We did the swamp tour. Awesome from beginning to end! - Before we went down to New Orleans, I called the tour number because I was worried about the weather. They were so patient and nice. -The logistics of getting back and forth (New Orleans/Lafitte) was perfect. Billy (driver/guide) was very funny and informative. -The airboat operator/guide maneuvered through the... More

We did the Grand tour which we visited the Swamp and the different plantations (Oak Alley and Laura) this I have to say was the best thing we did here in NOLA. The swamp tour was fun and informative. We even saw alligators. Both plantations were beautiful with so much history. We especially enjoyed our dinner at Oak Alley Plantation.... More

I took the Grand Tour. Kat was a very friendly, knowledgeable tour guide. On the way to the Swamp Tour, she told us about many aspects of New Orleans history. After this was the Oak Alley Plantation where we had a full-course meal which was very good. After that was the Laura Plantation, which has a very rich history. On... More

We toured Laura Plantation and did a drive by of Oak Alley one day, and on another went to Lafitte for a swamp tour. On both occasions Niji was our guide. She was extremely knowledgeable, giving amusing running history on the drives to location. She obviously has great passion for her chosen home here in Louisiana. We run a bed... More

My husband and I booked our spots on the Grand Tour while visiting New Orleans to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary. From the beginning we had a great experience with this company as they promptly and courteously responded to our emails and questions. On the day of our tour we were picked up by John and had a small tour... More

Everything that I expected was delivered in droves They are on the ball replying to emails very quickly. The guide had worked for the company for 16 years and he knew his stuff, I think his name was Joseph from memory. I did the swamp and plantation day tour . It was just fantastic. The lunch which was included in... More

Billy was our tour guide, and "Who Dat" was worked into his entertaining dialogue along the highways of LA to each of our anticipated stops of interest! Loved every bit of our day trip, including the torrential rain storm on the way back to the hotel. This tour was one of the highlights of my 7 day NOLA adventure! Gators,... More

I booked the Grand Tour. The guide was Billy and my group was only 6 of us, which made it feel liked a personally guided tour of the area. As we drove to the venues, Billy told us about about area and was very enthusiastic and interested in ensuring we all had a great day.. The combination of the Laura... More

This was a wonderful and informative tour. Billy was very entertaining and actually stopped at a snowbowl stand in one of the parks for us to get a treat. The lighthouse tour was a pleasant surprise and a nice break in the middle of the van tour. Although I wouldn't really recommend this to younger children because of the length... More

We only had one day to site see and wanted a tour that would give us a lot of bang for our buck. We got that with the City and Katrina tour. Billy kept us entertained and informed. We saw all of the beautiful old homes and heard about their history. We saw the homes that Brad Pitt is building... More
