From rugged Louisiana bayou to refined Southern majesty, this combo wildlife and plantation tour delivers the best of...
All around a fantastic trip! Our bus driver Big Joe was so knowledgeable and informed us of everything from the best places to eat in town to historic facts about New Orleans and surrounding areas. Capt Tom with the swamp tour was equally amazing, I could take that tour a hundred times and not get bored!! I highly recommend seeing Oak Alley Plantation; it’s so beautiful that you almost can’t believe it’s a real place. I highly recommend taking one of these tours, worth every penny!
Although we had to rush through the plantation tour because not having enough time at the end, it was a wonderful experience for our family with varying ages. I would recommend this fun and educational experience.
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!

Can't Believe I Held a Gator

How did you discover this activity?

I was looking for discounts on plantation tours and stumbled upon TripShock. I was astounded to find that the swamp tour and plantation tour with travel both to and from the hotel was less than what a plantation tour alone would cost! It was a great activity with great reviews for a great price!

When did you book your tour compared to the departure date?

I booked the activity about a week prior to the activity.

Why did you choose this activity?

My friend and I wanted to experience both a swamp and plantation tour, but did not have a car in the area, so this activity provided us the best of everything at a remarkable price! The reviews on this activity were also exceptional, which made making the decision to book easy!

How did you get to the activity location?

The tour offered hotel pickup from pretty much any hotel in the French Quarter.

What was your experience with the activity’s staff?

Captain Danny at the Swamp Tour was very entertaining and filled with Southern Charm! He gave us the history of the swamp, educated us about the different wildlife, and let us all hold his baby alligator Hank. The guides at Oak Alley were very friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the home.

Highlights or memories you and your group will take from the trip?

Getting to hold a baby alligator and watch Captain Danny feed the alligator’s marshmallows was a very fun experience and the air conditioning on the tour bus was a welcome relief from the hot a humid Louisiana air!

Spending time on the grounds at Oak Alley was also time well spent. On our return trip our bus guide drove us by several other plantation along Plantation Alley, including ones which were used in the filming of Django Unchained. I would definitely recommend going to the Laura Plantation as opposed to Oak Alley as it is a much more colorful and vibrant plantation filled with history and the guides there are tremendous!

Would you recommend this activity to another group like yours? Why or why not?

This activity is definitely something geared toward adults or families with older children, particularly for the plantation tour. The swamp tour is good for all ages and groups though!
