Driver was knowledgeable about the New Orleans area and made the drive out to the swamp and plantation enjoyable and fast. The swamp boat ride was great. Captain Tom shared a lot of information about the Bayou and allowed us to hold a small alligator at the end. The Oak Alley Plantation grounds was beautiful. The tour guides on premises were very knowledgeable and friendly. I would suggest touring the home first then navigate the grounds as the time there does go by fast. Overall, great experience!
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the Swamp Boat tour. When we got to the sight, I was very pleased to find restrooms that were not only real restrooms (versus a port-a-potty or something) but clean well-maintained restrooms. The boat captain we had, Captain Bishop, was great! He really made sure that everyone on the boat had the same experience no matter which side of the boat you were on. The plantation tour was very interesting too.
Value for money was great. The Swamp Tour was the highlight of the day. We saw numerous alligator and the captain shared good information about the surroundings: wildlife, vegetation etc. Plantation tour was also very informative. Bus driver was very very pleasant and interactive. He made several recommendation about the city or New Orleans: things to see and things to avoid.
The Laura Plantation Tour was the best tour that we have had at a plantation. Joseph was our tour guide and he did amazing at explaining the history and culture of the plantation. I highly recommend visiting this plantation if you want to hear the real life story of the history and people that have lived there. Great experience.
Our bus driver was very kind and knowledgeable! The swamp tour was amazing! We weren’t expecting to see any alligators due to the weather however we saw 4! The plantation was also fantastic! Amazing people! Be sure to bring cash for tipping the bus driver and boat captain! Will definitely be back to Cajun Pride!
