Experience Cajun Country: Swamp Boat Adventure and Plantations Full-Day Tour from New Orleans

907 reviews
Getting to the Louisiana bayous and plantations from New Orleans can be extremely difficult without renting a car, but this swamp boat adventure and plantations tour includes round-trip transport for a stress-free day. First, go deep into the swamps safely with a guide, and then visit two Southern plantations with lunch included. Plus, you can choose from two different swamp-boat options for whatever best meets your budget.

We had a great guide for the home tour, and learned a lot from him. Make sure you have reservations, as capacity is limited with Covid-19 guidelines, and there are temperature checks. We liked walking around the gardens and grounds by ourselves, too. Good restaurant and really nice gift shop in premises, too.

We were attracted to Oak Alley by the beautiful pictures of the treed walkway leading to the front door that gives the plantation its name. The house and the grounds are very pretty. Lots of great photo opportunities. Easy to find on the road that parallels the Mississippi river on the south side, well signed and free parking. The property makes an effort to keep visitors safe. The size of the grounds makes social distancing easy. Crowds were small on a Saturday morning in July, which allowed us to take pictures with nobody in the background all along the alley. Tours are limited to 8 people every 10-15 minutes, so even though crowds were light, there was a bit of a wait to enter the main house. I would recommend you get right in line if you are on a tight schedule and take pictures after the tour. We did have an enjoyable conversation with other travelers while waiting. Everything was clean and we felt comfortable visiting during covid. Staff were generally friendly. The only disappointment was our guide at the main house. I think he was trying, but he struggled to make eye contact and never smiled and gave us a minimum of information. His delivery was very wooden, even the jokes sounded like he was reciting something he had difficulty memorizing. It made the tour very awkward. I hate to say that, because again, I think he was trying. Prizes are in line with the other plantations in the area and fair, we paid 25 dollars per adult. Crowds are limited but you can't get tickets online. You have to buy them onsite, first come, first served. The grounds include an exhibit on slave quarters which you can see at your own pace. I did not have the impression that the exhibition white washed the reality of slavery. The cabins were moved from other locations closer into the park and partially rebuild precisely so visitors could see them and so that slavery wasn't left out of the picture. The guide we had did not make light of slavery or joke about it, that was just not our experience at all. I hope that places like this can be preserved with all of their history. Bring a hat and possibly a fan, it's hot outside (it's Louisiana after all).

The Oak Alley Plantation has along with historical grounds and Plantation home, a great restaurant, beautiful cottages(9 of them) for the perfect getaway for any occasion. The drive here is wonderful as the River Road gives views of the Plantation homes, the Mississippi River and a lot of scenery. Upon arriving at the check in point, the restaurant is where you check in, there is a bakery and ice cream shop area also. We were welcomed warmly by Ms. Aubrey who drove out to our cottage to give us a tour and answer any questions we may have. The cottages are beautiful and nicely appointed with amenities such as electric fireplace, flat screen television, beautiful paintings and new appliances, the microwave with a pizza oven on the bottom which is great if you want a pizza snack at night. The bed is nice and comfortable and linens very nice quality. The bathroom is comfortable and well lit. The cottage is only four years old but is in new condition in all areas of cleanliness, comfort and modern feel! You have access to the grounds for a nice morning or evening walk. Highly recommend for any occasion!

Oak alleys is a must see because of it being the most photographed around. The oak tree alley is impressive. The house is in great condition and contains many period items. Their slave cabins were very interesting and they had several period displays that were good.

We came via Cajun Encounters tour bus. What a wonderful way to travel. Our bus driver, Allen, gave us a lot of Louisiana information while in the bus. Very informative. Oak Alley is a gorgeous property. Built over 150 years ago by Mr. Roman, you get a good glimpse of what life was like back then. I kept thinking, "it's over 90 degrees today. How did these people survive without AC! "🙂 28 oaks surround the property. 28 columns around the house. There is a tour guide only for the large house. Sadly, very few of the Roman family items remain. However, the house is filled with period pieces. Once you enter the property and have your house tour ticket, get in line at the house for a tour. With covid restrictions, less people can enter for each tour. We had to wait 30 plus minutes outside before entering the house. The rest of the Plantation is a self guided tour of the gardens, lawn area and slave quarters. There are bathrooms when you enter as well as at the restaurant. Great gift shop! Be sure to have a free tiny sample of praline. Excellent sit down restaurant! We had the half pound burgers that were delicious. You get a side with the burger, cup of gumbo, seasoned potatoes or side salad. A great place to spend the day.
