Not COVID safe but otherwise good
Ken

The guide/driver was really accommodating and friendly to no fault However poor performance due to not fully adhering to COVID rules / safety concern 1) return bus was pretty packed. combined from other tour 2) guests were either not wearing masks or not wearing it properly (over nose and mouth) during BOARDING or when seated in the bus with no one enforcing it otherwise The loud group of about 10 tourists at the return bus speaking loudly mostly without masks on and drinking alcohol in the bus just made things worse. (I was glad I was the first one off the bus in the return trip) One passenger was speaking without his mask on sitting right at the back of an elderly couple (this is just wrong) Recommend to self drive with a rental car unless you’re otherwise not concerned with the possibility of the same risk

Swamp Tour

The Swamp Tour was OK - not too swampy. Did not expect to see alligators since we were visiting in December, but we did see one. Have been on other "swamp" tours that really were in a swamp environment.

I'm sorry that the tour was not what you expected. I see that you went on the tour boat, which requires it to be more in the open water due to the size. I recommend the small airboat in the future, which will allow the boat to fit into the smaller waterways and be able to go deeper in the marsh and swamp.

Long day but well worth it. A little disappointed that our bus driver didn't talk much during the hour-long drive. The plantation is beautiful and very well kept. We are at the restaurant on-site and the food was very good with friendly staff. I got a few souvenirs in the gift shop. Swamp tour was interesting. Guide was very knowledgeable. Lots of gators!

We are sorry for your experience with the driver. Our drivers are only responsible for the transportation portion to the plantation and are not required to narrate as he or she is driving. However, some of our drivers willingly do, but it all depends on the driver. We do appreciate the positive review and feedback. Thank you!

This was a wonderful tour! The plantation was beautiful and the food there was delicious. The swamp tour was excellent and the guide, Chaz, gave us many opportunities to see alligators up close and personnal.

2 great places to visit on any trip to NOLA-- both quite close to city, to make a day trip to both feasible. Well organized and co-ordinated trip though perhaps a little pricey -really just transport & tickets for the sights- both of which were great- get a real feel for the history & culture of the area. A bit more time at Oak Alley to allow for lunch maybe? Swamp trip just about right amount of time. Glad I picked the slower, covered boat option- other options little on the noisy side. Guide made the effort to give lot of info- perhaps a little too much alligator chasing at times... good sometimes just to enjoy the ambience of the place. Over all v enjoyable.

Oak Alley Plantation it very beautiful and big. and my favorite is Swamp Boat Tour The boat ride was fantastic - but rain and cold so we only saw 1 gators, but the scenery was beautiful and it was most enjoyable.

Plantation and Swamp Tour New Orleans

The Oak Alley Plantation was a fantastic experience highlighting life on a plantation. From life in the beautiful house to the life of their slaves. The Swamp Boat Tour was great fun and provided a history of the swamp to the flora and fauna in The Bayou and the sighting of the alligators! Both experiences were suitable for all age groups.

Swamp tour, complete with alligators in the wild, was a success due in large part by the stories told by our capable and captivating Cajun boat captain. The Oak Alley tour, in turn, struck the appropriate balance between a view of the life and home of an elite 1850s sugar plantation family, and the horrific practice of human slavery that made their lifestyle possible. All was thoughtfully and professionally presented. If you have the time, I recommend this tour.
