This tour is excellent! Our guide Ellen was incredible - a local with all the facts. The tour covers all the neighborhoods with all the history of how they came to be. This tour also does a great job with covering Katrina. Ellen answered all our questions as only a local can. Highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants... More

Very professional knowledgeable driver who picked us up from our hotel. Swamp tour was amazing - and the local man who took us on the pontoon boat was so genuine and kind. Loved the plantation tours as well. We had a great meal at one of them. Great day.

I learned so much in just a few hours. Our boat tour was cold, given that it was January and we didn't see any... More

Was great to be collected at the door and on time in a clean van. The driver was very knowledgeable and we were able to combine both a swamp tour and plantation tour in one day whilst being given information about New Orleans and surrounds on our drive. The plantations were wonderful and it was great to get the inside... More

The van was on time, clean, spacious and comfortable. The guide was friendly and courteous, as well as showing and explaining several other mansions on the way to our destination. I had my doubts going with this company because the price was higher than all others, but I feel it was worth the extra money to ensure a nice ride,... More

We absolutely loved this tour, our bus driver was on time and courteous, he was also really knowledgeable of the area and its history. We were on a small airboat with 4 other people (6 in total) and it was phenomenal. Although December and cold we still saw 5 alligators and our guide was informative and a lot of fun.... More
