    Destrehan Plantation
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Get picked up at your hotel in New Orleans to begin this combination day tour, which lasts a little more than 6 hours. First, visit the Destrehan Plantation, built in 1787 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Travel through time from the French and Spanish Colonial periods through the Antebellum grandeur of the sugar barons to the ravages of the Civil War and the rebirth of reconstruction. You will find yourself immersed in the rich history of Louisiana when French was the language, and the white gold of sugar drove the economy. An 1811 slave revolt museum/cabin is on the grounds along with its massive oak trees. Family stories of those free and enslaved set against the fabric of history will intrigue every visitor to the site. A house tour is approximately 1 hour, with time to walk the grounds and see the slave cabin. This includes time for lunch (own expense) if time permits.

I would give this a 5 star if the plantation tour didn't try to fit 20+ people into the small 10*10 rooms. It was informative and many interesting thing but...
Now the airboat was amazing the alligators we're coming up to the boat no large ones were seen but that was because of hurricane Ida. But still 5 to 7 ft is not bad.

As you can see I don’t leave a lot of reviews. I only take the time and something was really special this tour is just that we were on an 18 person airboat. What really made the trip special was the driver. Chaz was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a very close experience. I have not tried any of the other drivers but I can’t believe there would be anyone better.
Myself my wife and two children 19 and 21 all had the best time.

Chaz,

Thank you for a great time.

We really enjoyed every aspect of both parts of the tour. The only reason for the 4 stars was that our driver (tour bus) to the airboat, never stopped to get us anything to eat which was stated on the brochure (and we *plus another couple* were on time, just for to make sure that we did) and when we pulled up to our airboat destination.... we asked what happened to our stop at the Wendy’s (which was stated on the brochure) and his comment was “Oh, I didn’t know y’all were hungry”. Then his failure to communicate anything about when we meet up afterwards left us wondering if it was his 1st day. Besides that, I highly recommend this tour .... especially the Airboat aspect of it. Our airboat captain was hilarious. Can’t remember his name... but he has a long white beard. He was the real MVP.

Air boat captain was knowledgeable, entertaining and pretty daring, great tour. Saw 5-6 alligators, most came close to air boat. Destrehan plantation tour was interesting, humbling and beautiful. Went on large air boat, small air boats go faster from past experience, but trip costs more. Bus driver on way out was very entertaining and informative. Experience was well worth it and I would definitely recommend.
