We booked a half day plantation/airboat tour. We were picked up at our hotel in an air-conditioned van. After picking up the others, the tour started. On our drive to Destrehan plantation our driver told us all about the history of the area. It was great and we learned so much. Once we arrived at Destrehan, we were greeted by... More

Thanks so much to Katha and everyone at Tours by Isabelle! It was the highlight of my trip. The bayou trip was incredible, and the plantations were breathtaking. And the whole thing was complimented by the extensive knowledge and friendliness of our guide, Katha. I'd recommend this to anyone!

This is a great tour and learned a lot about post Katrina. Ginnie was a wonderful tour guide. She knows NO and explained the politics after the Katrina. Highly recommended this tour.

Ginnie was great! She had more details about the plantations than the tour guides who worked at the plantation. Great personality!

The swamp tour was the highlight of my trip to New Orleans. John was knowledgeable and friendly and made sure our comfort came first, which meant a lot in 90+ degree weather!

Our tour guide, John, was wonderful and very knowledgable. He picked us up at our hotel on time and drove us safely to our airboat adventure. He was kind and full of great tips. Our airboat tour was also amazing (definitely check it out!). This is a trustworthy, top-notch company!

Ginnie, our tour leader for the Grand Tour of both the Laura and Oak Alley Plantations, was an absolute treasure trove of historical and cultural information, Our trips to and between the sites were filled with her wonderful insights and anecdotes and details we could not have easily picked-up as tourists. No question was too obscure. And, though she didn't... More

We flew to Louisiana for a wedding in Opelousas and spent 4 days in New Orleans. The Airboat Tour was the last thing we did before we flew back to Michigan. And talk about “saving the best for last”, it was truly the best experience ever. Our Captain was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with the best experience that we... More

My husband and I had never been to New Orleans before. We were looking forward to the tour. Soon after we had checked into our hotel we received a confirmation call from Tours by Isabelle letting us know our pick up time the next morning. Ginnie was 10 minutes early & from the moment we met her we had a... More
