "all day" trip isn't really. You get picked up from hotel 10-10:30 and travel out to the swamp; there you want till 12 N when the swamp tour starts. Then you travel to the plantations and your tour starts around 2 and you leave at 4:30 getting you back to NOLA around 6. You spend a lot of time in a bus; in spite of this we liked the experience. Our swamp guide was great, knew all the history, plants and animals around the swamp. We saw lots of alligators about 3-4 ft long, birds and even raccoon (who come for the marshmallows thrown from the boat); no deer or others. The facilities at Cajun Pride were OK, the new restrooms were great. They should have more and better lunch food if we aren't leaving till noon. We learned all about the different plantations, and esp which movies were filmed there, on the way to Oak Alley. Our driver was great, telling us stories. The Oak Alley guide was fantastic and we got to walk around after, and shoot pictures of the 200+ year old "oak alley". Great trip!

Our bachelorette group did the combo tour! It was a great time both at the swamp tours and the plantation tour. Everything was on time. Drivers were friendly. We really enjoyed our experience!

We had a lot of fun finding gators, listening to the laws of the Bayou, and holding s baby gator. The plantation was amazing our guide was very informative and knew the history well. The Laura plantation was beautiful and well kept. Must see!

The swamp tour: Bishop our tour guide was awesome and very knowledgeable. The plantation tour was too crowded we had to wait multiple times due to too many people in the house which left no time to tour grounds or take pics of the beautiful trees before we had to get back on the bus.

This experience was great. We went to the swamp first and saw lots of gators, and even got to hold a baby one! The captain was very knowledgeable, entertaining, and funny. The only thing is we got stuck in the middle of the boat so it was hard to see sometimes, but the captain would take his time so you could get up and move around if you needed a better view. Rose was our guide for the Laura Plantation and once again she didn’t disappoint. The was passionate about the story behind this plantation and it made the experience that much better. We wish we had more time to explore this plantation. Transportation to and from the locations was good as well.
