“Feeling the Katrina Heartbreak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

This Katrina tour really gave us insight into what happened, why it happened, and the impact it had on the people. We were amazed by the skyscrapers and hospitals still standing vacant, the numerous homes boarded up, and the stories of the people who had to stay on their roof for days, without food, water, and the constant companionship of mosquitos.

“Had a great day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We took the Grand Tour which shows your the Laura Plantation, Oak Alley Plantation and a bayou tour with our guide Muriel. We had such a great time. There was tons of interesting information. The bayou tour on the boat was so much fun and the boat captain was funny and knowledgeable. We were so glad to be able to take part during out time in New Orleans~

“3 happy generations with Tours by Isabelle!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

3 happy generations. My parents (80), our sons (20) and us (50). We booked the Bayous and Plantation tour and it was almost perfect. It could have been a half hour to an hour shorter as we waited quite some time for the Airboat and also at the Plantation but our guide was very knowledgeable. She even helped with our restaurant reservation at night. Our captain was most funny and we all enjoyed the ride and his information. The tour at the Plantation was also very well organized. On time.

“Tour hosted by Dyllan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Wow. We had a group of 10 friends that went down to New Orleans and we had pre-booked this tour prior to departure from home for Laura Plantation, Oak Alley Plantation and Capt Torres swamp tour with lunch @ R&C seafood. Dyllan was funny, informative and a great host. We had cool weather so no alligators in the swamp but we had a blast with Capt. Torres anyways. The food @ R&C seafood was amazing as we tried just about everything on the menu, including alligator. The plantations were beautiful and interesting but exactly what you envisioned them to be but it was real. It was convenient as they picked us up from our hotel, intimate as it was a small group but great that we were big enough group to do on our own. Very reasonably priced for what all we did. Went out of his way to sneak us up to the superdome for a picture and it was a full day.
